Ip Man Ving Tsun Match, Hong Kong

Wing Chun Indonesia proudly announced that it was invited to participate in a yearly Ip Man Ving Tsun tournament in Hong Kong on the 12th of April 2014. This is the first instance that Wing Chun Indonesia could compete in a worldwide tournament held by Ving Tsung Athletic Association (VTAA) – the first and the most accredited Wing Chun Organization in the world.

BoWC Team

Our participation in this tournament focuses on other things beside winning, such as introducing ourselves, learning and seeking experience from other countries, measuring and comparing our skills in Ip Man Wing Chun that we have trained in Indonesia so far. Winning the competition is never our main priority, as we believe that we are already a winner just by getting invited and be acknowledged as an even matched to other countries in the world.

Brotherhood of Wing Chun (BoWC) Indonesia has began a selection process since we received the official invitation from VTAA last year. The process also includes preparation and selection of all BoWC members from all around Indonesia.
