However, Most Wing Tsun does not look like boxing when used in a fighting situation.
However people have to modify theyre WingTsun because there are many rules to consider. (which change according to the competeition-as im sure you well know)
Not all chunners say or do this but, many do.
When the Chinese signed over control of their country, after the boxer rebellion, were martial arts prohibited? I have read they were banned from all "anti-foreign" activities and groups...was this when the Chinese opera "carried the thing"?
I don't know, just asking.
