Continuing with the analogue to digital conversion release of one of many volumes of the late Sifu Moy Yat’s video releases is this submission of an oral history of Ving Tsun Gung Fu as his scholastic and personal accounts have revealed. What could be weeks of conversations enjoyed over tea is condensed into a concise 75-minute runtime, regarding Sifu Moy’s history of involvement in the celebrated Chinese martial art.
Moy Yat was also known as a passionate scholar of the system and a preservationist of traditional Chinese implements that complement the rich history in calligraphy, the Kuen Kuit (Ving Tsun Fist Parables Chops), and now in modern technological format through video, with excerpts of archival video footage from his own collection, sharing his perspectives in an oral and visual history form to the viewing audience.
