News 2017

RIPSifu Darrell Jordan and the WVTA family extends its sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Mike Goericke and Matt Balducci and Justyn Rowe. Mike was the oldest son of Sifu Steve Goericke, Sifu Jordan's Sihing and best friend. Sifu Matt Balducci was a close friend of Sifu Jordan's in Florida. Matt was a true Ving Tsun Sifu and loved his Ving Tsun. May Peace be upon you both on your journey back to the loving embrace of God. You will always live forever in the hearts of those who knew you. Most recently Sifu Justyn Rowe passed away on October 02, 2017. Justyn was a disciple of mine and ran the Apopka Branch school in FL. His family is seeking help from family and friends along with anyone who would like to help them in their time of need.

​​​​2017 Hall of Fame

​​​Nominations submissions will no longer be accepted. Thank you to all who made submissions for this annual event.



21 June 2017 Adam Tihinen and Brian Survived!

​​Brian Messerli and Adam Tihinen have both concluded an intensive training work shop with Sifu Jordan. They spent 5 days for 8 hours a day, essentially learning their next level, Adam = Biu Jee and Brian = Muk Jong. It is a cram course and not easy to complete because of the amount of training involved on a daily basis. They consequently were issued Certificates of Survival which automatically inducts them into the Noble Brotherhood of the Dragon Hump, an exclusive brotherhood of survivors of Sifu Jordan's' Intensive Training Program (ITP). The WVTA sends its congratulations to both Brian and Adam, job well done!
