Ya, he is a good showman. However, I am more interested in your opinions on his wc.

So you think his wc is bad then. Ok, why do you think that?

Technical specifics.

Personally, I don't know about his structure or how he does in chi sao or anything like that. However, I will say that there is only one thing he does that I dislike: it seems like in a lot of his videos, bong sao is his go-to first technique. I'm not sure why he does that. I can't imagine leaping into a fight with bong sao first; it's always seemed to me to be one of those techniques that happens almost by accident. lol

That's a good observation. Bong put you under, which is rarely advantageous unless you are wary of a takedown; and even then it doesn't usually leave you in position to grab double underhooks.

As a Master, he's had to pass a lot of grading exams to get where he is now.

One might say that he's been Wong on so many levels...

He does Pan Nam Wing Chun. Features of Pan Nam Wing Chun include:

- Slightly different approaches to the three forms
- Chi Sao with little rolling (Poon Sao)
- A very unique Mook Jong Set
- A 90/10 weight distribution (like in WT)
- A unique Bat Jam Do set and Luk Dim Boon Gwun set
- Additional Chin-Na from Hong Kuen
- An emphasis on striking with the Biu Sao
- A much harder approach to blocking

If you look at his Wing Chun from a Yip Man perspective, naturally it will appear... different. That is not to say it's wrong. It's Pan Nam Wing Chun, not Yip Man Wing Chun.

He is very ellusive about who his sifu is. I assume you grepped this from his movements?

Good eye Dan.

Are you a student or a sifu?

What lineage do you represent?

Always a student... I've studied multiple Wing Chun lineages.

My first sifu studied TWC under William Cheung.

My current sifu studied under several different sifus: Wong Shun Leung, Chu Shon Tin, Sunny Tang.

I also have some experience in Pan Nam style.

As a side note I also study other Kung Fu styles, not just Wing Chun.

I always love when people argue over lineage, because from my perspective, most of it is 90% the same anyways.
