Welcometo the Academy of Kung Fu. We teach traditional Martial Arts in Richmond’s West End. We teach the Moy Yat Ving Tsun (pronounced “Wing Chun”) Kung Fu system. This style of Martial Arts comes from the Shaolin Temple in China. The system was passed through seven generations of Grandmasters until Yip Man became the eighth generation Grandmaster. He taught in Hong Kong from 1949-1972. Among his famous students are Bruce Lee, Wong Sheung Leung, Moy Bing Wah, Ip Chun, Ip Ching, Ma Po, and many other famous Sifus. One of his closest students was Grandmaster Moy Yat. Grandmaster Moy Yat taught in Chinatown, NY. One of his closest students, Anthony Moy Tung opened the first Ving Tsun school in Richmond in 1986.

 In 2011 one of Grandmaster Moy Tung’s students, Sifu O’Brien, opened the West End branch, the Academy of Kung Fu.

We have carried on the traditions as taught through the generations and maintained by Grandmaster Moy Tung. When other styles were turning their Martial Arts into sports and promoting belts, Grandmaster Moy Tung taught his students in the traditional manner as he was taught. He understood that Martial Arts is not for competition, games or promoting the ego. The way of Martial Arts is about self defense, good health, self improvement and improving one’s community.

The Academy of Kung Fu is dedicated to preserving these traditional Martial Arts qualities. We uphold the original goals of Kung Fu training including:


     – Self Defense

     – Good Health

     – Self Improvement
