    After a while you start to see the similarities between arts ... and realize that (good) live instruction in an art that's not your first choice is better than video instruction in an art that was your first choice.

    ... within reason, of course. They're not all exactly the same, but (good) live beats video.

    Xue Sheng is completely correct. The devil is in the details, and you cannot learn the details without a competent instructor.
    Find a school in your area. Train hard.

    You could maybe try advertising in whatever local rag or mag you have to hand. It is possible there maybe a qualified Sifu that does not teach commercially anymore, or at all to the public. You never know.

    Don't rule out traveling. Some of us have traveled extensive distances to learn WC. I'd say it would be better to travel and learn from a competent Situ (if even occasionally) than to try to do it alone.
    Secondly, where in the world are you? A lot of Situ's operate "under the radar" teaching privately... someone on here may know of a source near you.

    southwest Virginia. and I did find someone about twenty miles away that says he can teach wc but when I looked at his rankings in different arts I didn't see any in wc. He did have a rank in jkd however. would jkd transfer over to wc to a level where he could teach wc while only knowing jkd?

    Traditional Chinese martial arts, which includes Wing Chun, has no ranks.

    As for JKD compared to Wing Chun, they are not the same, close, but not the same and that is because the root of JKD is Wing Chun. My short time in JKD made me look at it as Wing Chun on Steroids.

    So it's Wing Chun with anger management issues and a small penis?

    Well I don't know about the small penis bits (although I get the steroid connection there) but I suppose it could be said it had anger management issues

    I've just often found "folk sayings" to make no sense. People say things like "I need to pee like a race horse" and I wonder why they want to pee outdoors, standing up, with no regad for who might be watching or what they pee on.

    I saw the one in roanoke but it was a bit too far. (about an hours drive.) But I eventually found a place in Radford which cuts drive time in half. even found someone who may carpool and split lesson costs
