    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    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:

    I'd actually like to see that as most _ing _un instructors I have seen putting videos up don't!

    The reason I seem to like the Chun is when I watch the trapping or blocking techniques they apply it really leaves the opponent open for some takedowns or combos, even if the chun sticks to its fairly straightforward moves. 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.

    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.

    Seriously, there is a lot that is correct with this statement.

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

    But that lolTKD/_ing _un/ninjutsu demonstration with the lunge punching and ****, thats cool as **** looking.

Spar with a boxer who throws combos, and when he hits you once you'll notice how hard it is not to get hit by the next 3.

    I really think chain punches are more of a distraction technique rather than what you are explaining above, but you might be right...or maybe we both are?

    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.

    If you've ever had any exposure at all to amateur kickboxing you'd know that pretty much all the most successful newbie fighters (or at least really really low level ones) use this awesome strategy of charging forward with punches (may they be straight or just any random sloppy punch thrown in high volume). It works fantastically against people who are completely unused to dealing with aggression and persistence.

    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.
