I think this guy is pretty funny!
I like that he qualifies himself (I don’t know Wing Chun) and appreciates that there may be Wing Chun fighters who don’t do the stupid things he is parodying.
I’d like to tell him, the reason everyone is doing Wing Chun vs Boxing is that we realize that most fighters we may face will be doing either some real boxing or some half-assed “I saw it in a movie” boxing.
The most popular attacks on the street are sloppy wide “hooks” and fearful, range finding jabs.
So we Wing Chun people like to see what we can do about those techniques. But there is a big difference between people who learned how to box watching movies and screwing around with their equally untrained friends in Junior High and a real boxer who has speed, timing, experience, and knows how to close the gap.
Wong Shun Leung felt Western boxers were our most dangerous opponents and I agree. The only hitch for boxers is out on the streets there are no hand wraps and gloves – they are used to these things and can easily damage their hands, while a good Wing Chun guy has conditioned their hands. And a really smart Wing Chun guy has trained against properly executed boxing techniques.
I’m getting ready to start doing some video stuff myself and this is an area I would like to address. Hopefully I can get my friend (a former pro boxer) to help me examine this Wing Chun vs Boxing subject (you out there, G?).
