The history of ANY art is only made important by those trying to make themselves more than they are.
No one really cares that much about the history of their art or anothers art.
Deep down it's all about how effective it is.
And Wing Chun is one of the most effective arts in teaching you have to fight "up close and personal".
As for who is the grandmaster of this and that, who gives a ****?
But if you start making outrageous claims about your skills, you SHOULD back them up.
The old time masters that everyone likes to talk about , backed up with they believed, so should the current stock of "grandmasters".

wingchun_diver I don't know where you come from lineage wise. But the petty politics HAS given Wing Chun a bad name.

And.....Osiris is correct.

I HATE politics in the Martial Arts !!!!!!
If one thing is unbecoming to a warrior, its bitching about lineage !!!!!!!!!!!

And what exactly do you find to be a lie? You are making a very general and broad statement about Sigung Cheung. Could you be more specific in your accusations? Also, are you a Tsing follower?

I wonder why WC/WT/VT/VC/whatever tends to attract people with such attitude problems? Amazing, but more than half the practitioners I have any contact with are fucking arrogant assholes bitching about lineages and traditions.

Im pretty sure it was directed at everyone.

This really doesn't need to be talked about anymore.
Everybody just shut up.

In that case.
In the spirit of all those who think the same way:

With Da Moose.

I don't have much love for Chueng, for personal reasons, but this really is just flame bait.
