It also makes you a massive ***** with no credibility, because you'd be handicapping other martial artists for the benefit of your weak chun form i.e low hands, chin stuck out.

    One answer to this, would be, using Muay Thai as an example, no headshots for them, but no shinpads for you.
    People can call me a ***** because of the no head shots rule all they want, and I honestly don't care. Wanting to remember my birthday when I'm 45 doesn't make me a *****.

    Holding style v style and claiming superiority without headshots makes you a *****. Saying that, im fairly certain an ok boxer could put you out with a body shot.

    I also suspect you'll tap to eargrind with your first grappling style.

I can see wanting to experience all the different forms of martial arts, but sparring isn't always the best way to achieve that, unless they use specific types of attacks/defenses (such as bars, take downs, pressure strikes, ...).
    Hey, honestly, I'm just looking to prove that an ordinary guy can do extraordinary things through will and bravery. That applies to all areas of life, not just martial arts.

    This whole project is dangerous. If I learned how to play chess for six months and then took on a chess expert, I wouldn't end up with a broken rib if I lost. But that's why I'm doing this. I want to prove that a lanky red-headed guy can do what most people will simply write off as crazy. Because anyone can do it - I'm just stepping up to the plate.

    (@0:37) So, is slapping someone in the man-boobs still considered a form of sexual assault?!

    I don't represent a style. To claim to be a "Wing Chun fighter" would be disrespectful to the art, seeing as I've only studied it six months. I'm simply using Wing Chun as a part of my game. I originally posted this thread in the Chinese section before someone moved it over here.

    And I welcome shots to the body. There's no chance in hell I'm getting stopped by a body shot.

    You know, you could wear headgear and a mouthpiece.

    Also, what was the point of your training montage video?

    It's not that they think it's crazy, they think it or anything done has to prove a point, and the point is, if you do it, you have to do it better or win, otherwise don't. Well that and the possibility of injury for some which needs to be avoided. I think it's great, the problem your going to find is respect from those willing to work with you on your challenges. See for them, it's a challenge that should be met with what they would consider to be "equal to the task or appropriate responsiveness". If they look at things from a time wise perspective, they might think that time spent would be better served learning in their class as opposed to an outright sparring exhibition. There's many people out there that are great to learn from... it's just going to hard to find them.

    Sure anyone can do anything, but in the end, the only person I believe you need to prove anything to is yourself. Thats all that matters.

    Please, let a boxing gym be the first one you "challenge".

    I genuinely hope you educate yourself. If you go into a thai , kyokushin or boxing gym, there is every chance you'll be stopped and seriously injured with a bodyshot.
