I'm bored. Does anyone have and killer vids on Kung Fu dominating in a real style fight? UFC vids would be the dopest.

Often times when I'm fighting street thugs and I'm losing, using TKD or karate, I simply switch to kung-fu and completely destroy a whole group of people.

There's some really good Wing Chun in this clip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4N4aGMDOXQ

It is very hard to find any wushu in UFC type fights. Why is that? I feel that the art I'm studying from the way my sifus teach would completely dominate in the ring. Why isn't kung fu very prominent or popular in mma.

Here's a fun one to watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSiRoUt2huA&feature=related

I think this is my favourite one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlRPDhuX1DY

Yes, it would completely dominate!! That's why ALL the ufc champions are well versed in wushu kung-fu. They just keep it a secret because they hold your sifu so near and dear. Wushu is their base art, but don't tell anybody.

OR!!!!

You are quite deluded if you don't believe a pure wushu stylist would be completely destroyed inside the first minute by your average mma guy.

Hax -

The majority of wushu that I have seen is practiced for form, and the sparring they do is generally not MMA-style. If you haven't done MMA-type sparring, it may be difficult to understand why single styles don't work very well against MMA - but they don't.

If you watched the Jason Delucia vids, he got pwned by Royce Gracie. Twice. You have to train for all ranges!

Kung fu just isn't for sport fighting. It's not even very good for street fighting/SD, unless you're very good at it, which takes years - which most people don't put in.
YouTube is a hotbed of mediocrity at best, so I wouldn't go looking for too much quality there. There is some, but there's so much crap you can't be too sure what you're looking at if you're inexperienced. Plus, you have to deal with a lot of uninformed/stupid opinions that may subtly affect your judgement of a style, performance, demo or fight.
Don't worry about kung fu 'pwning it'. If the style is right for you and you get what you need from it, keep it up. If you spend your time worrying about the credibility of your school, style etc. you're probably in the wrong place.
If you need to feel tough, just go box with someone. Nothing like a few shots to the dome to get your ego in the right place
But seriously man, don't concern yourself with finding evidence that 'kung fu works' or 'rules' or 'kicks a$$'. It only does if you do.
