    Shawn Obasi & Emin Boztepe friendly Chi-sau

    Looked bad at what? He was playing Shawns demo dummy, allowing Shawn to show his thing. What exactly was he supposed to look good at?

    Shawn Obasi & Emin Boztepe friendly Chi-sau

    You assume inability, while Kevin did not even attempt to interrupt Shawn while he was showing his method. Thats called respect. It would be different if an unsuccessful attempt had been made. Shawn was attending a seminar and being instructed. It was not a match, and not what Kevin and...

    Shawn Obasi & Emin Boztepe friendly Chi-sau

    This again... :facepalm: That would be absurd, and it is absurd to think thats what happened. Competitive chi-sau is an absurd thought in the VT Kevin does, and is not something he would ever engage in. In reality, Kevin had been sharing some drills with Shawn, explaining his style. Then...

    Pin Sun Wing Chun & Wing Chun Boxing

    Haha! Just like how he made one (1) trip to Hong Kong to learn about Tang Yik pole, and as soon as he got home he started teaching it and making master's class videos teaching it all wrong. Internet forums are where he comes for validation and gratification because he knows he's basically a...

    Wing Chun Boxing

    No, it wasn't. Nice thought... Too bad it's entirely wrong. The style has nothing to do with Taijiquan. It uses Taiji in the name merely to recognize the philosophical principles of Yin and Yang present in the system, represented by the Taiji symbol.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    You have not tried to show exactly who and when you think they did this. But, even if it happened, it's not because it's the VT method. Humans tend to make errors, of course.

    No, he didn't.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    Not where you were pointing. No one had a forward-weighted lead-rear stance, anyway. VT doesn't have lunging punches like WB.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    Wrong. Can't load the lead leg if there is no lead leg to load.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    Depending on position, distance, and timing, paak-da may well be a valid and necessary response. It becomes a primary action where one arm can't be used alone. If done in place of a single-arm action, for lack thereof, it's likely arm-chasing. I've said paak-sau opens the way for the punch...

    No. I agree 100% with his VT way of thinking. It's the same system.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    The MMA guys, maybe. The VT guys' stances are perpendicular to the MMA guys' lead-rear stances. It is not possible to be forward-weighted. You can't even see their lower bodies in that video, but VT is not forward-weighted.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    You should just do boxing then. Why mix it with something that probably doesn't work? MMA doesn't work like kickboxing, and kickboxing doesn't work like boxing. Fundamental changes had to be made. Put Mayweather in the cage with McGregor and he'd probably get smeared in a matter of seconds...

    Wing Chun Boxing

    Western Boxing has proven uniquely vulnerable to leg kicks. "Wing Chun Boxing" is mixing two methods that have this same weakness.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    You are just saying the strategy is "to fight". How you fight will change a lot if you're used to not having to be concerned with the dangers of leg kicks. And end up with a weighted and/or exposed lead leg all the time. How do you think kickboxing changed after leg kicks became legal? I...

    Wing Chun Boxing

    A lot. Weighting the lead leg is often the problem, which happens a lot. When pro and amateur boxers fight low kickers, they get their legs destroyed, as numerous videos have shown. Kickboxing methods had to change when it faced leg kicks, because it was previously not allowed, which left...

    Wing Chun Boxing

    So, what are you going to teach in a few lessons to defend against leg kicks without changing foot placement and weighting in stance, or the footwork, power generation methods, and fight strategy, all of which leave the lead leg very exposed to leg kicks? Correct. Unfortunately, adding Western...

    Interesting. None of that stuff is even mine.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    Right. Not a single leg kick was thrown that day... Most likely because it was against the rules they had agreed upon because boxers can't handle leg kicks, which was my point exactly. This was no answer to numerous videos of pro boxers getting their legs destroyed.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    Correct. The action is just a refinement of a natural instinct to cover one's head. That's why it comes up in multiple unrelated fighting arts from East to West. I agree, which is why it's silly to insist that it belongs to WB, and use that excuse to invalidate VT methods by saying "but...

    Wing Chun Boxing

    It is a big jump because you have 0 evidence for that. Also, still images showed the exact same position in the form and sparring, and it is interpreted this way by multiple unrelated lineages. Because we have multiple unrelated lineages that have the same idea already in the BJ form. I've...

    Wing Chun Boxing

    That WB works does not justify the claim that this action found in multiple unrelated WC/VT lineages came to them from WB. That claim has no evidence.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    The guy above also does it with an elbow from the other arm, which WB never does, but Shaolin does, as I showed here. Since some say Wing Chun is a distillation of Shaolin arts, why would you not look there for possible origins, and instead jump straight to Western Boxing? Obviously because...

    Wing Chun Boxing

    Someone just posted this video in another thread. So, that makes at least 3 unrelated lineages that have this idea from Biu-ji. If you admit it is in the "DNA" of VT/WC, then it was not transplanted. If you want to suggest that everyone is just copying WB, you need to support your claim with...

    Geezer said Alan has been updating his WC with new training and techniques based on WB/MMA, which would be developing his own WC system. Not shocked and don't care. I haven't done his online apprenticeship like you, but I'm familiar with what he does. I also said there is absolutely nothing...

    Wing Chun Boxing

    Where did you hear he has been developing a WC system of his own? It has been my understanding that he teaches CSLWC. Not only that, but he has gone to lengths to show how it differs from WB. So, to say he's copying WB is to just not understand what he's doing. You should take a closer look.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    Yeah? Never said I didn't talk about WC and WB. Compatibility is something I talked about regarding the VT I train and WB.

    Wing Chun Boxing

    The Iron Wolves fighter was neither doing VT, nor throwing an overhand. VT doesn't use the whipping punch or overhand. Never said anything about an overhand. The Iron Wolves fighter was not doing VT, and I've said nothing in regards to compatibility between boxing and other WC systems, only...

    Obviously the latter is a wild claim. Have you been to most TCMA schools in the world? Have you even been out of the country?

    Wing Chun Boxing

    You also said you couldn't tell which was the chunner on a video that says Best Wing Chun KO. So, you are just trolling to style-bash WC/VT.
