I was invited to attend the 30th anniversary of Sifu Anthony “Moy Tung” Dandridge’s first-school opening. I went there as a reporter, as well as one of the speakers. The other speakers were my sifu, Sifu Nelson Chan, and my sisooks (young uncles) Sisook Lester Lau, Sisook Douglas Lee, Sisook Julian Cordero, Sisook Dr. John Moy, Sisook Pete Pajil, Sisook Richard Andino, and special guest Sisook William Moy, the son of Grandmaster Moy Yat. Other speakers included my sidais (young brothers/cousins) Sidai Barry O’Brian and Sidai Aaron Vyvial. Other special guests who did not take stage were Simo Helen Moy (wife of GM Moy Yat) and Miguel Hernandez, another member of SSA (Special Student Association) from GM Moy Yat’s lineage.
Anthony Dandridge was given the name Moy Tung by Grandmaster Moy Yat when he became a disciple. This follows traditional martial arts culture, whereby, the disciple takes on the family name of the master. Tung, meaning East, was given to Anthony to reflect his dedication to the way of the East. He trained under GM Moy Yat from 1980 until his grandmaster’s passing in 2001. He opened up his first school in 1988, and now has 25 branches throughout the USA, with over one thousand students practicing Moy Yat Ving Tsun system under him.
