    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Can someone explain to me Wing Chun applications?

    Long time lurker here. I'm getting into BJJ school soon and thought this would be the perfect place to be in if I've got any questions. You guys are awesome.

    Anyway, on to the topic.

    I have heard someone saying that when using the Wing Chun dummy it would be quite different when it is applied in real life. He said that "In a fight you won't step to the side". Now I understand the whole rooting aspect of Wing Chun but how do these guys actually move about? Stepping to the side is EXTREMELY important in dodging punches/kicks.

    Can you guys help with explaining this? And maybe some basic Wing Chun info? You seem to be quite unbiased in regards to styles.

    No, it doesn't make sense.
    It will never makes sense cause "triangles and speed > force and complete system has magical arm punch power, boxing wrong, chinese nuns"

    I doubt it. There are tons of threads on the topic.

    I would like to think so. Just search for wing chun here on Bullshido.


    ... and if any of the above seems like nonsensical word salad ... I assure you it is only because you haven't read enough W*ng Ch*n threads.

    ...also this was moved from the Basic Techniques forum.

    Because as a "long time lurker" you should know to use the search function.

    Wing Chun theory only makes sense if you really, really want it to. In attempting to apply Ving Tsun in an actual 'street situation', it will only work under two circumstances:

    1. Your opponent MUST be compliant. AND
    2. You MUST yell 'FOOM' as you block and strike.

    Keep in mind, if you do apply Wing Tsun techniques in 'street situation', you can only use about 10% power because (IN THEORY) it can be th3 d3ad1y. There are numerous threads _ing __un throughout Bullshido. If you use the search function, they will appear (almost as if by magic).

    Couldn't find anything about the side stepping/evading. But okay.

    There are tons of other threads where their footwork and general theories on movement are brought up and discussed. You said you were a long time lurker. Wing Chun movement and footwork has been beat to death.













    TLDR;
    Wing Chun is weak sauce unless you add kickboxing and grappling.
    The best part of the best W.C. systems are chainpunching and aggression.
    You can learn that in a weekend.

    That "someone" you heard is wrong. Of course there are side steps in wing chun.
