Classes & Training

Modern methods, traditional values. Developing concrete skills for the concrete jungle in a hands on, interactive environment focused on developing the individual’s best qualities as the WSLVT system works for them.

What is the focus of our training?  Function, NOT Fashion.  We train to make our skills to be Simple, Direct, and Efficient.  Belts, sashes, and uniforms do not win the fight.  A solid practice of the System, Science, and Skills give you the individual what you need to work best for you putting the power in your hands.

Ving Tsun training



The “Young Idea Form” is the blueprint and most important form of the system containing its fundamental Concepts, Structures, and Actions. Developing essential elements such as the Yee Ji Kim Yeung Ma (Stance), Centreline Theory, Chiu Ying (Facing), and Lat Sau Jik Chung (Springy Forward Elbow Intention) which is a behavioural concept action unique to WSLVT. It is the roots from which the practitioner’s understanding, practice, and skills will grow from.



This Second “Bridge Seeking” Form gives the structures and actions of the first form life. It is an introduction to essential Footwork such as Juen Ma (Shifting) and Seung Ma (Forward Moving Stance) as well as the concept of Djoi Ying (Chasing Centre). Combat is alive and dynamic. Your opponent will not be a complient drill partner who will execute predictable robotic attacks. Chum Kiu provides the tools and concepts to be diverse, in adverse situations, with Control and Balance. The form also provides the resources to building a key training method in Ving Tsun, Chi Sau.



In combat, mistakes will be made and situations will arise that will compromise your ability to apply yourself dynamically. That’s the reality of fighting and combat. There are no rules in the concrete ring and the system’s Third Form breaks some of the fundamental rules of the system to help us recover from extreme situations.



Containing structures, actions, and concepts from all three open-hand forms, it is an essential tool for honing those structures, angles, distance, timing, energy, and overall coordination.  The wooden dummy gives you  the ability to train Ving Tsun actions with a training partner that doesn’t mind the physical contact and will give you the feedback information to take your skills to a higher level of application. 



The empty hand forms and wooden dummy training are taken to the next level of Control, Balance, and Coordination through the practice of the Ving Tsun Gwun (Pole).  It develops an incredible connection and cultivation of ‘Ground Power’ through a solid stance base practiced through the Che Gwun Kuen exercise.  The Pole Form and its drills develop the unified application of the legs, body, and arms as ONE explosive and powerful action.  



The second of the two Ving Tsun weapons and traditionally the last element of training introduced to the practitioner.  A high skill level of understanding, application, and control of the open hand forms, chi sau, wooden dummy, and boxing applications are needed to reach this level.  The concepts and angles of the Ving Tsun Do are unique to themselves and in some ways conflict with the fundamental concepts of the system.  An exciting reward to an exciting journey of training.

Boxing & Sparring

Focus Pads Training

As part of S3VT’s training we reinforce the system’s qualities with a dynamic training regimen which includes Focus Pads, VT Boxing, and Sparring to develop the skills necessary for the results necessary.  The ability to execute punches of quality, not quantity.  To be able to hit your target with control and force.  To finish the your opponent decisively and efficiently.  At the end of the day, it all comes down to having quality strikes.  The forms, drills, dummy, and weapons are all tools to developing efficient attributes that get the job done.



Chi Sau is unique to Ving Tsun that trains and develops natural reflex responses for when engaging in close range combat ranges.  It is NOT fighting but a means of developing attributes that compliment fighting skills.  It teaches us to practice the concept of “Djoi Ying, Mok Djoi Sau” (Always Chasing Centre, Never Chasing Hands) as well as the unconscious awareness to create and respond to angles and lines of force that allow you to counter attack your opponent without challenging their lines of force and attack.

Real To Reel // Chi Sau Drilling • Bong Sau Counter

During our second training session with PVT España - Ving Tsun Almería we worked a variety of Lin Siu Dai Da actions through Chi Sau amd the relative counters to each action.

Here we explored one of three counters to Jut Da in employing Bong Sau when our space has been compromised by the aforementioned initiating action.

Employing Bong Sau in a proactive manner to intercept the attacking action applying Paau Bong (throwing Bong) concepts and activity in coordination with Juen Ma and Yi Bong (shifting Bong) to have the line of attack, force, mass, and momentum off our centre while creating an angle of counter attack as a result of the recovered control of person and position.
The Bong Sau elbows intention toward the centre of our training partner and would-be opponent.

Note: Laap Sau is the viable option if/when our line of counter attack is obstructed by any form of reaction in which the helping hand does its job to get the job done.

Thank you to my brother @pvt_spain and and extended family at PVT Group 純。詠春 - Almeria.
Special thanks to Pablo Nevado for the video.

Real To Reel // Counter Actions 

What WSLVT focuses on developing is, simply, one's punch.
But how do we facilitate being able to deliver the punch and/or counter-punch to target when met with a live opponent's aggression, counter-actions, and reactions?

This is where our controlling hands such as Taan Sau, Pak Sau, Laap Sau, Jut Sau, and Wu Sau work in coordination with our counter-punch and punch as Lin Siu Dai Da (simultaneous block/control and attack) actions of Taan Da, Pak Da, Laap Da, Jut Da, and others.

Driling and training helps us develop the reflexes for our actions to adapt to manage the would-be opponent's intercepting, inhibiting, or retaliating actions challenging your counter-punch, punch, or line of attack while working to control centre, position, and space.
We learn to change our actions to adapt to manage the would-be opponent's live actions and reactions.

Drilling helps us learn how to maintain our structure, the correct angle of engagement, manage distance/space, develop good timing, and invest the right energy toward developing controlled and balanced actions that develop one's power that channels into that most important resource...
The punch.

Thank you to our family and friends at @kungfualmeria !

Real To Reel // Jut Da Counter - Taan Da

One of three counters to Jut Da was Taan Da when visiting my brother Sifu Juan and his great group of students at @pvt_spain 

When one maintains positional control of the initiating action, Jut Da, we can take position/consume space to shut down the attack while destabilizing the structure and balance of the attacker by managing good timing and angle.

Heartfelt thank you to my brother Sifu Juan Manuel Sanz and PVT Spain for their great welcome and opportunity to train with them.

Real To Reel // Focus Mitts Training

Focus mitts are a great resource to develop one's target recognition of person and position which also heightens moving target recognition and timing along with fitness and power.

Both parties should develop equally with the focus mitts holder also employing chain punch mechanics in coordination with good stance, footwork, and positioning.

This clip was from our recent visit with our extended family @kungfualmeria in Spain.
