Style: Kung Fu
Lets put aside for a moment why people do wing chun, the fact is they do knowingly and willingly, thus forming a very idiosyncratic martial arts community of their own which would be great to see in full contact competition, only right now their options seem to be limited at two extremes: playing chisao in their kwoon and going and training/fighting in a completely alien environment which is oriented to and dominated by other styles. Wing chun competition would provide a base where fighters could become accustomed to harder combat (and different techniques are allowed, just in very limited numbers from what I read) and then move upwards into less restricted rulesets, something which right now there is NO incentive for them to do whatsoever.

I like the guys thinking... lets apply WT in both full and light contact competitions so that more people will push themselves to be able to use WT in a realistic scenario (also hold up against full contact fighters who keep owning them).
There have been times I myself (being in a traditional style) have wanted to do some sort of "our style's techniques only" sparring. The fact is though that it would be really hard to do that. It would be ten times harder to base a circut around that idea. The rules need heavy revision (and grammar check).

I think that this is a great idea. The guy has identified some of the problems with WT and come up with a possible solution. If the rules were tidied up a bit, this could be very useful.
BTW, what are the cervicals?

I think the rules are still provisional as Antonio has only just published them for discussion.

I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
"Step away," I hissed.

Style: San shou(tai chi) +judo
Personaly I think that boxers using a both arms to absorb a cross is a good use of centre line theory.
It would be easier to fight under san shou/thai boxing/MMA rules, to make the event only open to wingchun practioners with sufficent experience and to allow the judges to give discretionary points for conformity to style.

This is a good start.
Best of luck.
Some of the rules do not make sense: no side guard? Let the guard develop to suit the attacks!
No non-WT techniques? You'll have trouble justifying this, and pple will claim that in THEIR WT there's double-legs and armbars. You'll have no way to control this unless you want to limit the participation significantly to only your clan.
But as I said: good start
