    Brisbane Wing Chun

    Hi All,

    I am interested in studying Wing Chun, and am wondering about the quality of Brisbane Wing Chun. I havent been able to find much about the instructor himself (Alfredo Del-Brocco) (apart from what was visible from a search on here!), however as I do not know allot about CMA, I was wondering if what their website preaches seems to reflect current CMA thinking or whether it seems like a waste of money.

    Eager to hear peoples thoughts

    Website is brisbanewingchun dot com(can't post links yet)

    To be honest I wanted something a little different (I know a lot of karate and taekwondo people), and my body wasn't holding up well to the falls in Judo.

    Sorry I thought that Sounded practical? Is it the style? Or the multiple opponents that make it bad?

    It's everything. Especially the non sports and anti grappling. Lurk more post less watch this

    Ask them if they spar. Based on their website I bet the answer will be no, it's too dangerous or they'll call chi sao or something like that sparring.

    You say you did judo right? Just think how much harder it is to do a throw in randori compared to nage or uchi komi. Now think how much of a killer you'd think you are if you never did randori.

    What are you looking for now, as your bidy wasn't holding up?

    Something a little more sticking based I think. I still enjoy the groundwork in Judo, but the falls were taking a toll on my body as I have poor core strength ATM.

    I did a few lessons of Doce Pares Eskrima which I enjoyed, however found it hard to train by myself between classes, and the rate that they introduced new concepts (upto 6 new disarms and locks per week) affected my retention of what I learnt. I am very much a fan of doing a little but doing it well rather than allot poorly.

    You will do poorly anywhere at first. Beginners generally struggle, regardless of what it is they're attempting to learn.
