    You meant LIMP noodle, right?
    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.


    - W.B. Yeats

    Actually, as long as their intent is to fight, I can see many of the attributes of WT being applicable to MMA. . .of course, how long will it stay wing chi=un, and not devolve into strictly MMA will be the test. If EB completely abandons his roots, and his fighters look like they came from SBG, or whatever, then you know WT doesn't work.

    I think the trapping experience can work in MMA/NHB as long as there is an urgency to it, and not a counter-attack waiting mentality.

    Most WC/WT/VT practicioners have a lot of untested theory as baggabe. . .find one that fights daily, using his training, and put that guy in the ring with some grappling skills.

    "It does not matter who the master is. It does not matter what the face looks like. The masters are of the Qimen school of qigong/meditation which is related to Zen. The master wears white robes, and the predecessor master wears bright gold robes. The qimen school travels the univers and is not restricted to what paradise they live in. It has many masters" -Serious Harm

    I find your lack of faith in Wing Chun based solely of the fact that it sucks.
    That's not fair.

    I'd be surprised if he fought in Pride/UFC. I don't think either organization has active fighters who are senior citizens.

    Much like a limP noodle, Wing Chun is something to be feared !
    WC done by out of shape people who don't spar regularly and hard is no worse than any other MA done by out of shape people who don't spar. I'd bet Boztepe against anybody the same size and age who'd been training at a Karate McDojo.

    Oi! We really respect Karate semi-contact arm-flappers here!

    Would you bet on Boztepe against an MMAist of comparable phyique?
