    OK. I thought any definition of Ving Tsun would include more theory.

    How does your description square with the 'soft' stuff?

    Kinda verbosa, but there ya go.
    Not bad. But a little long. Can it be compressed further?

    A short description out of my own brain: Quick and direct, cutting out the crap. Simple stand up with no frills.
    Wigginton's stuff: Tactics and the use of deadly force to help the person commit suicide and applied to armed/unarmed fighting skills.

    Bujinkan: The refinement of body dynamics applied to Ju Jutsu weapons and striking skills.

    Sho Ran Ryu: Breaking the other persons bones with high impact explosive strikes in rapid succession (as opposed to with one strike).
    Gojujitsu

    Using strikes and kicks to close the distance so you can throw someone and be on top to submit, strike or get away.
    GoJo-Ryu Karate-Do

    Rapid close-quarter stand-up, characterised by alternating softness and hardness, circularity and linearity.
    Martial Tai Chi: A sorta mix of boxing and wrestling with a few simple kicks and lotsa odd but difficult chinese callisthenics and a few forms. Does alright in San Shou if you train hard enough.
    Threads of this kind always devolve into TMAists frantically beating off as they type things like EMPHASIZES THE PRINCIPLE OF ALWAYS ATTACKING and V. NASTY STUFF with possible awkward weaponry or military based metaphors. Then someone interjects with LOL GLOCK-FU or NIKE-JUTSU just before frantically digging around under their computer desk because they thought they saw a gummi bear down there.

    The purpose of the thread is to be concise and clear, without the usual fluffery. My assumption is that this will enable posters to gain a more lucid sense of their own art (which might be crap).

    Your post might be right (we'll see), but ultimately it's not very helpful (which is in character, at least).

    Before painting everyone with the same broad brush why don't you ask about the descriptions? I think the one you quoted me on for Wigginton's stuff does bear an explanation. Here it is: A lot of the practice revolves around taking a knife or gun and turning it on the guy... part of the practice is not getting your finger prints on the weapon so it looks like he used his weapon on himself. Hence, to all practical purposes if done right it looks like a suicide.

    Now maybe you feel like that is unattainable but that is another issue. My point is that I used that description for that reason not to sound hyperbolic. I am sure others have reasons why they describe their arts as they do.

    Taijutsu: depending on the school it can either be very good or pretty bad, but its creative, effective and can be very sneaky.

    Grappling: great way to beat the crap out of someone without punching, kicking or trash talking the person.
