Why block when all your doing is irritating me? The Victor vs. Wanderlei match is a great example of chain punching applied properly. why can't WC learn something from this?
Good: Valid Trapping Techniques. Bad: Again, you barely even see them use this. I've seen Wing Chun trapping that makes most MT clinches look like a hug. But... Sticky hands are more important.
Thats just the tip of the ice-berg. As long as wing chun-ners decide to continue on their current path and allow WC to deteriorate the way it has been for the past few decades or so then fine... Your loss... not mine.
Good post Shard, agree w/ you here.
