1st Escrima Seminar of 2022

Escrima returns to Austin Ving Tsun with our 2022 Escrima Seminars! These seminars are open to both AustinVT members as well as non-members. The Filipino weapons art of Escrima is a great companion to empty-hand skills of Ving Tsun (Wing Chun).

Our Next Austin Escrima Seminar will be held in the fall.
