    First, please let me say following:
    :sad3: :5headache :5squeeze:

    And also this:
    :knob: :sleepy2:

    And of course this:
    :violent1:

    But what can I do? :eusa_pray or :spanky: ?




    I have a suggestion: any _ing __un thread that reaches 5 pages should be automatically trollshidowned.

    ROFL. William Cheung as the "current inherited grand master of the system"... what a load. Perhaps you might say he is the self-appointed leader of the Yip Man Wing Chun style.

    Yip Man has been attributed with simplifying Wing Chun, and William Cheung is also attributed with simplifying Wing Chun still further. It is hard to say now whether they teach something that is similar to what might have been taught a few generations ago.

    Perhaps you should look around a little and see that Wing Chun as a style is far more diverse than what many sad clubs know -- you wouldn't know this based on the fact that 99.9% of Wing Chun people do crap Wing Chun from this one lineage.

    A good start might be to look at www.wingchunkuen.com

    Re: what do you guys think of wing chun

    I think it's a great art with alot of history, however it became americanized and commercialized and its no longer what it was.

    Nice necro moron.

    Didn't you notice that this thread was over 6 years old. No one gives a **** about what you think of _ing __un.

    Read more and post less.

    I appreciate the necro for this quote alone. Describes my entire game really.

    I think it depends on how someone trains. I study WC. I'd like to think that how we train is important. 2 vs 1, 3 vs 1, 4 vs 1, 5 vs 1 scenarios where we have to protect someone next to us while people come at us. We wear protective gear through class, shin guards, mouth guards, box. To apply what we learn as effective as possible without hospitalising someone.
