The removal of an intangible cultural manifestation from its original universe – in time and/or space – may become a powerful obstacle for its adequate preservation.
Ving Tsun, which first appeared in China hundreds of years ago, spread throughout the world, and today, counts with thousands upon thousands of followers. Not all of these, however, have the opportunity of learning about the relations of this art within the realm of its original culture.
In order to better explore the visit to the country in which our art originated and share the experience with those not present, On Board the Red Boat proposes a research about the historical traditions of Ving Tsun.
