    Noobs troll the chun

    Hi There

    I am a Chunner and agree with the majority sentiment in this thread. I am no Chun expert by any means but I have trained Chun in the UK, Singapore and HK and people do spar, but not in a conventional sense. I am talking about Chi Sau and it can get very physical. Because you are not using any protective gear you do have to exercise a lot of control. I have had a few badly controlled chops to the neck and throat before now (for example) and it is unpleasant to say the least. Having said that no worse than an over enthusiastic arm bar in a BJJ class. A lot of Chun schools, especially in HK where I am now, discourage any moves that can easily cause injury. So not much elbow stuff or kicking to the knees etc. I guess it relates to a fear of litigation or being presented with medical bills. Also classes in HK seem to be a lot less structured than they could be so it is the lazy option to omit the stuff that needs close supervision.

    All the best

    Ok, so now lets compare that to actually getting punched in muay thai and kickboxing for the past 6 years, actually getting thrown in Judo and actually having the tendons in my knee torn by an over excited polish bouncer in a BJJ class.

    Go fuck yourself.

      Chi Sau is not sparring. It leads to terrible bullshit like this:

        Hi Juggernoob,

        Yes, thats the thing, it does not compare to getting hit in the head or thrown regularly. I have ended up on this forum because I am trying to find my way and work out what I need to be doing, or at least to know that what I am doing is worthwhile in the context of being effective in an unscripted situation.

        My work does not let me see pic and vids in the links so I will have to check out the above when back at home.

        Tks for the input guys.........

          So according to the first video, in competition Wing Chun, you play pattycake while you throw knees to the body?

          ???

            No foot to the boys...he was beggin for it, in that second vid.

            @ berni, welcome to Bullshido. It's nice to have you, consider an introduction in newbietown. Not required, but it's a loving place. Click on the spoiler at the bottom of my signature for helpful advice for Bullshido beginners.

            As for your goals to improve your chun, if you're aiming to take it into any highly alive setting, wearing pads is a great idea. To practice something hard enough to actually hurt someone, without hurting training partners, requires padding, unless everything gets pulled, but in that case, how can anyone attain the muscle memory, to do it all out, on demand?

            Also, losing the triangle stance is key, in my opinion. Most people don't stand like that, when really pressured, so why train like anyone would? Were they to, tackling is quite possibly imminent, and no elbow to the spine is likely to change that. That or the knee/foot/fist to the boys.

            I got shin kicked in the temple (not d3adly...ha!) grappling Strikestanian (another poster/ammy mma fighter) fairly recently. We weren't even throwing hands, or striking at all....but I got a nice bubble-welt, for a few days. We kept going after a moment, and he continued to school-wtf-pwn me into a sub. Good Tymes.
            shit (injuries) happen(s)

            @IIF, that 2nd vid failed so hard, the lights went off in my room. It looks fun, but wtf for martial? more like marital.

                  Jesus H Christ, what's wrong with you man? FFS just park somewhere else, you live in a terrible neighborhood! I'm just glad that all of the car thieves are so easily killed/knocked out with a mixture of manners and foom foom foom.

                      Hi

                      Some of those vids are really quite funny, but I would say that the guys and girl doing the Chi Sau competition stuff are at least putting themselves out there and having a go.

                      As for the two Chunners doing the demos yes, it is pretty unrealistic, but they are trying to get a message across. Personally I would say that both guys are skilful and can in all probability fight pretty hard for real if they had to. I wish I was as fast.

                      As an aside, I did actually train for one of those Chi Sau competitions once although I did not end up competing. The training was good fun and much more realistic than a lot that goes on at WC school so it probably should be encouraged.

                      And on the triangle stance, that is a training stance, most chunners will have one foot forwards with either 50/50 weight distribution or a bit more on the back foot. Some a lot more on the back foot.

                      All the best

                        Nope, this logic has helped to stigmatize Chinese Martial Arts.

                        Learning how to spar and fight wrong is incorrect no matter how much fun it is and it should not be encouraged.

                              Oh my, just shut the fuck up already. They are not giving it a go. Wing Chun is fucking retarded and encourages behaviour contrary to human self defense instincts , let alone martial arts that have actually been proven to work.
