In wing chun, during the chi sau training drill (as per the OP video)...the guy on the left would have been punched in the ribs by the guy on the right immediately upon him releasing to go for the "pinned arm" move. It is not about whether or not the "move would work" or not. It is all about training the limbs and joints to explode forward to hit/strike. By him doing that (going for the arm pin) and his partner also going for an arm pin release (or whatever), they are both de-training a keystone on which the wing chun system is built. Just my 2 cents of course. Folks can do whatever they want...apparently. But if you took the punching out of boxing would it still be boxing? If you took the grappling out of grappling would it still be grappling? And so on and so forth...I am not necessarily saying that move would would work. I wouldn't know.
As for whatever kung fu wang is trying to get at...who knows. He has a knack for steering threads away from their original topic. He sometimes makes valid points but his delivery is a bit incomprehensible at times.
Meanwhile...I need an adult beverage! Carry on!
