Where in central FL are you? I'm from good ol' Tampa, but living in Pensacola now. I hope to move back down to central Fl soon.

Hey welcome to bullshido, the greatest martial arts site on the internet, where the combat is real, measured, and peer reviewed. When I first came to this site, I had some very different ideas than the ideas that I have today. Exposure to my peers and superiors globally through the use of this site enabled me to garner a more complete perspective on my training practices than I had previously held, and many users might say the same thing about their own experiences.

Enjoy your stay, may it be long and constructive.

PS: DO read the stickies. They are informative, insightful, and worthy of your attention.

Hello, welcome to BS.
Colin already said most of the important stuff, and I recommend you follow his advice - specifically regarding reading the stickies.

Also, I was curious, does your school of Wing-Chun spar?

No my sifu doesnt promote sparring. However a couple of the students have traveled to other schools to do so.

If you have to travel to another school to spar, something is wrong with your instructor.

How so? Other students just like to practice with people using different styles.

We do alot of wrist to wrist/sticky hands...some students spar against others for fun. But not at the school

Okay, see this is why people are saying you need to find a new school.

1)Sticky hand is drilling not sparring.
2)If you or your fellow students haven't sparred, in class, with a competent instructor you are learning nothing.
3) That was a Yes or no question. I tend to worry when a long explanation involves anything but, different levels.
