They don't do any anti-grappling, they do catch wrestling. And the instructor has them run and lift weights. Good for them I say.

Their list of fighters have a lot of draws on their records, no mention of where they actually fought, and odd-sounding rules (no mention of grappling) for the bouts they fought in.

Claims to have trained catch wrestling under Matt Furey, which isn't a good sign.

Better attitude towards training than most Wing Chun places, so kudos for that.

There are videos on the site in the 'movie downloads' section which show them in competition.

The videos were pretty decent. Didn't look like Wing Chun though.

Wing Chun works if you crosstrain in other systems and don't use wing chun.

You obviously haven't seen my hamster on the mook jong.

Can't see the vids.

They got alot of draws and only two wins. But at least their stepping up. Good on them.

Try using VLC (I'm running Linux and the program I used isn't available on windows).

my mistake they have 7 wins in NHB (one guy has 2 another has 5) and 13 draws.

catch wrestling for the most part sucks anyway, associating yourself with Matt Furey - ultra sucks

I guess you could say that it is cool that they do MMA but I am willing to bet when they do MMA, they use MMA techniques, not WT techs. I WANT TO SEE SOMEONE REPRESENT THEIR STYLE WELL DAMIT!!

That's a good thing

Well, the fact that they even do anything remotely close to MMA says a lot more for them than 95% of all other WC.
