when i trained wing chun they said we were training our sensitivity and reflexes and ability to control our bodies and minds

is this something that could help in a fight?

i like the whole romantic aspect of kung fu and karate but is it really frivolous towards real fighting?

what does wing chun train the practicioner to do?

cant sparring out of the school or kwoon help to see how it all relates?

or is jui jitsu, judo and bjj or muay thai the only way to go?

You just thanked a bot.

Although, judging from your first post, you yourself might be one.

I suggest you spend some time reading stuff on this site, then try asking again. Good luck.

And welcome.

You mean punctuation.
No, it really wouldn't.

If you really like kung fu, learn San Shou.

YouTube - Sanshou Sanda kung fu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdXorYzyObQ)

Most wing chun theories make as much sense as a football bat. San Da would be a good way to go for you.

Kung-fu sucks. Everybody that practices kung-fu should be castrated. Especially Wing Chun.

Wrong.

Most wing chun theories are sound, realistic and aiming at effective fighting applications.

It's the actual application of the theories where most wing chunners fail miserably.

If you really like kung fu, learn a kickboxing ruleset with a chinese name

Exactly.
