    Did they train with a boxer or someone pretending to be a boxer and was it dead drills or practiced alive through sparring.

    I'm guessing it'll be no and no.

    I'd say there's a good chance you're right and right, I'm just saying that it just depends on how you train. I'd like to find some boxers and other martial artists in my area when I get better at the chun.

    It doesn't matter because it was a seminar. Also, how often do you train Judo to beat a chunner? I'm almost certain you just train techniques to learn and apply them.

    Before someone makes a correction, you go into training camp and develop a strategy to fight a specific person. You didn't hone your skills based on a specific fighting style.

    I understand all that, IiF, I'm just saying I wanna train with other styles to get a feel for them in case I decide to try and get into competitions.

    Let me know which one it is because first it was the only school that sparred and you liked WC because it looked effective at a seminar. Now, it is to help introduce you to new styles just in case you want to compete.



    Train what you want or like, but don't expect validation from many of the posters.

    Lol I'm not looking for validation, just an occasional answer to a martial arts question. I didn't say I wanted to practice WC because I saw a seminar on youtube, I was just saying that it could be effective against other styles if trained to be. The only validation I ever asked for was not for style of martial arts to take, but about the school I was looking at but that was a few weeks ago lol.

    how about this: it's ****, train something else. Get it out of your head that you're going to be the first guy to do something right in wing chun, and just spend your time on something better.

    there's at least one BJJ place in Ashville and another one in Waynesville.

    if you really want a "traditional" art go here

    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    Boxing is not a style. In fact, there are several different styles boxers use to gain an advantage.

    Do you know what style of boxing is similar to Wing Chun? Think square stance, moves forward, pressures.

    I am absolutely and completely ignorant of judo. When I think of judo I imagine ppl geeting thrown over shoulders all day. I've been given plenty of reasons why not to pursue chun but no reasons why I should pursue another specific art. Its not like I've seen many ppl using judo throws in ufc or other mma events, they mainly use takedowns from shoot wrestling...

    Judo is much appreciated because of it's training method, which includes lots of sparring.
    If you'd read more than just the chun threads - where everybody will be trolling btw -you'll see most people recommend competition sports:
    Judo, Boxing, Muay Thai, various types of Wrestling, BJJ, SAMBO etc.
    More and more Judo in MMA, but MMA's generally not fought with Gi's, so it's not always obvious.
