    Is Wing Chun/Tsun effective for self defense

    Hi All,

    I would like to ask people's views on whether Wing Chun/Tsun is effective for self defense.

    IMHO I believe it is. This is because I am a firm believer in simplicity when it comes to self defense and I believe Wing Chun/Tsun is one of simpler more direct martial arts.

    I will say I have never studied Wing Chun/Tsun and my opinions are based on what I have seen and read.

    Regards

    No experience.
    Sorry, not in the CMA fourm. There are at least, this not a joke, a hundred or more chun threads on bullshido.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there is closer to 500. Use the bullshido google
    search function.

    thank you.

      I think you're confusing "simplicity" with "sounding good on paper".

      edit: moved to newbietown while I was posting.
      Well, you'll find that in this forum, boxing is considered better suited to learning how to strike effectively, in a reasonable amount of time and training. While TW/WC/VT/etc is considered the exact opposite.

        OP, give boxing a try. Way cheaper, way more direct and way more effective.

          Creativo & BigKovacs,

          What about kickboxing as an effective art for striking?

            I think Wing Chun can be effective if it is trained correctly.

            Unfortunately that rarely happens.

            Very rarely.

              Kickboxing, though not the 'Cardio' kind, and Muay Thai are both considered effective striking options.
              I do not aspire to be great, or even good, I hope to suck a little less then last class.

                True. I got into an altercation on halloween & used some of the things I learned in class during it. Didn't think of it DURING but afterwords I realized I did.

                  When people try to use aerodynamic principles to explain why wing chun works while failing to provide any video evidence I don't think you can call it simple anymore

                  That said in most street fighting instance where the people fighting are generally drunk or pussies, chain punching them in the nose will probably work very well to deter them.

                    Aerodynamic principles?

                      Correct. Repeatedly punching someone in the face is generally considered an effective way to attack someone.:toothy5:

                          I would think that the most simple and direct form of fighting would be western boxing, 4 punches, and hundreds of drills. Some of the most impressive athletes that I have seen are boxers. Its direct and effective against multiple attackers. what more can you ask for.

                            Western boxing may be good for fighting, but it's too much fucking hard work.

                            Also, where's the mysticism? Where's the tiny Asian "master" screaming "YOU WRACK DISCIPRIN"? Where's the otaku wank off?

                            No no my friend, I'm afraid you don't understand martial arts at all.

                              Kids fighting backs when you try to steal their candy dosen't count as an effective use of chun.
