    Wing Chun Footwork

    I spar in my Shidokan(FC Karate) class with a lot of guys that crosstrain in WC. Everytime I fight them I can easily defeat them with footwork. Circling and stepping up with good blocks totally interupts the flow of what they are trying. Basically I want to hear thoughts on why WC footwork is so linear. And what do you do when going forward isn't working.

    I would love to spar a WC/VT/whatever practitioner. A lot of the things I hear about their footwork and fighting strategy makes absolutely no sense to me, and I would like to test these things out for myself. Any chance of one of the WC guys coming to LA in December?
    You say what about my rice?

    The same Gym as I do it's in my profile. The instructor changed the name to Chinese boxing, not entirely sure why. but he is from Philadelphia Wing Chun club and was briefly assocuiated with Francis Fong.

    Garrick is the Wing Chun instructor:

    Ahh...another wing chun thread where nobody knows **** about wing chun.


    As for wing chun footwork being linear...how do you move when you take a single step??? In a circle?

    Why do people think wing chun fighters only go forward?

    wing chun footwork actually varies a whole lot depending upon the lineage. bruce lee altered his footwork to be alot more like boxing.

    Ahh...another post where Amp adds nothing to the discussion.

    Why don't you enlighten us about WC?

    Why do Wing Chun fighters never answer questions?

    Traditional WC footwork can leave you vulnerable to many things, specially if fighting a bigger guy and doesn't allow for full displacement of your body weight behind a strike as well as other types of footwork.

    Do you know how many threads we've had here on Bullshido about "why wing chun sucks"?

    Why don't you actually pose a question and this wing chun fighter will try to answer it.

    Are these your questions?

    "Basically I want to hear thoughts on why WC footwork is so linear"

    "And what do you do when going forward isn't working."


    Here's the answers...

    1. It's not.

    2. Don't go forward.
