    Just to clarify I didn't say this was a good video just the best WC video I have seen yet.

    Chain punching is stil stupid, so are ey gouges and such however the clinching and elbows looks at least somethign you might see in a real fight

    and yes I know what real sparring looks like

    Here's an example :P

    I actually like chain punches in the fact that it teaches you the idea of "if you can get one punch in you can get six in". I've downloaded this video before and it's great and all for showing the martial arts but the guy in the video's an asshole, it's just him beating the **** out of his students for a good five minutes, not one of them put up a fight. That tells me one thing, most Wing Chun teachers can't teach for ****.

    Trust me, there are better follow ups than chainpunching.

    the quantity over quality aspect of chain punching (not to mention the gay factor) is what puts me off to them

    I like elbows.


    I still really want to see some guy using _ing _un in a real fight, going all out and kicking the **** out fo someone, not in the ring. That would be cool.

    I find it somewhat entertaining that in the single instance of wing chun fighters sparring/fighting non-cooperatively that anyone's managed to come up with, there's (as far as I can see) no examples of Tan sau, bong sau, fuk sao, bridging, chain punching, or indeed anything the Standard Wing Chun Posters on here tout as Wing Chun's specialties or strengths... and that it looks absolutely nothing like any of the Wing Chun demos posted.

    Come now. I know that crow doesn't go down easily, but you'll be a better man for finishing it. Orr explicitly identifies his game as being WC-based with wrestling for the ground.

    Oh, come on. Virtually *all* of them use chain punching. The only vid I saw that didn't feature it started with the clinch right away.

    Orr's video starts with him getting out of being backed up by using mid-level chain punches. Features a little bit of sticking hands, too, but it's not like you're going to see a lot of it if it doesn't come up. I'd be the first to agree that one of WC's faults is its specialty in a marginal element of fighting. But the videos do feature some distinctiveness, especially when it comes to the handwork when compared to a lot of MMA striking that tends to go for headhunting with big hands. A few pros do use a kind of walking straight blast, but it tends to be higher, like a V pointed at the head.

    Really though, your statement is another vaiation of wanting to make it look like a kung fu movie. Even though there are CMA exponents that have this mistaken idea, that's not how it works, even in the "traditional" sense. That most Wing Chun is taught and received at a very low level is not something I would dispute. Again, the question is whether, stripped of the cultural problems, the delivery system is effective.

    It's Dutch by the way, not German.
