If WC uses the boxing approach, and if the pulling is not emphasized after the punch, the WC will always be a pure striking art. The wrestling art will never be able to be integrated into the WC system. The WC Fu Shou is a pulling. The connection between the striking art and the wrestling art is already available. It's just not used to be linked to the wrestling art.Mainly because you wear gloves in boxing. However one punch in boxing is followed immediately by a second and third. This combination striking is useful for Wing Chun. Many are without it.
Here is another CMA striking art that uses pulling (similar to WC Fu Shou) to link to the wrestling art.
The preying mantis system also uses Diao Shou (similar to WC Fu Shou) to achieve the same goal.
