Tell us a little bit about the core principles of Ving Tsun and their origins?
I could list off a bunch of things like centreline, balance, simultaneous attack and defence, etc. but I think that would miss the most important principle, which concerns self-control. I don’t mean inhibiting yourself from doing things, but rather learning how not to allow your environment to control you and learning how to control your environment including yourself.
