Kung Fu is Good for You!

If you’re looking to train martial arts, there are many options, but the Ving Tsun Kung Fu system is especially suited for women because it’s not dependent on the size or strength of practitioners. Instead, developed over millennia in China, Ving Tsun Kung Fu relies on body structure and relaxation, making it ideal for anyone facing larger, stronger opponents. Portland Kung Fu has taught the Ving Tsun system since 2012. New students in this program train only with other women. They may be any age, fitness level or body type.

Why practice Ving Tsun Kung Fu and not another martial art?

You’ll become more confident on the street, at home and in the workplace, because you know you can take care of yourself in any situation. You’ll tap into an ancient practice rich in tradition: The Ving Tsun was developed by the Shaolin Buddhist nun Ng Moy in 17th Century China. She taught the system to a young woman she befriended, Yim Ving Tsun, in 17th Century China, who displayed the power and practicality of this new method so well the system was later named after her. Since then, Ving Tsun Kung Fu has become one of the world’s most popular martial arts due to its efficiency and effectiveness.
