The National Ving Tsun Organization (NVTO) is a professional martial arts association whose purpose is to pass on the traditional concepts of the Ving Tsun kung fu system with a modern approach to training and development.
Our founder and leader, Master Jeff Webb, brings more than 38 years of international training and teaching experience to our network of affiliated schools around the country. From the basics through the most advanced levels, the NVTO represents the complete system of Ving Tsun kung fu with a particular emphasis on quality instruction and true martial values.
The NVTO student program consists of twelve student grades aimed at building foundational skills in striking, grappling and counter-grappling, footwork, reflex-training, and practical self-defense. Later in this program, students are also taught how to deal with multiple opponents, armed opponents, and even how to apply soft defenses for controlling an opponent without inflicting unnecessary harm. Depending on the individual and the training intensity, completion of the twelve student grades takes between three and four years. Building on this foundation, the advanced student is then exposed to the higher-level material taught in the instructor and master programs.
Every NVTO Certified Instructor is tasked with maintaining high standards of personal skill and instruction, as well as keeping up to date on the latest developments in the training program. An ancient Chinese proverb which speaks of having “many knives, but none of them sharp,” stands as a stark reminder to focus on high quality in one’s techniques rather than a high quantity of techniques.
Master Webb regularly visits each branch location, ensuring quality control and a uniform standard throughout the organization. During these weekend seminars, he works personally with every NVTO student and provides on-going training to the local instructors.
Many of the Ving Tsun techniques and strategies are highly-compatible with the needs of law enforcement, security personnel and the military. Master Webb is also available for specialized instruction and consultation in these areas.
