I was watching IP Man 3 when Donnie Yen fights Mike Tyson along with other Wing Chun lectures and it got me thinking about how a Wing Chun martial artist would deal with powerful attacks. Let's face it - Mike Tyson will leave you half dead with those explosive punches lol. He is extremely fast. Aside from that scene, i've seen one of his boxing matches and he was arrogantly dodging every strike his opponent threw. It would be very unwise for a Wing Chun practitioner to exchange fists with him. Boxers like him are incredibly trained especially with quick body and head shots. From what i've learned, Wing Chun principles say "don't fight the force." I'm cautious about blocking attacks head on because i might break an arm or leg in the process and/or lose balance. I would like to know what is the best approach to avoid, deflect, absorb, etc. the impact of devastating attacks along with useful techniques.
