We don't know the guy. So we dont know if he is making the whole story up. Or part of it.
We also dont know the ability of the attacker.
So we have nothing to judge his martial arts effectiveness on exept one random guy who says he won a streetfight.
hence the no evidence bit.
A lot of this forum is based on the idea that you have to prove what you say. So random noob stories of street deadlyness just dont work.

No it won't. It won't help at all w/ applying locks or mobility on the ground. There are things that it does or CAN help with...but neither of these examples are relevant at all.

@grega- Ok I see where they're coming from. I suppose if you didn't see the conflict and it wasn't in a sport setting, there is no way to know for sure. However, it beggs the argument if you didn't see it, did it happen?
All in all, people only have to prove to themselves what works and what doesn't.
@Southpaw- Sorry, I shoulda said "in my opinion," not all WC is nor is taught alike. For me, sensitivity and power direction that took away from WC helps my locks and holds immensely. All of my circular paths are much more acute.
So, absolutely... for me.

It may or may not be true. It holds as much water as me saying I killed three bouncers with Judo whilst drunk or something equally as daft.
What kind? I studied various types of the Chun for five years and it thought me nothing. It bad habits. It's possible that I haven't been taught the 'real' chin but seeing as its consistently **** for grappling I'm no holding my breath I missed the boat on the real deal.

Yeah I hear ya Kovacs, who knows if he's telling the truth or not.
I'm sorry to hear of your WC experience; it isn't for everyone. It's important to find what works for you.
I learned some jujitsu, locks, submissions, and take-downs stemming from sambo, ross, jj and hapkido. Hapkido helped with locks and take-downs.

My favorite part of this thread is when the Aussie told about his mate using wing chun and then the MMA/BJJ guy jumped into the conversation...

My favorite part of this thread is when the Aussie told about his mate using wing chun, then the MMA/BJJ guy jumped into the conversation... and the kung fu guy necro'ed a six month old thread to tell us he can read.
