Hey, sorry to bother.
I'm a beginner on Wing Chun (_ing _un) and I was shown this forum by a friend who absolutely hates it (and frequents this forum obviously). He's really adamant on getting me away from it, as he believes it's not worthwhile in any way, be it self defence or fighting. He's also one of the people I'd most trust with in terms of opinions related to this kind of topic, but his word completely contradicts what my teacher has told me, so I'm now just lost.
I was hoping I could have your insight, a Chunner who also frequents this website, on this topic. What do you reckon about Chun's potential to be used for self defence (about half the reason I'm looking into martial arts).
