    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Am I just being naive?

    So for past couple weeks I've been watching the hell out of youtube videos of martial arts that I want to take. Then checking google to try find out the history and philosophy of each.Simple thing, I'm lost. I started up with Wing Chun (a favorite of most here, I've noticed) but then I left for school. I enjoyed the short time while I was there. My one brother studied Wing Chun for awhile and my other brother studied JJ for awhile. Both have had their share of scuffles and both have won a fair share. So would I be naive in thinking that I can cross train in Wing Chun and somthing like Judo or BJJ? I feel like that would a well rounded fighter. Is this a dangerous assumption? Some places say they influences in both like a stand up approach in Wing Chun and ground tatics like BJJ or or even Sambo, what can I assume from the term, "influenced"?

    Wing Chun is useless as a fighting system. Pick something else for striking.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    If you're looking to be well rounded, forget about cross training, might as well cut out the middleman and do MMA.

    Only start mixing and matching if you can't find a good MMA place IMO.

    Try WC and underwater basket weaving. I hear people with this combo are tearing up the MMA amateur circuit.

    ...and the two arts just compliment each other so well.

    Join a MMA gym. If u wanna mix and match have a grappling art and a striking art. Shop around try some arts here and there and see what works for YOU. Most people here who have tried wing chun here found it ineffective. However you might find it useful. Try it and come up with ur OWN conclusion.


    P.S.
    I'm in a habit of not criticizing an art as a whole specially one that I havent tried. But I am not impressed by the youtube vids of Chunners.

    Judo.

    Don't mess with "influenced by." That means, they watched a YouTube video and now they think they can teach.

    Seriously. Judo.

    No wang chun please. Just think of the state of the forums with another born-again wanger explaining the real meaning of chi-sau.

    Is this a troll? If not, OP, this should be in guantanamo or newbietown. (i assume)

    Anyway, As you may have noticed in the last few posts WC is not well loved by many here. Not a good track record with chunners on the site, or in general. Visit the chinese style forum to find out more about why. I used to practice Kung Fu (I have since moved towns and therefore schools) and my only problem there was there was no real sparring to speak of, alot of forms and partner drills and conditioning- but i had fun there.

    I would suggest reading some threads in different style forums and seeing what options you have.

    ...and the two arts just compliment each other so well.
    Lol....

    Underwater basket weaving... genius, i'm off to find the nearest school right now!!
