If I was looking for a Chinese art to study, I would investigate the Chang Dongsheng school. He was one of my Teacher's Teacher. My teacher was his assistant for a while teaching at the police(I believe it was police) academy. The Chang Dongsheng school is known for excellent kung fu. Grand Master Chang was undefeated in his art. I would hope this branch holds high standards.Hi there!
I want to learn kung-fu. I don't want to compete or anything like that. Just for self defense and discipline.
I took 2 wing chun lessons with one of my friends. I liked it, but he said it was a bit difficult for him at first. He took kyokoushin karate like 10 years ago and compared it to that. I didn't learn any martial arts as of now. He said we should check out other styles of kung-fu too.
There are Ch'ang Dung Sheng Shaolinf Kung Fu, Xing Yi Quan Shaolin Kung Fu, and there are a few other Wing Chun schools as well. I tried to read upon them. Usually what I find is that win chun os more straight forward and easier to master than shaolin kung-fu.
What are your opinions on theese styles? Wich is the easiest to master, and wich is the most effective in your opinion?
Thank you all for your help!
