    Chunners - What do you think of this class

    Experienced Wing Chunners, what do you think of these videos?

    Looking for practical advice, my experience in WC is zero, these classes combine the WC element with Sanshou and attempt to make it more practical and realistic.

    It might help if you actually posted videos.


    ... just saying.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Yes, videos please because what you just said makes no sense.

    Asking for opinions on videos that are not posted is...illogical, Vulcan.

    Those videos show nothing concerning sanshou elements and practicality at all.

    Yes, they don't, that's what the website claimed. What do you think of the level of Wing Chun? Is it practical, or bastardised? My thought process is, if he is teaching good wing chun, backed by some elements of sanshou or any kickboxing - and he also has an intense pad work session - then the class sounds good for me to try out.

    However, if the Wing Chun is of low quality, there is not much point.

    Sanshou as a competition:

    YouTube - SANSHOU 2009 - 10th world wushu championship

    Sanshou training:
    YouTube - Wushu Tang Lang Ti Da Sanshou training

    None of these match the videos from that link. Yes, I can see the strikes and specific hand movements unique to mantis. I'd actually like to see more from the Tang Lang school. I like those drills especially, in a CMA context.

    Level of Wing Chun? You can't tell without a sparring video. All those videos are demos. You know, things that are choreographed to make you look good.

    Go see a class.

    I saw nothing different from every other wing chun group out there that is doing everything in their power to dance around actually sparring.

    This doesn't even seem to be a group which puts on the gloves and wails on each other. I have seem some Wing Chun you could fight with. This .... stuff ... doesn't seem to be it.

    Are there any vids I am missing that show live training and maybe some sort of full contact rule set?

    wait ... You can't say "practical or bastardized". Like one negates the other. The ONLY wing chun I have seen that was workable was considered "bastardized".
    My thought process is, if he is teaching good wing chun, backed by some elements of sanshou or any kickboxing - and he also has an intense pad work session - then the class sounds good for me to try out.
    Not bad logic man. Make sure they spar. They HAVE to spar under a fairly nonrestrictive rule set. Otherwise it is just some faith and ego driven horseshit. You have to actually use those techniques to defend against take downs and leg kicks and hooks.
    However, if the Wing Chun is of low quality, there is not much point.
    Depends on what you cansider quality and what your goals are.
