I have been debating with this guy about wing chun and why it's dumb but it seems like what ever I say goes out through his other ear. Then he keeps saying "stop watching youtube videos, thats not real wing chun"
I ask him what is real wing chun and he says "I dont have to prove anything to you", I'm trying to save his guy's martial arts life but he just doesnt get it. after a while during one of my comments I tell him that Wing Chun is useless and then he calls me disrespectfull.

After that he asks me to challenge his "Master Fong" (60 years old) right after he told me I'm disrespectfull, (he avoids Sparring). how do you Convince a chunner? what do you do to convince a chunner?

I was trying to spread the word of the real martial arts -.-
and not only that, friend or foe I have met many chunners like this. I was wondering how to convince a chunner. and I just added my own " wow chunner" story.

Spend your effort talking to people who want to listen. Wasting your time on one guy who doesn't won't do you any good.

GOOOD FOR YEEEEEW

THANK YEEEEEW

How about you spar with him? And if your reply to that is "But this whole conversation is occuring via youtube comments" what I need you to do is throw the computer in the bathtub.

If you do have a friend that does wing chun and you're interested in his martial arts career the first thing I would reccomend is show some genuine interest in what he does. When you ask him what real wing chun is don't immediatly say let's spar. Ask him to show you a technique. And then slowly say but what if I threw a combination. Or what if I ducked under and and went for a throw. Make him see the flaws in his system (if there are any) but in doing it this way he will start to value your opinion becasue he will see you are willing to give him some credibility until that is proven false. Rther than stating it's fals until proven true. If a BJJ guy I just met laughs and says i need to quit kung fu cause its carp I'm not gonna care. If one of my freinds in BJJ says they think a technique in kung fu I use might not be as effective as I thought it would I eould take this into serious consideration becasue I respect and value thier opinion.

By simply saying that wing chun sux or is useless it is disrepectfull. How would you feel if he came up to you and said judo is useless cause it's only a sport and you don't hit anyone. You would most likely feel he was disrepectfull. So of course the approach you took was not effective. If you ever do find yourself personal freinds with a chunner I would advise you to remember this advice and simply be nice and show some willingness to view it with an open mind. Don't jump right into sparring becasue most kung fu guys will take this as a death fight and are conditioned to believe that sparring is dangerous and nothing good can come from it. I have converted 2 wing chun students I work with in my school to sparring by slowly introducing them to it and letting them see the leaps and bounds it improves thier reaction and fighting skills.

that's my ramblings. Feel free to take it or leave it, but I think that will help you out.

You would grab a collar tie or his shirt and do this.
