    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Wing Chun

    So... I met a dude I used to go with high school with this weekend, Him and his brother have apparently beeing doing some Wing Chun for some time now. Well his brother at least. So we get to talking about MA's and they invite me to come down and check things out... maybe do a little sparring on Wednesday. I figured you CMAers might now what I should expect when I head down.

    There were no heated words or death match challenges, just more of a curiosity on my part to see what else is out there. I doubt I'd drop my current training, but if it's cool, I might stop by once a month to cross hands with these guys. (Best part is, they're training in a park... so I'm gonna feel like a jack ass.

    Any comments?

    Guard your eyes, groin, and kneecaps.

    If they train hard, and have a good teacher, you may find it harder than expected to take them down (note i did not say that's it's impossible due to anti grapple or other wizardry). You may find they have a very strong grip and are overall stronger than they look. Possibly very fast hands w/some power behind them, probably no kicks above the waist, maybe even some elbows thrown in for good measure.

    If they train in a decent way they are going to have good combinations, but probably not so good in the clinch/grappling range and unless they train with different foot work they may take a very heavy footed approach.

    Cool. I should be heading out there tonight and I'll post about my experiences. I have a feeling I'm in for a night of talking about Dragon Ball Z and Bruce Lee, but hopefully I'll find a diamond in the rough and a couple new sparring partners...

    you'll find they likely have really hard forearms...keep some range...and use feints....
    If they're protecting their center line...kick them in the thighs...if you're sparring with freedom then don't play the game they most likely train for....circle, and kick the legs...set it up with jabs and feints, don't be afraid to be rangy...might help. (no guarantee though, my guitarist stephen thunder came from wc to san da...and he can kick my ass casually).

    I started training with Chickenbeakfist in a park, and we see a group of preying mantis stylist training. One of these days, we might see if they spar. Mantis is one of the CMA stylesthat I've seen used very effectively without entirely turning it in to kickboxing- there's a couple stylized things that are kind of neat.
