I looked at the guy's YouTube account and he has a few more instructional videos up.
I think this is where he is talking about what Dagon is saying:
Chi Sao / Striking Wedge
YouTube - chisao - striking / wedge
And of course the application drills video:
Wing Chun - Application
YouTube - wing chun - application
What I found really interesting is the comments field. Someone asked this:

Maybe that's what Bruce Lee saw in it and took with him to form his JKD concepts. He seemed to keep that part at least.

He is in the same chun organisation I used to be in, does not like sparring and talks lots.

This guy seems like a better sort than most WC types I've seen on the internet. Still, doubt I'd be signing up any time soon."[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

Wing Chun is the ultimate art... for impressing newbs that don't know how to fight.

Lets face it, to the untrained eye, boxing is kind of fucking ugly.

I've always been taught chain punches as a means to setting up something with more power. Even if that is just a straight right or left. Or as a distraction to get the guy to raise his hands so that you can strike the body or shoot a leg.
Few people that I have met have the power to actually knock someone out with a chain punch...and I personally have only used them in three punch combos. I did get lucky once and knock a guy out with the first punch of what was going to be a 3-punch combo...but I had every once of body weight (225lbs) in that **** and wouldn't count on it.

So one of the big tragedies here, and something we see a lot of, is that people with no real technical skill but a lot of forward aggression end up winning fights and thinking what they do works fantastically. This is especially a problem with wing chun people who've sparred or done some low level amateur fight.
