Certification Pathway

One of the primary objectives of the International Moy Yat Ving Tsun Federation (The Moy Family, SSA & GSSA) is to preserve the legacy of excellence of Patriarch Moy Yat. This is done through the IMYVTF. Its policies represent the wishes of the Moy Family and IMYVTF Grandmasters' Council.

 

As the family and good reputation grows, it becomes increasingly important to distinguish those instructors and schools who are recognized as meeting the high standards the Moy Family wishes to uphold.
