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.


Re: excuse the awful spelllings

Well, it's got to be better than nothing, and again, in my opinion, it's good to learn all you can. I'm certainly not above talking with other martial artists about what they do and comparing notes. Learn all you can.

And, at least you're doing something. Grab most people or take a swing at them, and they don't have a clue what to do.


Re: excuse the awful spelllings

Well that is very true. It is definitely better than nothing and I suppose if you get in there quick enough on the attack its going to make it hard for them, (hard to hit or grapple someone when your heads going backwards and your brain is being bounced around I guess) I definitely stand by the idea that if someones on the defensive its a lot harder to plan a counter attack. So yeah its really good reactions to have when dealing with an unexpected violent encounter (I guess you just have to make sure you can hit really frikken hard

That was me by the way. I ticked the wrong box :-S

Re: excuse the awful spelllings

It's good to hit hard, and you should practice hitting as hard as you can, but if you hit the right targets, you don't have to hit as hard.

Wing Chun is all about target acquisition. That's what all the trapping is for.
