    Wait...horse bench?

    Sorry, I'm a blind noob. No, we don't use the horse bench. I don't know why I thought you were talking about the platform fighting.

    Sorry dude

    You claim to do wing chun, probably the style that stresses spazzing out and hammering forward with chainpunches as the primary response to any situation, and you say that your ATTACK is weak and your defense strong?

    You do some weird-ass wing chun.

    I imagine a lot of his experience involves two partner parrying drills with no actual intent on the part of the puncher to make contact with his partner's face.

    I guess that would build some ok reflexes for defense, but it's not as good as a boxing-for-mma elbows guard, especially because you're prone to falling prey to feints and leave yourself wide open.

    There's a reason why Boxing is the superior punching art: boxers punch each other constantly and know what works and what doesn't by direct, (excuse the pun) hands-on experience and direct risk of the consequences of them not training in the optimal techniques (getting KTFO'd). Most people who train at a less-than full contact school generally don't have to worry about this risk and can go home to their nice suburbanite life to fantasize about performing exotic looping blocks and meeting or redirecting every incoming punch in a flurry of arms.

    DG, make sure when you come in on Friday you show up early enough to do some focus mit work. Crawford will nail you in the head if your guard is down, or just crappy. I've gone home with imprints on my forehead of the laces on the mits. It's a humbling experience to be punched at will when you mistakenly think your defense is good.

    Can you come in on Friday morning, around 10?
    I got a ride and will be there friday at 10.

    Dude, if any Wing Chun fighter tried to blaze a trail towards me with chain punches, I'd murder him.

    Chain punches are supposed to be done as a counter in my opinion.

    My guards are good with WCF, but because of the nature of the school, I was only taught to counter attack. I have a way to attack, but that involves hand grappling which I'm tempted to keep training at the school just to learn his hand grappling system. Its effective for inclose fighting and trapping, but I don't want the rest of the style anymore.

    I'll bring my hand wraps then. Sounds like I might need them.

    Is this a real first post DG or were you being sarcastic? My sarcastron is busted right now...
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    Know where you're coming from. If it's like I'm imagining, you have problems getting your footwork ''on the move'', looking for openings or even how to get in his nose without getting hooked or crossed in the face. You might be able to get better at those things by practicing your footwork in a fluid manner along with your hand work. Worked for me.

    Ok, I'll make it to that one too then. I'm pretty damn miserable right now with the sunburn and all, but I'm taking vitamin E like gangbusters.

    Yeah, my footwork sucks. I nearly walked into a few of his punches. I'd like to think that I would've dodged them, but he was pulling his punches cause we don't have any gloves/pads.

    "Probably the style that stresses..."

    What does that exactly mean? Are you criticizing a style based on what you 'probably' think they do?

    with chainpunches as the primary response to any situation,
    Do you know this is how WC people fight...or is this another 'probably'?
