    Wing Chun Opinions

    What is you guys opinion of wing chun as an art for street fighting. I told them I was going to visit a wing chun club in another forum and they went on a wing chun bashing rampage. There seems to be disagreement in the martial arts community on the effectiveness on wing chun.

    If I was going to fight a street, I would probably want something like a jack-hammer.

    As for wing chun, it's held in even lower regard here than on MAP, so take that for what it's worth.

    Consensus = Wing Chun is a street fail.

    Who is disagreeing about it? About 95% of the posts here indicate that it doesn't work on the street or on the mat AND since the reason most of us train is to be proficient in either one or both of these environments, that means it isn't of much use.

    Do you troll much elsewhere or just here???

    I wasn't talking about just here. I was referring to articles I've read and research I've done on the internet. And I am new here so, I have no idea what 95 percent of the posts indicate.

    Nobody "bashed" Wing Chun technique in those threads. Just the same old sport vs street and "is this instructor legit", and "please educate me on the realities of 'Wing Chun combat' versus the sales pitch".

    I'd like MrHiggins to get on with picking something to train in, and stop with the fishing expeditions until then.

    Once he has some real experience (in anything) we can actually have a productive dialog about gung fu.

    I really am thrilled he didn't join the Dillman school.

    Progress is progress.

    You don't have to "avoid" it. Just be realistic about it.

    The more Wing Chun guys like Izzo meet up with others outside their style, the better. But don't make the mistake of thinking like them (often out loud and on camera): they are often deluded and trying to be be White Knights of the Chun while stepping on their own left feet.

    You have to understand that watching Izzo's videos are not a validation of Chun. They are Izzo's journey through Chun. Meeting a JKD instructor of Singh's quality was a watershed moment for Izzo. I am not surprised that Auslander was involved.

    I hope it all leads to less driving while recording videos, and (god willing) far fewer Chun videos than his current volume (~10 a month). He needs to chill out with the "Chun vs" videos because by my count he's produced more of those than anyone else, ever.

    Good luck with your search.

    Izzo is a fucking idiot, and to use him as anything other than verification of the rubbishness of the chun is a poor idea. i got into a "debate" (if you can call it that since his replies to anything are always one line about how real he is) with him about his "how to overwhelm a boxer with punches" vid on how appallingly shite it is, but how he could quite easily throw in a mouthguard and chuck some mma gloves on. but like 99% of chunners, he wont, because then the illusion he has built up would crumple faster than his chin.

    vid for anyone who wants a laugh-
