    I was disappointed that of all the dojos I invited to join (10 in all) only the one's I listed.
    One thing I'd like to see more of all around in any clips is an an indication of how long the students have been around.

    No, but I also wasn't the one complaining about it.

    The preponderance of evidence is that Wing Chun sucks. If someone is interested in claiming otherwise, I would say the burden of proof is on them, not us. People claiming Wing Chun sucks can point to an awful lot of video that supports their point very easily. Until people claiming Wing Chun is good and useful can point to ANY video supporting their point, I suggest they forego argument.

    As "evidence," actually means "stuff on the internet," in most discussions here, my point stands. I have mixed feelings about Wing Chun after meeting practitioners, but that's not really transferrable to broad discussion.

    I can find positive examples of other arts on the internet. Is wing chun just unable to use a computer?

    You're apparently unable to use BS' search engines to find things relevant to discussion. The other thread clearly showed that. Your choice of samples isn't really their problem then, is it?

    ...we still haven't seen Wing Chun in action that even remotely resembles the Wing Chun taught in the forms, much less Wing Chun being used successfully as a striking art against a credible kickboxer/Muay Thai guy?

    Seriously, all we're getting is choreographed bullshit and chunners fighting other chunners or using BJJ and calling it Wing Chun.

    Yes yes, Phrost, I'm well aware of the amazing goalpost-switching, criteria-stacking saga this has become as you do, in fact, find credible clips. I remember lurking around and reading about how WC needed examples of live training to be taken seriously. Once that came out, you wanted examples of WC winning. Now that you've posted an example of *that* on your own front page you want:

    ...we still haven't seen Wing Chun in action that even remotely resembles the Wing Chun taught in the forms
    ,

    I understand that your definition of CMA is "stuff from a kung fu movie" and thus, not really worth taking seriously.

    much less Wing Chun being used successfully as a striking art against a credible kickboxer/Muay Thai guy?
    I love the "credible" dodge, since that caveat is never applied on the numerous occasions when, say, somebody uses BJJ or Muay Thai against an obvious tomato can here. In fact, you archive those vids for the sake nutriding triumphalism. Well -- you don't archive the ones that challenge that POV, I see . . .

    Anyway:

    http://www.alanorr.com/htdocs/images...s%20clips.html

    shows that you haven't been looking very hard, have you?

    Seriously, all we're getting is choreographed bullshit
    Sure. It's a legitimate problem with the art.

    and chunners fighting other chunners or using BJJ and calling it Wing Chun.
    Oh yeah, the one armbar = BJJ again. You're a very silly man.

    This **** always boils down to the same thing: Bad analysis that fails to distinguish between the validity of the delivery system and the culture of the art. But unless there is a meeting point for people to train at and record how the delivery system works in a culture of live training, it's hard to tell which is which.
