    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Is Kung Fu effective?

    I've read tons of forums and comments saying that kung fu is not effective at all. Is this true? I'm talking about traditional kung fu, and currently have two schools I'm interested in. One is Tai Shin Mun/Da Sheng Meng aka Monkey style kung fu, and one is Seven star praying mantis kung fu. Thank you.

    I've heard good things about Seven Star Preying Mantis. Does the school near you spar regularly?

    With effective I mean, I can use it for self defence, and it can compete against any other art. And I only have these two, because they are the only traditional styles near me.

    This is what I would have to ask. I would answer, it depends. I have seen some lame-ass kung fu and some all-in, hard sparring, full-contact CMA **** that would make kyokushin practitioners say 'too rough for me'.

    Oh. Yes, as a Kung fu practitioner that's just ignorant talk.


    Aside from that it's what Slamdunc said. In the end it depends upon the instructor and the school.

    Kung fu is only effective if it's kung fu.
