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

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

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