When it comes, form a bridge, by intercepting the path that it takes. When it goes, escort to seek the way. When the hands are free, the path is clear, engage without worry.
Welcome to somerset Applied Ving Tsun, Simple, Direct, Efficient
Sifu David Peterson (WSL VT Combat Science)
Here at SAVT, we aim to teach the undiluted version of WSL VT (Wong Shun Leung Ving Tsun). Wong was undoubtedly Ip Man's most accomplished student and personal coach to to Bruce Lee.
The pure system of WSL VT has been preserved and passed down in its entirety by Sifu David Peterson (Malaysian Combat Science).
Due to our permanently evolving method of teaching this pure art and the incredibly high level of skill that our students achieve, we have quickly become one of the leading Ving Tsun schools in the West Country.
We professionally coach, in a transparent, egoless, safe enviroment, allowing the student (intermediate or complete beginner) to develop quickly and efficiently.
Rather than relying on brute strength and physical aptitude, the version and method of Wing Chun we work with, uses science, "applied body mechanics", enhanced reflexes and the body's natural skeletal structure to achieve superior results within any real street combat scenario. Because of the purity of this very effective, personal defence system, practioners develop real usable skills in a relatively short time frame. Anxiety and fear are lessened, giving way to a more assertive and positive outlook on life, allowing one the freedom to just be.
In our school we always put our students first, knowledge is key. We are not training clones, all people are different and require a more intimate personal approach to their own individual Ving Tsun journey. Here at SAVT its about bringing out the best in people, allowing them to become more positive and mindful. After all, daily life is not about fighting, or how many certificates/belts one has.
In the real world, its 95% about how individuals percieve themselves and how they go about their daily business. Surely what is really important is an individuals happiness, as science already knows that a happy, grounded and active person, is generally a well person. Devoting time to some form of intelligent movement that connects mind, body and spirit, is beneficial to our wellbeing beyond measure. It is this that drives us and keeps us focused, reality is what we make it. Of course learning a self defence art has its benefits, but it will always come secondary to an individuals well being. We are here to help them grow and reach their own goals within this amazing system of self discovery and within themselves.
Constantly we ask ourselves, Do our students understand exactly why they have been told to train in a specific way? Is it transparent? Is it simple? Is it scientific? Does it make perfect sense? Can they see results in their own training and can they see exactly where their training needs to improve?
Coaching our members 24/7, 365 days a year, because we believe in our students, the way they believe in us!
Our Wing Chun, our way, results you can see and feel.
"When the mind is not present, we look and do not see; we hear and do not understand; we eat and do not know the taste of what we eat."
Sifu David Peterson (Malaysian Combat Science) and his most senior UK coach, Ged Kennerk (Combat Science UK, abmvt, Stockport Academy)
Real skills are earned with hard work and determination. These guys are amongst the best and yet they still remain egoless and true, it really doesn't get better than this.
