The WVTA Hall of Fame program was initiated in 2005 2 years after the formation of the (WVTAA now known as the WVTA) as a way to acknowledge a Sifu and Grandmaster for their extraordinary and unselfish contributions to the worldwide Ving Tsun family and to the Chinese Martial Arts in general. The brain child of Sifu Jordan; is to recognize 2 superb people for the year, nominated by the worldwide VT/WC community and voted on by the prestigious WVTA Executive Board. The nominations are tallied and the top 3 nominee's from each category are voted upon. This is strictly for recognition of Ving Tsun GM and Sifu (Spelled in all of its various forms). There are no fee's as a pretext to receiving the award/recognition. This is the only organization that does not charge for induction.
Also in that year, a Life Time Achievement Award was developed for recognition of any martial artist apart from VT/WC for major contributions made to the martial arts community as a whole and bringing recognition of the martial arts to the general public.
In 2016, the WVTA has instituted 4 other categories of recognition: 1. Diamond, Gold, Silver and Bronze Achievement award, for VT/WC stylists only. The Diamond Award = 50 or more years contribution, Gold = 40 or more years, Silver = 30 years and Bronze = 20 years. Finally, the Student of the Yearaward is for any Branch, Charter or Affiliate school as well as any executive member school[s], that would like to participate. This is a voluntary program and again, there are no costs to the recipient or Head Instructor of the school.
