"Chi Sao 3." Iowa City: The Moy Yat Ving Tsun Kung Fu Video Shop, 1999.
The Chi Sao 3 instructional video is a rare opportunity to watch Grand Master Moy Yat personally demonstrate dozens of Ving Tsun techniques in the chi sao (sticking hands) drill. In this one-and-a-half-hour seminar, you're introduced to all the stages of chi sao training from the most basic to the most advanced, including don chi sao (one-arm sticking hands), luk sao (rolling hands), tsui ma (moving the horse), and jip sao--jow sao (run hands--catch hands). A senior student explains the nature and purpose of each aspect of chi sao while Grand Master Moy Yat performs them with a partner at both slow and normal speeds. Chi Sao 3 covers the powerful fundamental attacks of the Ving Tsun system and progresses to set-ups, combination techniques, counter-attacks, and self-defense applications. Core principles such as do ying (facing) and fan sao (following hands) are discussed and illustrated with plenty of practical examples.

"Siu Nim Tao." Iowa City: The Moy Yat Ving Tsun Kung Fu Video Shop, 1999.
Grand Master Moy Yat's classic Siu Nim Tao instructional video offers an incredibly detailed analysis of the first Ving Tsun form.

Examples from the form are used to illuminate the key Ving Tsun principles, centerline theory, relaxation, simultaneous attack and defense, and economy of motion. Siu Nim Tao includes demonstrations of self-defense and chi sao applications of the form, as well as a question and answer session between Grand Master Moy Yat and his students. This video is an essential component in your study of the form that is both a beginner's exercise and the most advanced form in the Ving Tsun system.

"Stories of Zen." Iowa City: The Moy Yat Ving Tsun Kung Fu Video Shop, 1999.
Storytelling is one of the traditional ways in which the Ving Tsun system is passed on from generation to generation, and Stories of Zen is truly a masterwork in that tradition. In this hour-and-a-half-long video, Grand Master Moy Yat shares his insights into kung fu life through a series of thought-provoking tales, some ancient and others drawn from his personal life. Each short story speaks volumes on the nature of Ving Tsun Kung Fu and the methods with which it's taught and learned. Grand Master Moy Yat uses the stories as a springboard for discussing kung fu principles, moving eloquently from abstract philosophical ideas to their application in the classroom and in daily life. As with any great classic you'll want to watch this video again and again, each time finding its wisdom and humor more fresh and inspiring than ever. It's the perfect gift for any student regardless of their level of experience: As your kung fu grows, new levels of meaning open up to you in Stories of Zen. Although this is not a 'techniques' video, it is one of the most important works in kung fu history and should find a place in every martial artist's library.
