Wing Chun vs. groundfighting

Does anyone here have experience fighting vs. ground fighting styles with Wing Chun? It's kind of hard to evaluate the effectiveness of a form that you're not supposed to use in sport.


I agree. I don't know why they bother teaching it to us. Presumably we'd go into combat with knives, right? So shouldn't we be taught how to fight with a knife? I can only assume it's because of the recent popularity of MMA.
You're not taught to fight with a knife? I'm surprised.
I'm not SF yet. Infantry (11B-10) aren't taught knife fighting, no.
Then they are probably doing what old Kung Fu instructors (including Yip Man) have been doing for hundreds of years. Giving you something that will make you feel confident in the field without making you too dangerous. You'll learn the real stuff as you become a trusted operator.
Ha ha, I doubt it. Not as an eleven bravo.
Then I guess you'll just have to supplement your training somewhere else.
you want to say, that Yip Man's Wing Tsun is outdated, or what?
I don't know what you mean by "outdated". I suspect you didn't understand my original comment. Do you think it's outdated?
yes, I think so :D

I mean, you're trying to say, that Wing Tsun is not useful in street fighting. Right?
Based on what you say so?
No, I think Wing Chun is very useful in street fighting, provided it's good Wing Chun.
