    Dude's got some mad chum kiu skillz.

    Chum at dictionary.com:

    –noun
    1. cut or ground bait dumped into the water to attract fish to the area where one is fishing.
    2. fish refuse or scraps discarded by a cannery.
    –verb (used without object)
    3. to fish by attracting fish by dumping cut or ground bait into the water.
    –verb (used with object)
    4. to dump chum into (a body of water) so as to attract fish.
    5. to lure (fish) with chum: They chummed the fish with hamburger.
    Seems like a fitting name for the wing chun.

    And that is why I still love karate, despite it being a clash with wing chun

    I think you are imagining a wing chun hit done from a small distance. This was a circle step drill involving a lot of torque and built up power. As I said, I would rather take a hit from my old kyokishinkai instructor than Kevin Chan. That is just personal opinion and has probably more to do with the person than the art.

As soon as a fight starts, the off-hand shoulder pulls forward, the main-hand pulls back, and the hands come up to block the face when not punching. Even without training, most Jersey kids will try and emulate what they've seen in boxing.
    Almost every fight I have had starts with the whol 'wide boy position' which is a punk spreading his hands outstretched, clashing chests with you etc. They tend to always leave the centre line open. Fights in the street never start with someone coming up to you and going straight into a martial arts stance! (Well I have never seen it so far)
    My advice for people is to try and get hold of CCTV footage outside clubs or fooball hooligan fights. I watch it everyday and it is amazing to see that even people with martial arts training tend to never use it in a fight!!
    But as you say, different cultures/countries have different fights

This sort of motion in the head is best protected along the centerline, and least protected at the temples.
    I'll concede this definatley. But remember that if you changed angles, you would be striking the temple whilst still attacking the centre line!
    Quote Originally Posted by Kung-Fu Joe

    I don't agree that the most damage can be done down this line - people have mentioned the arteries which if hit can cause problems, or the kidneys. But they are fairly hard to hit.

    The nature of chain punching (linear movement) means that is pretty rubbish in a spar
    The fact that you are charging forward with a flurry of attacks is a gamble and most of the time useless. For me, chain punching is more about exercise (training hand/arm speed and stance). When Kamon do use chain punching, they are more controlled bursts of three perhaps four punches. If you develop a hard hit (or weigh more like me) then you can use these in ground and pound and they tend to be fairly effective

    It makes absolute sense that training that sort of sensitivity would help in grappling of all sorts.

    Exactly. I'm not suggesting that you should take up wing chun just to help your BJJ, but one of the gifts from this art is a degree of sensitivity and ability to move round hands

    I understand wing chun is getting a bad rep on here and that's a shame.
    Elements of wing chun are crap, that's a fact of life, but I could pick apart any art practised in this age.

    The lack of videos of wing chun in action doesn't help, but I would say to people on here - get down to a wing chun class and watch.

    I still go to different martial arts in London and watch styles. Some are dreadful and some are fantastic. There shouldn't be a 'that art is rubbish' or 'that art is good' category.

    Nothing wrong with people making fun of an art. Some of the stances in wing chun look hilarious. What I am saying is that you can have a rubbish BJJ practitioner, but it doesn't mean that BJJ is rubbish.

    Kevin Chan as a wing chun fighter is certainly not crap and that has been backed up countless times (just look at our website under 'testimonials')

    And there are more wing chunners who are very good. All I am asking is that when people post something about wing chun, don't automatically assume it is crap.

    I don't think people who hold the above view on any style have been made fun of enough yet.

    Please give them a number and send them to me.

    Correction. They don't look hillarious, they are hillarious. And it isn't just some of the stances, it's all of the stances.

    What I am saying is that you can have a rubbish BJJ practitioner, but it doesn't mean that BJJ is rubbish.
    If the overwhelming bulk of BJJ practitioners were rubbish, then yes that would mean that BJJ is rubbish. But that isn't true. BJJ is immersed in the culture of performance. It's a legitimate and established sport that requires the **** to actually work. You can't even remotely compare it to the culture of wing chum.

    Kevin Chan as a wing chun fighter is certainly not crap and that has been backed up countless times (just look at our website under 'testimonials')
    Please read my testimonials:

    "Virus pretty much always says things that are true. I don't think he's ever been wrong."

    - Some guy.

    "He's a pretty awesome fighter as well. He taught me the real street deadly that has helped me in countless situations."

    - Some guy I met at a bus stop.

    "He has a real time machine. He doesn't tell many people about it but he went back in time once and took a peek at the real shaolin monks training. He said kung fu used to suck back then as well."

    - Some guy that I showed my time machine too.

    "He has magic powers."

    - Some guy who was talking about someone else, but could easily have been talking about me.

    And there are more wing chunners who are very good. All I am asking is that when people post something about wing chun, don't automatically assume it is crap.
    It's just that almost every chunner that appears on video is crap.

    Oh the centreline's open? great. Their chin's also open for a hook, and they can be dumped on their heads promptly. But that would be too easy wouldn't it? you have to deliver the 350lb chainpunch of death.
    My advice for people is to try and get hold of CCTV footage outside clubs or fooball hooligan fights. I watch it everyday and it is amazing to see that even people with martial arts training tend to never use it in a fight!!
    You are one of those people it would seem.
    But as you say, different cultures/countries have different fights
    Ah I get it. chainpunches of doom only work in the UK. I must get back to the chun!
    If you develop a hard hit (or weigh more like me) then you can use these in ground and pound and they tend to be fairly effective
    It has been established through the Empirical Method what punches are effective in GnP, and chainpunches are not it.

    Exactly. I'm not suggesting that you should take up wing chun just to help your BJJ, but one of the gifts from this art is a degree of sensitivity and ability to move round hands
    You should not take up Wing Chun for any reason.

    I understand wing chun is getting a bad rep on here and that's a shame.
    On the contrary, it gets exactly what it deserves, and it is just. Please not that the most vocal critics of the chun are all ex-chunners. No they did not do the wrong wing chun, and I know you just thought that. Please replace that thought with this one: "I am a mug and I must quit wing chun immediately"


    The lack of videos of wing chun in action doesn't help, but I would say to people on here - get down to a wing chun class and watch.
    I've seen a Kevin Chan demo in chiswick. Looked like the same old wing chun bollocks to me. "Do you see what's occurring?"
