  • The Beginning of My Kung Fu Life

    The Beginning of My Kung Fu Life

    How I Came to be a Student of Ving Tsun Kung Fu My Kung Fu History *This story was originally written around 2010 and was first published in our student handbook. By Sifu Dale Steigerwald Once one begins the journey of learning Kung Fu, his or her life becomes a part of the history of kung fu. I began my pursuit of Ving Tsun Kung Fu at the age of seventeen under Sifu Dino Rhelos. I met him at a Sheetz gas station in Baden, Pennsylvania over the summer of 1996. There is a saying in Kung Fu circles that states, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear" and on that day the teacher did literally appear, and I will assume that I was indeed ready because that day ....

    Weapon training: The Secret to Success in Wing Chun Why is it that so many students of the wing chun system fail to see any real improvement in their empty hand skills, despite spending many years on the system? It’s because they don’t spend enough time on weapon training. The weapon set of the Ving Tsun system has been designed to not only improve your ability to use both edged and blunt weapons of any size, but did you know that weapons training also improves your empty hand skills?

  • Opportunities and Challenges - It Doesn't Alway Have to be Easy

    Opportunities and Challenges - It Doesn't Alway Have to be Easy

    It happens several times per month. I get a call from a potential student who is interested in learning Ving Tsun exclusivly. They often tell me about how they have looked far and wide and suddenly they stumbled upon my school (which has been operating and open to the public for 13 years now) and there is only one problem- we are too far away. What consistutes "too far" is different for many. For some people it's an hour and half by car. For others its anything over a 10 minute drive. Part of me wants to laugh. The other part wants to just hang up. I want to laugh because if there is one thing we know about finding a quality martial art and a qualified teacher to teach it, the student ....

  • Beaver County PA Wing Chun Reaction Time Drill

    "The average reaction time of a visual stimulus is 0.17 seconds. Plenty of time to take decisive action even in a worse case scenario." Not a knife defense demonstration, but a reaction time demonstration utilizing a training knife to illustrate the point that decisive action can always beat reaction even in a worse case scenario. In this drill we can learn that if we do not telegraph we can move at a rate that is impossible for a would be attacker to defend against in a static situation. Thank yo to Mike Z. for helping with the demonstration with Sifu Dale Steigerwald. If you're ready to get your training started sign up for your first class for free at ....
