Wing Chun in Full Contact

Hello all,

Has anyone experienced or knew of Wing Chun training in full contact events? If so what is your opinion on it and any such advice you might have? How did would you (or have you/others) worked your Wing Chun to the event?

Beyond the obvious lack of finger jabs to the eyes and attacks to the throat, I feel that something Wing Chun can use in almost any type of full contact sporting would be the close-range sticking and manipulation of arms/balance. I've had great success with this facet most of all when I would open spar others at various degrees of intensity. That is the one thing I have not see other styles utilize, thus my partners always note and respect this ability after they witness and/or experience it.

I have a Sanshou Leitai event coming up in May. Beyond conditioning and getting "fighting fit", anyone have any words to share?

Hi there!
Best of luck in your event!
Let us know how it goes.

I haven't done much full contact yet myself, but I hope to build up to it.
There was a full contact chi sao event at the Seni 2008 MA exhibition here in the UK - full contact to the body anyway. You can find a number of vieos posted of it on Youtube

It was promoted by an instructor over here called Alan Orr: http://www.alanorr.com/
I think he's got a team in the MMA circuit over here also.
Interesting video.

I know different schools have different styles, and what works for one might not work for another. We don't see much use in full contact chi sau, since chi sau is more for training than as a foundation for full contact. I mean, if you're going to do anything full contact, then might as well just fight.

Here's one of our videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otPO4oRkXKw

The kind of strikes we do preclude full contact on our hits. Our trapping is done full contact and full speed, because that doesn't really hurt, but we always pull our hits, since no one can withstand those kinds of strikes.

It's just different. Thanks for sharing your vids.
