    Anti-grappling

    I was watching, today, the Anti-Grappling video on this forum by The Chinaboxer. All I can say is, anti-grappling is nothing new, just a catch word to get people's attention. It's nothing more than just using good ol Wing Chun principles, theories, and concepts to keep the grappler off of you...

    Firearms

    I happen to be watching Steven Seagal Lawman this morning on A&E TV, and the episode showed that he is a very good marksman with a handgun. He was helping another officer practice his shooting skills for his annual re-certification to carry his handgun. It looked like from 15 or so feet away...

    Looks like we have a new grandmaster in Wing Chun in the U.S.A. And he's the grandmaster of ALL kung fu in America. At least that's what NBC's Today show says. See the link. http://www.clicker.com/web/today-in-2-minutes/Take-a-bow-Master-teaches-Wolfe-kung-fu-1150983/

    Wing Chun Misconceptions

    In the 'Time Does Not Equal Skill' thread, during one of the many banters back and forth between me and coffeerox, he made a comment about Wing Chun that irked me. It irked me because I hear it a lot from people who have never officially trained in the system at all or trained for a short period...

    If I Need Help . . . .

    I have found the students in a Wing Chun kwoon almost always become a very close knit group. So close in fact that a lot of times they claim to be willing to die for their Wing Chun brothers or sisters if called upon to assist them in a combat situation. They are just like our blood siblings. I...

    Another New Martial Way to Truth . . .

    Last night in class, a student of mine asked me if I had ever heard of the martial art (or philosophy) called Keysi. A friend of his (who teaches karate locally) heard there is someone in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, teaching this method. His friend said it looks like they do some form of trapping...

    On a Normal Day . . .

    . . . not much happening on this forum, is there? Only about 2 or 3 replies a day and probably 1 to 2 new threads a week, eh? And we sure don't want to argue amongst ourselves, the WC families already do enough of that. I remember a few years ago, I was on another martial arts forum...
