    you cant ignore the FMAs quality of fighting. They do not show face in regular UFC or MMA fights. how ever, ppl like the DOG brothers do have full contact stick fights as competition. those arts remain true to their ideals and have yet to sell out as much as say wing chun has. but then again, look back to the history of all martial arts. they were all at one time effective for survival. i believe that modern society responsible for our beloved BULLSHIDO. most styles have sold out in one way or another, watered down their methods! BJJ would be even more effective if they trained to break the arm rather than for a tap. WC would be more effective if they actually hit people for real. karate TKD, TSD, if they didnt train for point sparring.

    i would say that boxing is the only sport i can think of that has not lost its original purpose. but boxers would get hurt to a skilled grappler, or any one that isolated low line kicks etc.

    the problem continues, are sport martial arts real martial arts????????????
    and have "real martial arts" fallen victim to excessive watering down, and bullshidoism.

    Not at all.
    I'm just disputing the argument that their stickfighting was somehow effective in war. That's all.

    But still, the best FMA I've seen is Dog Brothers, and those are IMR mostly westerners aren't they?

    See? I would argue with this. Blade arts and archery aside, I don't see how karate/tkd/kung fu/etc was necessary for survival. Unless you are talking time before blades were invented, like before Bronze age, but I'm afraid the only MA that reaches that far is neanderthal grappling (which I imagine would look very much like todays MMA).

    Ever heard of "tap or snap"? Tap means the arm is 1/2 inch away from being broken. By taping you are admitting that if you didn't tap your arm would be broken. Taping is the greatest invention in martial arts.

    I started a new thread with this question because I don't want this to be plagued with wing chun nay sayers (this is not abot WC), it is a question that I was interested in when reading through many of the other threads on bullshido of people defending the system that they train.

    but yes if you go to the ground then BJJ will help very much so. Remember I trained JJ for some time.
    I used to be an expensive male prostitute under the name "Siguerlo", which is about as relevant to BJJ as your JJ experience.

    But first of all lets say you are a woman in a vacant lot or maybe there are more than one attackers...then what? If you are pinned yes do what you got to, but wouldn't you rather to not get pinned! .
    ...Yes. You're right. BJJ consists mainly of grabbing onto your opponent's lapels and doing a baseball slide until you end up underneath side control.

    Let me ask you something, because i'm genuinely curious: You are aware that "pinned" and "not pinned" do not even begin to address the totality of positioning on the ground, right?

    Also, what exactly is a "finger to the back of the neck"? Serious, I can't think of any martial arts technique that fits that description...I can't even make a lame sexual anology because...well, it's just so outlandish.

    From the original post I have yet to see WCKF offer anything outstanding, some of it looks ok but I have never meet a WCKF person who has made me a believer, a few handy principals but that is it from my view.

    I've recently conducted a survey of Wing Chun styles as far as is possible to do from whats available on the net. I haven't seen much thats impressive at all. Most of the time Wing Chun people talk about things like centre-line theory but don't practice its application in fighting. Possibly the most obvious failure of the system are those Sifus out there that teach the legs spread-triangle stance... where the fighter is standing with legs splayed open, knees straight, and feet pointing straight forward. Niether leg is forward, as most styles of fighting from kickboxing to fencing would suggest is a good idea. They then like to lean back for some reason. These things are justified on the basis of some very dodgy ideas concerning close-range fighting.

    Of course there is a side-on stance in Wing Chun (from the Chum Kil form) but very few Wing Chun people focus on this. Rather they focus on chi-sau and drills from chi sau. This is done staticly, without movement, except for perhaps a kick in some of the most showy drills.

    Now I'm sure most of you are aware that a good counter against most hand-flashy stuff is to keep your 'dukes up'. Against most of the stuff I've seen the WC techniques can be countered simply by keeping your hands up and in front. In fact a very good counter to someone who decides to do 'rolling punches' at you is simply to punch hard and fast yourself. Another is just to block along the line of the rolling punches.

    Having said that I'm not paying out Wing Chun at all. Very few arts can beat a good 'dukes-up' with punching defence.

    My advice concerning Wing Chun (and most MA) is:
    1. you should try and be involved in sparring as much as possible. This might require you to improve your cardio-vascular health. Take up running or something lighter but try and make it so you can last through a good sparring session.
    2. sparring shouldn't be point based... rather get a few people you trust and try and have an anything goes but dont injure philosophy. It should be like a controlled brawl but fight using Wing Chun! If you can do this you'll at least have a good benchmark for figuring out what works for you (at this stage in training) and what might work in the future. Bear in mind you might get blood-noses, fat lips, black eyes, hyper extended limbs, bruises on your arms, guts and legs and so on a lot. But this is unfortunately the only way to learn to fight, and it will knock any flinch reflex you have out of you.
    3. Do weight-training for strength. This is different than mass-training (which is actually less time consuming and a little easier). The benefits are enormous and it will improve everything from punching power to coordination.
    4. Wing Chun is close range fighting... remember that when training and sparring. I consider it to be close to a form of upright-wrestling and boxing. Unfortunately most styles focus on flashy-rapid arm-strikes. If your club focuses mainly on drills where someone does X and then you do A-to-Z... and this is all the training you do, don't be upset when someone with a more focused fighting background takes you to the cleaners.

    I was just interested in some of the comments made.Someone says that wing chun guys dont hit each other?I heard a rumour that in lot of other country's (i live in south africa) that because of laws and fear of being sued there are very few full on contact MA left.I didnt think it was true because well there are lots of stuff on the net that proves otherwise.Stuff like ufc and other full contact fighing.But my point is here in my school we fight no gloves or pads just no strikes to the face or groin allowed at full strength.The rest is game.Senior students also fight with open handed gloves as in ufc en then anything is game.The other comment was the stance.The static triangle stance we do train a lot in,but only beginners mostly or when learning new techniques.We certainly dont fight out of it.For that we mostly use the arrow stepping stance and even though we do a lot of "static" chi-sao we also do full sparring a lot.We also train in JJ for ground fighting.Except for the ground fighting i assumed full contact fighting is wat most schools use,especially non sport schools.That is how it is with most schools over here.I used to think it was like that everywhere.Is this true?

    Your school may be an exception from the mainstream WC schools where:

    1.) you actually spar

    2.) you actually incorporate some other art to make up for a lack of groundfighting instead of having a sifu that, after watching the popularity of ufc type events, goes back to the forms and finds some move that he can BS into antigrapple and play off as if they always knew it was there.
