Sorry, Blade. I can understand your perception of Grados being choppy. Again, just a counterbalance to the UFC vid. I don't have a "better" example prepared. In fact, my view is not a popular one amongst many Wing Chun stylists, since they view their art as complete, and an end unto itself. I tend to take a more holistic view, ala JKD... but I'm not saying JKD is "good" Wing Chun. Having studied WC and continuing to spar with WC folks, I am always happy with the close range hand skills, but I feel like the posture and movement is too unnatural to be very effective against skilled fighters from (some) other styles. I think too often WC practices fighting WC, and it shows.
Anyway, good night. I will waste my company's time tomorrow! :)

Yes, I agree with this 100%, was waiting for some one to agree with me on this. :)

Eh, I have roughly 6 pages of notes written on WC fighting. Two are just a diagram and list of places to strike on the centerline, and how to strike them. Two are just discussing dominant and dead angles. The last two are on aggression and sparring against non-WC practitioners.
Maybe I should post them.

I don't know, maybe it's arrogant of me to think I understand WC to such a degree.

That'd be cool, Stold2 (you're not the REAL Stold! Where is he? What have you done with him?! <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>). I'd be really interested in reading your thoughts on WC, particularly the angles stuff. I agree wholeheartedly that there are far too many WC practitioners who think the style is complete, and they need look no further. That and the politics are the two biggest problems with WC, IMO.

argh, now I'm emberassed. It's really just a bunch of principles and ideas to remember and practice from beginner to sifu. I guess I'll shop it up some and post it. The dominant angles part won't make sense withotu diagrams though.
