    You're missing something important, and we're only at the second sentence of this post. Yes, in the street there are no rules (ignoring the law for the moment). However, in training there are rules. And WC's training rules tend to be a hell of a lot more restrictive than those of arts that spar full contact on a frequent basis. It comes down to how well your training approximates a real fight; and a boxing sparring drill is much closer to this than the two-step "sparring" of a great many other martial arts.

    Plenty of the people who damn WC as useless here have spent years training it. You're assuming it's being condemned from ignorance. In many cases, it's not.

    Also, given a damn small percentage of WC fighters actually spar meaningfully inside their art, there aren't many with the stones to step up and spar with people from outside their art. Those which have usually have failed to impress. Those very few who impressed somewhat did not impress at such a level as to validate the whole art. Search, damn you. Search.

    Well, we don't get many rabid braindead karate nutriders on this board. The wing chun morons who occasionally infest this forum all seem to think that wing chun is the best fighting method ever, far superior to anything else, with no shred of evidence to back it up. We ask them for evidence time and again, and they come back with bluster. This breeds a certain vitriolic hatred of the pests, and I've gone over the space of several months posting here from caring very little about wing chun and knowing very little about it to sharing the forum view that "Wing Chun is a disease that destroys rational thought."

    Stop treating it like a fucking religion. If you want to change people's minds, upload some video of good WC sparring (persuade the best WCers you know to go at it) and turn up to a Throwdown and kick ass. If you can't or won't do either, shut the **** up and **** off, because we've heard it all before.

    ronen_y, we do not ALL hate wing chun here (though I am a dirty newb like you, so my word will mean jack ****). wing chun was the first MA i ever trained in, and i still love it, but primarily for exercise/health reasons. i still do the lohan from shaolin every morning, but i would never really on that **** to protect myself in a real confrontation. WC may be effective in sparring with other WC partners, but i would never palmstrike in a real fight, would you? boxing, bjj, judo, etc. are simply more applicable to "real situations," which is probably why a lot of people here diss it so bad. i love WC to this day, but i can understand why people would not take it seriously as a method of self-defense, as it is too impractical for that.

    oh ya, whoever told you to search was right, i have been reading threads with merciless WC disses for the past few days. the dissing... it hurts me lol

    don't look at it as a "methood of self defence". Technique is the less important thing. Improving skills to react quickly and effectivly is the important part of WC.
    For you who diss chi sau - It's a TRANING system! you don't use it in a fight! You use the skills you achived from it in a fight
    And no, It's not the best MA, cause there is no such thing. But it is for sure not the worst

    What is it then, if it's not a method of self defense? A sport? Oh no not even that, because sports fighters wouldn't know how to defend themselves, but then the argument goes full cirlce doesn't it because you said
    'Hi everyone
    Why so many of u hate WC so much?
    This is one of the most effective, great MAs!
    Any good reason?'

    My question is, effective for what: improving skills and reacting quickly and effectively to what and effective in order to do what? (you can react effectively if you are trained to react accordingly)
    If you say WC is 'not a method of self defense', I would rather take rather take 100mtr sprint as an art of self-preservance, it also helps you to react quickly and appropriatly to a life threatening situation.
