Thread: Honestly Where's Rudy Abel now ?

Having spent two years in the Chun I feel compelled to comment.
The statement that only a handful of any instructors in a particular art are somehow teaching the real art or teaching it correctly, immediately raises the spector of another stupid lineage war. For those who followed the whole "traditional wing chun, verses modified wing chun, verses Emin Boztepe" its tiresome and proves nothing.
Is the Wing Chun you do modified in such a manner to be different then any of the main schools of Chun (for example Moy Yat's lineage ect) If you can't explain how it's different and compensates for WC's usual vunerabilities, you are left with the argument that its not the art but all the other instructors who are defective or pussies etc. I don't know how one knows only three WC instructors are doing it correctly in California under the defective argument unless you went and visited a large sample of the other instructors.
That leaves you with the first argument. So please put up some links to some videos that would show this different version of the art. For all the protests to the contrary, WC looks very much alike unless like Bruce Lee, one changes the footwork, and then the style evolves into something different.

i've said it before in other threads, but i can't say it enough; so, i'll repeat it here.
my best friend in high school was a die hard chunner and a nidan in TKD. working with him for a year in MA training, i picked up a lot of chunnery and VASTLY improved my TKD point sparring. however, that is the only aspect of MA that i have seen any benefit from with _ing_un. i have been told by others who are more experienced than me, that chunners have an easier transition into grip fighting in judo than others do, but i have no first hand knowledge of that.
kick boxing, boxing, judo, bjj, and MMA classes have all shown me over and over and over again, that the **** that i did to win point sparring matches in TKD (including my borrowed chun) sucks big hairy doberman testicles in the world of full contact, hand to hand combat.

Talking and theorizing:
1:00 minute in and he finally throws a slow punch.
I went for the first teaching video that came up for "Right jab."
15 seconds in and the slow teaching punch is already thrown.
Nope, the closeness in times isn't on purpose.

I wanna train with these guys, even though one looks like Paul Simon, and the other looks like Sid Vicious. D3adly.
For such a **** session, the guy had this in the description:
It's too ****, so I spoiler
