Sifu Andrei Conyers passed away on Jan. 30, 2020. He was a highly experienced practioner of Moy Yat Ving Tsun and disciple of GM Moy Tung. He will be especially missed by the Ving Tsun community but will live within the hearts of all who knew him. Rest in Peace Andrei.
I have been monitoring since January the Wuhan virus and how it is affecting our society. When I believed things were getting back to normal, the protests came into being. Now we learn there is going to be a second wave of the virus according to experts and the msm. In saying this, I believe the prudent thing to do at this time is to suspend for this year the various Hall of Fame that we normally have, for obvious reasons. I was so hoping to get the association rolling again but it appears this year is not the time. My apologies for any inconvenience. Sifu d.

09 August 2023 - Sifu Jordan presenting his latest hand carved board to his friend Wendy and the Wah Hing crew.
Statement of Sifu Jordan - "This board could very well be the last board I carve. There is an extreme amount of refined energy concentrated in the wrists and shoulders when carving. Without explaining the reason for this, I will simply say that I find it quite painful now to concentrate the required energy in these locations. Coupled with the fact the eyes are also focusing at a level just as extreme, which seems to be another issue that is challenging me in this endeavor. I feel it may be time to preserve my eyes and joints and to refrain from carving except for perhaps very special occasions where I have plenty of time to produce the desired results in the product. I thank those of you who have ordered one of my boards and for your support of the WVTA." Sifu D.
