Largest of the Large Wing Chun groups weak? Isn't that Bozepth roots?

Love it when families quarrel,the truth sneaks out.

No, seriously Neko - the proof is in the pudding. I'm not going to say that LT's style is completely ineffective, but they do dwell heavily on narrowing 'real' fighting skills down to chain punching and charging the center line.
My GF watched the show with me because she likes fight quest and said 'wow, your school spars WAY better than them'. And truth be told she thinks all martial arts are kind of lame.

Families nothing. I've fought WT guys. They're very intimidating, but if your bridge seeking skills and footwork are sound you can turn the fight back on them easily. At least the beginners and intermediates anyway, which is who I could only assume Doug and Jimmy were fighting.
Wonder what would have happened if they knocked on Edmund Fong's door?

If anyone's interested, I'm gonna start a Fight Quest wing chun thread. Everyone weigh in!

So? Madoff was one of the largest hedge funds doesn't mean he was anything more than a con man does it. Being large speaks to marketing skills not Wing Chun knowledge or skill.

Yup so what?

Not a quarrel at all speaking truth as I see it from my pov. Others will see things from their pov and might disagree. I suspect the only disagreement would cme from Leung Ting wingchunners. However no doubt others would be far more diplomatic than I am.

Don Chi Sau, you seem like a really cool person. I wish I could chi sao with you. I wish I had friends that did wing chun so I had someone to chi sao with and not have a monthly fee.

Hi SifuHax,

Why not train some people you know? Within a few months, you can have some people at your chi sao level, then you can take it from there as a group

I actually just need to experience the martial arts society more intuitively. I'm pretty much new to the whole thing. I started about 8 months ago learning from a friend who was learning. I'm more into the music realm of art but have always loved the martial arts. I moved away from my good friend and have only been able to take two lessons which were four months ago. There's a Fut Sao seminar on April 4th in PA. I'm hoping to hit that up.
