I noticed they have kung fu as a category and also Chinese martial arts, which is, in essence, kung fu. (Also, Tai chi is kung fu/ CMA, but for sake of discussion we'll leave that in its own category.)
Should these numbers get added together for a more accurate score?
Hmm... "The WC Adaptors" has a certain flair to it.
You got me thinking...you know, because I'm a thinker....maybe I'm thinking too small.
Maybe we should really put this out there.
I'm thinking either WIng Tsun Federation and our slogan could be "what the @#+$ you training all alone for?"...
Yeah I'm not interested in anyone who's gone off to form their own organizations, I'm looking for people like you and me who are just training and teaching in our own little corner of the world and aren't worried about becoming a grand poobah of our own organization.
I kind of see this like a book exchange program, or even a barter system.

Also, I think it's a good idea to not only work the muscles involved in WT/ WC training but to work the antagonist muscles that are generally not used to prevent muscle inbalance.
The dummy and wall bag provide some of this, but yeah I agree, WC training is not enough for conditioning and needs to be supplemented
