    Why does eveyone hate wing tsun?

    It seems that there are a lot haters when it comes to wing tsun. Why is there so much animosity towards this art?

    You have gotta be fucking kidding me....it took me a while but now I see why you all hate it when people don't use the search function and ask the same questions over and over again near verbatim.

    Despite my shock that you'd ask this question without searching for the 8 billion other threads where this has been answered I will humor you...

    a) It's a theory that has been proven to be inferior to simpler more effective theories, ie: Boxing

    b) Slap fighting is gay

    c) Chunners coined the term anti-grappling

    Wink, wink

    KF, I believe you're forbidden, by law, to list BJJ and crappling in your style field at the same time.

    Nice article on the analysis of Kempo BTW.

    Jesus everyone is SO anti-_ing _un that no one has yet to understand what the question is! (this assumes the poster was bright enough to realize that wing tsun is not wing chung which is not ving wing wang wong, etc, etc)

    WT is hated within the _ing _un community because it is by far the most commercialized of all the variations. In fact it exists solely to be commercial, supports intentionally lengthy training with strict contracts, and is all about the business and has nothing to do with the art.

    It all comes down to Leung Ting and his greed. My sifu's sifu (when I actually was a _ing _un victim) was Leung Ting's top student for many years, and even he turned away from him after seeing the light (although i'm not sure why it took so long). Leung Ting also had a bad habit (according to students) of teaching people incorrectly if he did not feel they were worthwhile, even though his primary concern was (and is) profit - which even further castrates the art.
