    Absolutely. I forgot there were a couple people on here that knew Pedro.

    So Wing Chun is the equal of BJJ for grappling and Muay Thai for clinchwork...all you have to do is add BJJ and Muay Thai to the Chun.

    Fair enough, but by the same argument, you can get excellent grappling and clinch fighting in tennis.

    Yep, notice how he backed off that chun exclusivity real quick.

    That's kind of unfortunate. It had all the makings of a truly glorious Chun thread.

    You have video of that? Of someone employing it against someone who isn't a Wing Chun stylist?

    EDIT: And that's what I get for posting without finishing reading the thread.

    It's good to know that training Wing Chun will give me a complete system on par with BJJ at grappling - if I cross train BJJ. Bold claim.

    Chunners bring it on themselves, if they didn't make so many claims of the chun being so awesome, they wouldn't catch so much flak.

    Chun's a desert fire,
    Bullshido is the rhino,
    stomping and smashing.

    If you idiots would quit flashing your dicks all over the web these threads would never occur.

    Oh and remember, he doesn't train with F. Fong. He trains with Larry Rice. The guy with the two students who looked like beginning strikers. He then adds that the video has harder sparring than what he usually does at Rice's school.

    That's the part people keep skipping over in his three posts.

    Our Aikido has excellent grappling work too.

    The secret is to turn up on Thursday's. Also, make sure you go downstairs instead of upstairs. It's taught by different people, and that section of the aikido curriculum is called judo.


    When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!
