“ABMVT (Applied Body Mechanics Ving Tsun), is neither a style nor lineage, it is a training method. Although it was borne out of the WSLVT method and the experiences of Ernie Barrios and his LA crew, whilst training with Gary Lam and David Peterson (both students of Wong Shun Leung, himself a student of Ip Man)

While ABMVT respects the past and certain individuals involved in the development of Ving Tsun (Wing Chun), we are not bound by it. ABMVT instead seeks to explain traditional training through sports science and training methods. Instead of shrouding things by the use of tales and myths, ABMVT uses clarity of terms and training, which in turn helps the individual to learn at a faster rate

ABMVT is built on the core concepts of balance, leverage (the line of power/force) and targeting. These concepts are taught through the correct appliance of body mechanics and alignment which are then reinforced through the training of the forms Siu Nim Tao, Chum Kiu, Biu Jee, Wooden Dummy, Pole, Knives and the drills Single arm Chi Sao (stationary and with footwork), Lap Sao and double arm Chi Sao. The teaching is geared towards individual development

For anyone seeking to learn a traditional martial art using modern methods; we feel ABMVT offers the best alternative”
