It what works is "subtle" why waste time on it because fights generally aren't a "subtle" thing.
I can't really argue with any of the above...just passing along what I have observed.

I can't answer this but can say that I have never used it "alone" except in drills in class.
Can someone train chun and chun alone and regularly use it to whoop some ass?
I don't know. Not me. I need the help of everything I can get.

If your not being a smart ass, I have to agree. While serving in Okinawa in the early 80,s one of my fellow Marines was a Wing Chun practioner, 8 years he bosted at the time.
While in a bar fight with some of the other service men I witnessed him in action, he closed the distance and in a simple flurry of upper hand movements knocked out the first challenger with a flurry of short distances close range combos. The second followed close behind.
Although I would have used a more direct approach such as a hook to the temple or shin kick to the chops, he was beyond a doubt extremly effective.
