Moy Yat Student Generation:

Grandmaster Moy Tung

Richmond Headquarter School

Grandmaster Moy Tung began training under Moy Yat in 1980 and remained one of his closest disciples until Moy Yat’s passing in 2001. After a very short time training, he was pleased and amazed to find the incredible power available in even the most basic of the Ving Tsun principles and techniques he had learned.

During his first years of training at the Chinatown School in New York City, Moy Tung commuted from Philadelphia. Within two years Moy Tung embraced the training of Ving Tsun Kung Fu as a full-time commitment, and he was accepted as a member of Grandmaster Moy Yat’s Special Student Association (SSA) in 1984. His received his Kung Fu name, Moy Tung, meaning ‘Man from the East’, because of his Eastern-like approach to kung fu training and life.

Moy Tung founded the Richmond, VA Moy Yat Kung Fu Academy in 1986. He teaches the system the same way it was passed on to him. During Grandmaster Moy Yat’s lifetime, he regularly brought him to Richmond to give seminars for his students. He made frequent training trips to New York City, often taking students with him to give them full exposure to Kung Fu training and Kung Fu life.

Today, his Kung Fu family has grown to more than twenty sifus around the US, three generations deep. Moy Tung has worked hard to develop his own Kung Fu and that of his students to the highest level, authentically preserving the complete Ving Tsun Kung Fu system.
