    Kung Fu,

    Where is this school? I currently have a low opinion of the chun but I must admit I was absolutely fascinated by chun when I first got interested in martial arts. Who is this instructor? We really want to know. And...video!

    I thought it was pretty cool too. I did get a 'nugget' from a couple of friends that trained Wing Chun. They always wanted to cross-train, so I learned beginner stuff from beginners.
    The Chi Sao (they just called it "sticky hands" drills) helped me with my touch-based ranging and trapping. I always enjoyed watching them work out at speed, but it is what it is.

    So at your Chunnery, students can learn to fight AND eat through a straw at the same time!

    That is the most hardcore Chun I've ever heard of. It puts other Chun to shame.

    Seriously though....

    many people are afraid to do it
    A big part of martial arts training is learning to not being afraid of hand to hand combat, so why are so many people at your school afraid to spar, and is the instructor "OK" with that?

    These are the same "I want to train MA for self defense but I will freeze like a deer in headlights in the moment I need my training the most" people that give MA a bad name. They want to take the martial out of martial arts.

    You want to know what ruined "teh r45l" Wing Chun?

    Those people...the Chunnercisers. And your school is apparently full of them by your own admission.

    That's a dig at anyone saying his explanation is to hardcore. If you are pissing blood, you aren't going moderate contact. If you are sparring while getting cracked ribs, stitches, and pissing blood you aren't going moderate contact.

    Yes, I noticed the subtle backtrack.
    we don't force anyone to play rough, many people are afraid to do it or just aren' interested. Only the ones who really want to learn to fight play that rough.
    It isn't a regular practice. Yes, my mcdojo had a group of hard sparring students as well. They ae not indicative of the style or the school as a whole.

    Kung-fu in the '70s? Anyone else hear a disco flashback in their heads?

    I thought Wang Chun was the real Wing Chun in the 70s.
