We work on technique, structure, body condition and partner exercises. We always start with a warm-up, which also includes facets of Ving Tsun. You then start independently with the form training, followed by partner exercises in which you are directed by the trainer.
The trainings proceed in a spontaneous and relaxed manner. In addition to the regular training components, we bring as much variety as possible into the lessons. We sometimes do this through form training with the group or bag training, sometimes through training with the "pads" or we work more on the physical condition. But vital to Ving Tsun is that you understand the concept. The thought process and ideas influence the way you carry out techniques and develop your Ving Tsun. As a result, it can occur that in a lesson theory and background are discussed at length. Because of this trainings can vary considerably.
The guidance in the trainings is very individual and directed at independent learning. There are no military style drills, quite the contrary, it is expected that a practitioner shows the desire and will to learn. This develop more insight and get you faster in touch with the system than when you are leaded in everyting.
Naturally, at the first lesson, you do not yet know what the intention is, but as you train longer you develop a sense of this and of what points you need to work on. Beginners and advanced train simultaneously in the lessons. It is a mistake to think that advanced students must train only with each other to develop further. Beginners can of course train with advanced students to develop themselves to that level. But vice-versa, it is also beneficial to advanced students to train with people of every level. Also the act of teaching itself is a good way to improve in Ving Tsun.
Advanced Training: Advanced Training: If you have sufficient basic knowledge and skills, you may be qualify to participate in the advanced training that is held once a month with the core team. This allows you to become even better and add more knowledge to your level in Ving Tsun.
Core Group: The core group consists of a team of advanced practitioners which have trained for several years. The aim of the core group is to give advanced students the extra opportunity to train at higher level with each other. Secondly the core group members can reinforce the other groups and transfer their knowledge to other members. If you the wish to join the core group, you may indicate this, but eventually you must have a level which corresponds with the group and a commitment to the trainings in order to qualify.
