A Chat with Moy Yat Ving Tsun (Wing Chun) Kung Fu
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Moy Yat Ving Tsun kung fu is Omaha’s only (and oldest) school dedicated only to Ving Tsun kung fu. We teach in the traditional family style just like Yip Man did with his students Bruce Lee and Moy Yat. No ranks, belts, or testing; just proven techniques and a safe, relaxed atmosphere to train in.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Relax and realize that every Ving Tsun student who has walked in the doors has started out the exact same way. Our school’s family-style teaching allows you to train at your own pace and have the opportunity to touch hands with every student in the school from day one.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
There were few kung fu schools in Omaha when we opened here in 2003, and none dedicated solely to Ving Tsun kung fu. We wanted a place to practice, teach, and grow the Omaha kung fu community. We maintain close relationships with our extended kung fu family and train with them regularly.
What do you love most about your job?
Our family-style teaching lets everyone work out together. To see the new student grow, develop their skills, and get those “aha” moments is fantastic. It’s also exceptionally rewarding to see a longtime student learn something new during someone’s first intro lesson. We learn kung fu in many ways.
