    Some good Wing Chun

    I was looking around the web for clips of decent wing chun and I found this. Tell me what you think. I personally think it is ok, nothing really wrong with it.

    PS can anyone tell me where JFS went? I need to talk to him. Anyone have contact details?

    He hangs out over at truth martial arts.org

    What exactly about these videos did you consider 'good'?

    Condition people to avoid clinching at close range so that they can play an amusing game of slap boxing?

    I gotta say those were about as bad as everything else thats been shown thus far...
    these were like watching aikido demos. first of all, on the 6th video there was no follow up whatsoever to blocked strikes and very few combinations. Avid, dedicated strikers do not fight like this, they are not compliant.

    And look I know, you're going to say: "Hey, they're just demonstrating their techniques." The problem is that most people take issue with the techniques in light of probable better techniques and training methods, so the whole point of this god awful, shitty, endless debate with wing chun is to show your techniques in an applicable, non controlled, resistant environment.

    I don't understand what part of it was considered good? No one fights like that (cept _ing _un) and if ever forced in real situation like that, in that close range...clinch, elbow/knee, or takedown would be better choice than anything demonstrated in the vid.

    At the same time, even if it wasn't real situation and just a spar...why in the world with dude who's that much taller and have that much reach over short dude have to go at it from that close of range? Tall dude should've moved out of short dude's reach (which looked like not much from vid) and done his slap techniques.

    Yes this is what wing chun is all about. It is focused on the arm bridge and that is what they were training. Clinching is discouraged within wing chun..for clinching these guys train the thai clinch.

    So where's their thai clinch vs. trapping vid? I think we'd all find it educational.

    Once you are in a clinch you are no longer able to use arm bridging techniques and should instead focus on clinch techniques. I would have thought this was obvious?

    This means that a thai clinch vs "trapping" contest is physically impossible. Way to build a straw man.
