World Ving Tsun Athletic Association and Sifu Darrell Jordan?
Anyone familiar with this school or instructor?
Having seen all of the _ing _hun shinanagins on the forums my interest is a bit piqued.
The school offers an intro week of class for $25 and you get a badass _ing _hun t-shirt and they offer a "full contact" class on Tues nights with the "Hammerhead Fight Club. It takes place once a week and is packed with grueling training and full contact in the end which includes grappling and take downs." (http://darrelljordan.moyyat.com/abouttheschool.html.
Darrell Jordan's Orlando Wing Chun School good
I am currently a student there! Been training there 2 months. The school rocks if what you are looking for is a small high quality school with traditional wing chun taught with a combative spirit, smart and friendly students who are motivated and serious, and a good sifu who keeps it real in terms of practical application and integration into practical sparring and fighting. Occasional physical conditioning sessions are thrown in to encourage fitness and mental toughness.
The videos are just that - instructional videos, nothing weird there. People who don't have access to a local school but want to learn wing chun rudiments need videos like that. I have the first set which shows Sil Lum Tao from different angles, explains some applications and points out important structural elements. You could learn the form well from those videos.
Some Wing Chun is more mellow some more aggressive. I would rate this school as being fairly high on the aggressive scale in terms of the training approach and intensity, though don't get me wrong it is very friendly. The intent over there is to teach (and learn) practical combat wing chun, and that is definitely what you get.
I have a base in JKD and Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do/ Jun Fan Gung Fu which I have acquired from training in the past (when I was in a different area) with Lamar Davis and by attending many seminars with Bruce Lee's original students. From this I developed the desire to go deeper into the pure Wing Chun training as I was always impressed by the combative ability of those who had done so. Sifu Jordan and his instructors, while not instructing in JKD per se, do instruct in the kickboxing, sparring, and street application of what is taught and occasionally mix up the training with these type drills. One of the top instructors came to the school with a Jeet Kune Do base, so he teaches from that perspective as well. But the core of the training is pure traditional Wing Chun.
I give the school two thumbs up, it's the real deal.
