    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I've never heard of shifting, but I gather it's the technique WC uses to glance away from blows.

    I can describe a class:

    --form (five to seven minutes)
    --demonstration of a response to an attack
    --pair off and practice response
    --add a component to above, add gloves/protectors so that solid contact can be established
    --another demonstration, maybe stressing footwork
    --move along entire floor doing the footwork exercise
    --shadow your partner maintaining punches and good footwork.
    --conditioning component, chain punches while turning, bending, kicking, situps, pushups, jump up into chain punches.
    --stretching

    All the time the instructor moves about correcting form, re-demonstrating, etc.

    Perhaps you have heard of "shifting" as "sidling turn"?

    Wing chun like muay thai has its weaknesses. So does boxing. I guess thats why everyone is into MMA?
