Fall 2012 Seminar with Master Webb

Dai-Sifu Jeff Webb (6th degree), leader of the National Ving Tsun Organization (NVTO), was in town recently to teach a 3-day seminar at Arizona Ving Tsun. Accompanying Master Webb was Sifu Harry Lundell (3rd degree), from the Austin, Texas school.

Friday morning prior to the seminar, Dai-Sifu Webb and Sifu Lundell had breakfast with longtime friend and Wing Chun colleague, Prof. Sifu Joy Chaudhuri. On Friday afternoon and on Saturday, Sifu Steve Frerichs (3rd degree) and the students of Ving Tsun Arizona were treated to in-depth instruction on lat-sau fighting techniques. As Master Webb explained, "The key to Ving Tsun fighting lies in combining the softness and yielding of the chi-sau training with the realism and aggressiveness of the lat-sau. For effective Ving Tsun fighting skills, you can't have one without the other."

During the course of the seminar, the students noticed a marked improvement in their skills and benefited from the high-level of instruction that Master Webb provided. At the culmination of the seminar, a number of students were tested and advanced in rank; the most notable being assistant instructor Tom Sylvester who was promoted to Student Grade Twelve.

One of the hallmarks of the NVTO training program is the attention to advanced training for instructors. On Sunday morning, Master Webb worked privately with both Sifu Steve and assistant instructor Tom Higgins (1st degree) on curriculum and instructor development. Following the long weekend of training, Sifu Steve commented, "The seminar was great and the students were really jazzed! We're looking forward to seeing Master Webb again in 2013!"
