    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    OMFG, I actually met a non retarded Wing Chun guy:

    Actually this happened Thursday but I thought I'd share. Guy comes in, tells me he's been walking by my gym for awhile and saw that I taught Kung-fu. I told him all about it and he's like, well I've done Wing Chun and Lau Kune Do and a few other for years. Then he starts going on with the conversation on how he hates what Wing Chun has become after I comment on putting grappling into my kung-fu program.

    "Wing Chun was supposed to be this simple art to learn quickly so that people who didn't have a lot of time could learn something useful. Like Western Boxing, it only teaches one thing and the idea of it being all encompassing is ridiculous"

    I look at him and say "and you come from a traditional background!?"

    This guy is well into his 40's and he responds "yeah, but I also wrestled in high school and college and did boxing."


    Go figure guys, and no he's never heard of bullshido.

    Well I wanted to warn him about the Lau Kune Do but I let sleeping dogs lie on that one.

    Every rule has it's exception, I suppose.
    "Reason is a choice. Wishes and whims are not facts, nor are they a means to discovering them. Reason is our only way to grasping reality -- it's our basic tool of survival. We are free to evade the effort of thinking, to reject reason, but we are not free to avoid the penalty of the abyss we refuse to see."

    I know of one like that - the WC school he's from encourages students to cross-train in other arts, specially BJJ, you need to pressure test, and that people who know how to fight, a boxer for instance, won't chi sau in real life. He says the same regarding the bullshit in most WC; those type of chunners are few and far between.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
