Grandmaster Chu Shong Tin Passes away! The WVTAA extends it condolences to the family, friends and disciples of Grandmaster Chu Shong Tin. It was my honor to have met GM Chu in 2000 and had the privilege of interviewing him in Hong Kong. His wisdom and knowledge of life and Ving Tsun was truly that of a Ving Tsun master. One of the things he said to me regarding Ving Tsun and Life that to this day I recall vividly; "When you have a problem, cut it in half, if you still have a problem, cut it in half again until it is reduced to its simplest equation and then you will find the answer."
The passing of Grandmaster Chu Shong Tin is truly a monumental loss to Ving Tsun and the Martial Arts community at large.
