    wing chun vs tong long

    I've been considering adding either wing chun or tong long to my training regime. Whilst it would be mainly for speed / drills / reflexes / coordination purposes, I would still like whichever choice I made to have some sort of street applicability.

    Comments? Advice?

    Now I know it ultimately depends on the school and their training methods, but just as an art, which one in your opinion / experience is more street applicable?

    Cheers

    Wing Chun sucks. Just read what the average wing chun praciticioner writes and you'll see why you should stay the fuck away from it.

    Just start training Muay Thai.
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    "Step away," I hissed.

          I am growing more and more convinced that wing chun was actually created as a practical joke which has since gone out of control.

                            Better techniques.

                              1. Mantis actually teaches footwork and kicks.
                              2. Mantis also incorporates sweeps and throws.
                              3. mantis incorporates movements from several styles like monkey and tiger.

                              The only reason (in my opinion) that Wing Chun is still so popular is because it's the martial art that Bruce Lee originally studied.
