This weekend marked the 4th anniversary of the Montgomery County Kung Fu school in Gaithersburg. Students from NYC, DC, Virginia Beach, Richmond, Maine and Maryland participated in a full weekend of training. Followed by dim sum (traditional Chinese brunch) at New Fortune restaurant, a favorite spot for our kung fu family.

Training sessions included:

* An in-depth study of the Jut Sau application in Don Chi Sau, Chi Sau and the Ving Tsun forms.

* Ving Tsun anti-grappling applications.

* Lectures from four Ving Tsun Sifus (kung fu teachers) discussing topics such as the importance of maintaining the horse stance, Ving Tsun posture, the feel of centerline and how Ving Tsun trains us to protect our openings and cut off the attacker.
