WHAT A IGNORANT STATEMENT. WITH FAJINGS AND DIMMAKS IT IS OPSSIBLE TO BEAT MANY PEOPLE AT A TIME ULIKE WITH OTHER FIGHTING TYPES.




oh yeah?
well sometimes when im fighting a whole group of street thugs with knives I just take my blindfold off and completely destroy them

if you have a chance to, I'd HIGHLY recommend it. Nothing can replace having an experienced person guide you in your movements.

and if you don't have an instructor..then where are you learning your stuff from? youtube?

I had instructors. I train what they taught everyday. And of course it's to be recommended to have an experienced person guiding and supervising. Wing Chun lessons aren't cheap nor are they close to the area I'm in. I take lessons when I can and I practice them till the next time I can go to class. It saves money and I get to really practice what's gone over in class.

1. You need to get into a place where you can study on a regular basis. There's no excuse for saying "I sucked because I thought it was better to go to training once every 5 month." If WC is too expensive, go for judo, jujutsu, boxing, whatever. When you start to limit yourself, then that is the day you've made Bruce turn in his grave.

its cool that you practice at home, not everyone does that. But you also need your practice to be supervised too. Sometimes I might think that I'm doing a technique correctly only to find out that I needed it to be tweaked or changed.

and I'd have to agree with Taison a little. Practice your WC at home but if you want to be better overall as a fighter and martial artist, get yourself to a local school to supplement your home training. Pick up karate or something and practice your WC on the side.

ShikataGaNai is right. Kung Fu was developed long before MMA existed. The reasons for it's birth came at a time when the world was a different place.

MMA has become a quick and easy way to make a quick buck displaying the "glamor" of fighting, while skimming off the philosophy and honor that came with its origins.

Jumping in a cage and brawling someone isn't true Martial Arts in my book.

Don't get me wrong, it takes quite a bit of dedication and effort to make a career out of it. But in my opinion, it lacks what make The Arts so amazing to other people that don't do it for an MMA career.

I give credits to anyone involved in any Art, even MMA.

But, I'm not always on board with how it is displayed.

I feel that watching MMA gives kids a someone tainted view of what Martial Arts really is.
