    "If there's a bridge, cross it. If there's no bridge, build one"

    I would dispute the premise of the video in the O.P , that in my opinion is a load of crap. I like how these videos that try and point out flaws in Wing Chun principles never seem to have a proper grasp of the principles that they are saying won't work. Hands up , if in your Wing Chun the goal...

    Chi Sau vs Tui Shao conundrum

    The guy is an idiot , stay away from him. Forward force is more about mental intent than actual physical force. There is pressure involved but it is very slight , it is about the same amount of effort required to lean your elbow on a table top. The pressure that the opponent feels should be...

    I think the lenses on those Bjj goggles he's got welded to his head are so damn thick , everything he sees out of them is from the perspective a grappler in a competition. Simple kicks in the face and groin won't do , no , you've got to pass the guard get a submission hold and see if the judges...

    People generally kick a lot faster than what was shown in that video , and not as circular I might add. Very hard to grab legs that are both continually thrusting out at high speed. You grab one leg , they'll kick you in the head with the other.

    Yeah cartwheels will work in the crowded bar won't they. :rolleyes: Excuse me people can you move for a sec while I just cartwheel onto this dude on the floor.

    Pretty solid technique in my book , getting kicked in the face and the groin is no fun. That being said you could probably do away with some of the fancy stuff. Just because it is not your way , does not make it a less valid tool for self defence.

    Why do TMAs have more difficulty in the ring/octagon?

    Let's have closer look at this full resistance thing you keep talking about shall we. Is it really full resistance , you are not training against people trying to trap your hands and punch you , you are not training against people trying to kick you , you are not training against people trying...

    Mate , there are always going to be dickheads. Don't train because you care about what dickheads think. Train because you enjoy it.

    And of course Bjj people have never been associated with criminal activities now have they? Perish the thought , they're as pure as the driven snow. :rolleyes:

    You seem to have a quite the talent for twisting peoples words around don't you. There is a level of trust involved with sparring with unknown people , the guys Yak trains with are probably acquaintances and probably come to his Kwoon , they trust him not to elbow strike them in the face , and...

    Based out means his legs are apart , kick him in the groin then.

    Oh for God's sake , he has both his feet in his hips. He would only have to straighten both his legs out sharply and launch that guy into a wall. No need for the rest of the stuff.

    Can Bruce Lee's Kung Fu philosophy be used on other martial arts?

    Not really relevant to the topic at hand. But do think you would be able to change your name please , my eyesight is not so good and I keep reading your name as Tit fire. Or maybe that says more about me than what it does you.

    Umm , because you can still strike from your back , they are called kicks. Particularly relevant when you are on your back and someone is standing . Great for targeting the lower legs and the groin. Let's get into the fair dinkum department for a minute. True story , about 8 years ago now , my...

    Dude wing chun are you doing much chi sau at all? Because chi sau teaches you amongst other things to be aggressive , get in close and stay in close. It also teaches the correct range for hitting. Maybe you could teach your partner chi sau , and then start to have a bit of a play around trying...

    Your assuming that you could get control of that arm , might be easy to latch onto the sleeve of a gi. Not so easy with no sleeve , or maybe even blood or sweat on the arms. There is also the issue of if there is a size disparity , can you still get your leg up high enough to control the hip if...

    Ok , so you do get punched from this attempted sweeping position. Then maybe wouldn't it make a little more sense , to keep both your feet pointed straight towards him so he can't even get to your head at all. And use both your legs to keep him at bay and blast kicks into his knees , shins ...

    Yep , and if your close enough to grab his ankle , he's also close enough to bend down and punch your head into the concrete.

    And there are ways to deal with a force coming from the side , mainly a Bong Sau with a 45 degree pivot. Depending on how much bodyweight you have committed to that haymaker , you are highly likely to find yourself redirected to the side and off balance , leaving your side and back exposed.

    No , what it indicates is that if your punches are wild and all over the place , there will be a point of entry where your opponent can eventually get a clinch. It is bit more of a difficult proposition to do that , when the striker adheres to correct form and keeps the punches compact and on...

    Well , I have been training in Wing Chun since July of 1989 and I am still perfecting mine. It is an ongoing process , there is no time when you say I have now "arrived". You could see in the video I posted of my late Master , he was still getting tips on doing it properly from his Master , and...

    Why do TMAs have more difficulty in the ring/octagon?

    Oh ok , so I'm just supposed to let somebody take me down without hitting them at full power , so that they can choke me out and put it up on Youtube and make me look like an idiot. Not bloody likely.

    Why do TMAs have more difficulty in the ring/octagon?

    There are ways to train reallistically and still stay safe. You can train low heel kicks on kick shields or against somebody with heavy leg protection on like cricket leg pads , or those plastic baseball leg guards , they work pretty well. Strikes to the throat and neck can be trained on the...

    Who's talking about magic , magics got nothing to do with it. What is has got to do with however , is having a decent stance to generate power from and having various stuctures in the proper alignment in which to properly transmit that force into the target. No magic , just a high degree of skill.

    Don't wear any gloves. They wreck your technique anyway , they get in the way of doing proper Tan Sau's and basically limit you to doing a lot of Pak Sau's. As it has been pointed out already you have a problem with throwing strikes out of range , one way to fix that is to both wear chest...

    Why do TMAs have more difficulty in the ring/octagon?

    No a low heel kick to the shin does not kill you , but it will hurt like a ***** , momentarily halt your advance and stop you from getting into punching range and clinching range. There is also the little matter of the chain punches that will be coming in at the rate of 7 to 8 a second directly...

    Why do TMAs have more difficulty in the ring/octagon?

    Depends who is doing the striking to the neck and what expertise they have doesn't it. That funny wooden man thing we train on , there is a reason for that , it can take strikes that would seriously injure a live human being.
