    True, but why waste that kind of time and money training to fight if you are not learning to fight?

    My point is that in my experiences wing chun that works in real fights is simple and subtle. If you were looking for it you'd see it, but it doesn't look like a guy standing with his chin out in a pigeon-toed stance with his hands out in front of his chest in guard.

    SouthPaw: In other words you've taken some WC principles and applied them yes?

    I'm not having a go at you, I've just seen a few WC spar and what not, and sparred with a couple and they all seem to have that weird stance and weird punching method.

    There's a Senior Brown Belt in my class who's a damn good fighter, when in close he uses some WC principles with his punching to make a gap and setup his kicks (which hurt a lot). When he actually punches to stop / hurt someone though, it's entirely not WC, not to mention his kicks aren't anything like them.

    You know what else is possible?

    1) I write this post.
    2) You read this post.
    3) You have a seizure and choke on your own tongue and die.

    Better stop reading now...

    Yes. Exactly. That's all. Does that not count as wing chun working in application?

    So what you're saying is there are some functioning infighting concepts in Chun, but the stances, punches and kicks are useless?

    Look...we are back to the question as to when I have to stop calling what I do wing chun.

    I don't teach people wing chun, and when I spar we don't call out styles beforehand, so I don't know what the name of the way I fight is.

    My point is that what works in a real fight doesn't have to be "subtle."

    It what works is "subtle" why waste time on it because fights generally aren't a "subtle" thing.

    So, some folks cross train, and use a bit of the chun here and there to set up stuff.

    Cool. But does the chun stand alone as a good combart art? Can someone train chun and chun alone and reguarly use it to whoop some ass? If so, can someone please post a video of it? And not some fucking lame ass demo. A fight. Ring, street, whatever.

    I would love to see that freaky ass looking **** work, even just once.

    Thanks in advance,
