You left out "you don't understand WC, that's clear because you don't understand my vague posts".

It's nice to see that you in a respectful way, are open to the vague posts that generally amount to same. I like that about you, however vague it maybe, you have an open mind fella :)

Thanks. I'm pretty capable of vague posts, myself, and I like when folks both educate me and challenge my current notions.

Welll put, the emboldened bit struck me as I started my current Wing Chun school. It is unorthodox with changes made to the first form especially. It challenged my notions of Wing Chun.

I took some time (about 15 years) to examine my own views of my primary art, training is some other arts - both closely related and not - and re-formed most of my approach to the art. Some of the best help I got in that was from people stating views I hadnt considered, or that I had come to a contrary conclusion to. More to the point, hearing their reasoning (and that of folks I agreed with) helped me change some of my views and reinforce others.

Yes will no doubt that I will be doing a lot of reasoning, especially stance wise. It in class that I first noticed that my footwork was getting compromised. Especially a weakness down my left side. Hopefully it will improve.
