Dojo Rat posts on Wing Chun

Just a little time for posting, as we're packing to move. The house has sold (yeehaaa!), and we're moving out to Pennsylvania, land of colder winters (than Virginia), and cooler summers. I plan to start a new crew out there, and teach privately. More on that soon.

DR posts a couple of excellent videos representing Wing Chun (Ving Tsun) chi sao and, what's DR on Wing Chunpossibly a "street example" of WC practicality. DR's martial journey is similar to mine, though he's melding more internal, "soft" style technique into his personal expression of unarmed combat.

"Honestly, I see my arts approaching a fusion state; I began as a high-school wrestler, went through 2nd Dan Black belt in Tae Kwon Do (1980's), 3d Dan in Kenpo, two years Aikido, twelve years Tai Chi and countless Small-Circle Jujitsu drills via Wally and Leon Jay. The Wing Chun we learned was from Ron Ogi, the top student of James DeMile, who was Bruce Lee's student and friend."

I trained just over three years in Canton-style WC, and have a severe appreciation for it's capabilities. Head over to Dojo Rat to view and for the rest...
