…the founder of Leung Ting WingTsun®, Leung Ting!
I was originally inspired to become a student of Sifu Leung Ting because of his steadfast rejection of the charlatans which have hurt the reputation of the martial arts. These tricks by unscrupulous promoter-martial artists are meant to deceive and when their deception is clear, it disappoints their naïve followers but also it makes one wonder what else this ‘instructor’ is lying about…
Sifu Leung Ting’s presentation of Wing Tsun is without pretense or artifice. He simply shows Wing Tsun as it is and does not conduct demonstrations of questionable content. In fact, Great Grandmaster Leung Ting has gone out of his way to expose the charlatans with two books and a video describing the phony tricks some use in demonstrations.
Sifu Leung Ting has been very successful at allowing his martial art to stand on its own merit.
The video is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gUHajQUQfk
In addition, two books written by Great Grandmaster Leung exposing the tricks are:
Skills of the Vagabonds: http://www.wle.com//products/SkillsoftheVagabonds.html
Behind the Incredibles: http://www.wle.com//products/BehindtheIncredibles.html
The books should also be available at larger online book stores.
Of course these phony tricks have nothing to do with self-defense!
