    What's the future of Wing Chun?

    That is too bad. I wish Wing Chun could figure out a way to divert from this closed door politics and create a more open doored association of Kwoons. Problem is, as is in just about ANY and EVERY form of art, trade, union, or association is that the people in charge of these small groups like...

    What's the future of Wing Chun?

    Geezer, I was mainly responding to this part of your original post of this thread. I love the style of WIng Chun. I tried to continue training after I moved away from my original Sifu (You personally know who he is and I don't much like to name drop on the net). I haven't trained with him in...

    What's the future of Wing Chun?

    Hello all, long time no post here. I am going to get flamed to hell for saying this. These are my views on Wing Chun and why it and most TMA's are drying up. As for why the online WC community is drying up? There are only so many times you can stomach dialog with WIng Chun zealots before it...

    Youth Wrestling Headgear

    Hey guys, I was looking for suggestions on what headgear to get for my 8 yr old son. The one he has now, he complains that he can't hear his coaches of myself when on the mat...and we are all pretty loud LOL. Anyways, which ones are good for the little guys and offer good hearing ability? Thanks!

    Gi shopping

    I ended up getting the X-Guard Hurricane. This thing was as advertised and fits like it was custom tailored. Gi jacket gives me just enough room in the shoulders and stays comfortably snug around my handlebars. LOL Pants were not too long as I feared either. I got the A3 size. Compared to...

    Gi shopping

    Thanks for the update JT. 215 lbs is where I would like to be. I am at 222-228 lbs (weight climbs when I do sprint workouts on the track for some reason it goes down when I stop! LOL) depending on the day. I go to the gym 2-3 times per week and now BJJ twice a week too. I eat pretty clean and...

    Gi shopping

    Thanks again Steve. I am just happy to be training again more than anything. I have never done any Gi stuff. Done lots of No-Gi sparring with an MMA club a few years back, but never Gi or actual BJJ. I am pretty pumped...especially because my son and I are training together! Dream come...

    Gi shopping

    Thanks again Steve and Sukerkin. Steve, I went there and they only have the tight Vale Tudo shorts. NOBODY wants to SEE me in them, let alone ROLL with me! :xtrmshock:lol: From Googling around, I am liking a few different ones, but not sure for size. I'm 5'11" tall and weigh 225 lbs. Broad...

    I am wondering the same thing. Just a bump for this thread, see if any additional suggestions are offered on BJJ gi's and best places to buy them.

    We wore the helmet only and minimal gloves for Bogu sparring.

    Karate that does full contact fighting in point fighting?

    Have you took a look at Koei-Kan-Karate-Do? I am new to the Lansing area and have no idea if their are any schools out here teaching Koei-Kan. I live in Mason now and am pondering my next style/training.

    Fight Quest: Wing Chun

    Just an FYI, any style can be made to look a fool on the internet, and ESPECIALLY YouTube! I have always held that as a general rule, the practitioner must fit the style to make the style most effective. For example, a stocky un atheletic person usually would find Tae Kwon Do an easy system to...

    Wing Chun and BJJ

    I remember when the mere mention of WC/VT + BJJ being similar would incite a forum riot! Maybe they are just scared of you Kamon??? :uhyeah:
