    Wing Chun is effective at pushing bags? That'll be great for if I ever become a post man.

    So much wrong with this video.

    I don't think Xing Yi involves any candle training.

    Chunners prefer to show off their best tricks.

    You can learn to hit as hard as you want... Landing that shot in an altercation is another story..

    You can land as many chun punches as you want ... Your opponent walking through them and landing a decent shot is another story.

    WTF man...
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I've been knocked back by step-through chain punches from a xingyi guy. Seemed like something that shouldn't have worked.

    My JKD teacher is also a Chen Taiji guy. He's done a lot with structure as far as the chain punch that definitely gives the standard WC straight blast a bit of a internal flavor.

    I'm not a Chun hater, but I like to poke fun because they are always calling out other arts, particularly boxers and MMA. You'll notice Xing Yi, Hung Ga, Tai Chi people rarely do this out of RESPECT for boxing and MMA. Funny how that awareness thing works...some arts promote awareness, some muddle with it.

    Now, if there is one martial art that NO ONE should be claiming is susceptible to the classic Centerline Chun Assault, it is boxing. When I watch boxers, either on TV or in the gym, they are kings of damage control. They know they are going to get hit over and over, and their entire game is designed around enduring that (especially from head on...) in order to land their own blows.

    The average Chunner, on the other hand, seems to believe strongly that their Frontal Chun Assault is like a moving freight train burning nitro and it simply CANNOT be stopped...unless of course the opponent is another Chunner, then they clash and negate, releasing massive amounts of energy.
