Oh good god, not another "WE ALREADY DO TEH GRAPPLE" person.
Wing chun is a STANDUP ART. Do thai boxers claim "HEY WE DO TEH GRAPPLE IN MUAY THAI!"? NO.

Muay Thai absolutely does have Teh Grapple! It just doesn't have ground fighting. Get your terms straight!

The question should be does a wing chun practioner need to learn a ground art? That of course depends on how skilled you are at avoiding take downs and how skilled your opponent is at inflicting them upon you. In my experience, it's not that hard to stay on your feet against someone who doesnt know take downs but is trying to get you to the ground. However, against someone skilled in take downs........well that's another story! IMO, even though its probably not that likely your gonna come up against a skilled grappler in a street fight, I like the added security a bit of ground knowledge gives you.

See, all you have to do is take the WT principles and apply them to while on your back. If you are true to your lineage, this shouldn't be a problem and gives you the added advantage of adaptability. You can now defeat any grappler's limited range of gimmick "techniques".

Mr. Mc Fu
the styles you have listed are bjj and shooto.
do you practise wing chun as well
what came first?
I started w/Wing chun
and it did help me on the ground when i started bjj
but most bluebelts and all purples and up could still kick my ass

i take wing chun and just started bjj. wing chun that i took does try to add some grappling BUT, the emphasis is on try. none of the grappling taught is much more than sub wrestling type moves that are practiced unrealistically because class in on a hard wood floor. so, while it may be possible that some wing chun teachers add groundwork, it is my belief that this is an addition and not truly part of "wing chun" therefore i think it depends on what the guy adding it on knows and teaches. in my case at least, the wing chun grappling was not so good.
