    Wing Chun vs Goju Ryu karate

    I am striving to decide which of these 2 styles to take. I have seen a lot of you guys dont like wing chun but i was wondering which of these 2 styles would be the better to take? What are some of the pro's and con's of each style?

    These are the 2 schools in my area that i can study at. Im just not sure which one to get started in.

    Are they the ONLY two schools in your area? I studied Goju Ryu for years, then found myself in a fight having no idea what to do and stopped. May have been a **** teacher, but in my experience, Goju is useless.

    Wing Chun sucks, everyone on here will agree, well, 99%.

    Have you tried to find a boxing gym? or a judo club?

    Links. Your location. Your schedule. These are things that would help us help you.

    Or, alternatively, stalk and kill you. But we wouldn't do that, and it's kind of a dick thing to even say.

    Personally I like Wing Chun.....

    BUT you will probably get no sparring experience and alot of 'well if so and so does this then do that' BS

    Also beware the dreaded 'well he wouldnt take me down' bollocks.....

    On the plus side it teaches you relaxation in confrontation (if you train SLT properly) good initial entry techniques and intial postional advantages.

    Can we merge this thread with Questions about wing chun - No BS MMA and Martial Arts ?

    Same OP, same question, one with the variable of Goju.

    There's a Korean movie called Oldboy...

    Watch it and train like the main character did. You could potentially be better off.

    Why dont you take a trial lesson at each and decide. I still say this its not so much the style as it is the the instructor and the school.

    see what the schools offer and decide

    And dont listen to Wing Chun sucks or Goju Sucks bullshit. You decide
    Move along citizen ,nothing to see here !!!!!

    If either school spars, go there. No sparring, don't go. Find a boxing gym.
