Hmmm... I'm having problems telling who is who by the techniques displayed once contact is made.

The wing chun guy is wearing a William Cheung t shirt. He constantly switches stance and use an asking hand. UGH...he basically becomes a boxer at the 245 mark...

That's pretty much what I saw. They posture with the style, then it becomes back kickboxing.

Yep, that is almost always the case with striking styles --as soon as they start full contact sparring, it becomes sloppy kickboxing.

--So why not just train kickboxing to being with...?

Nothing against the guys fighting --good for them-- but they were completely unprepared by their coaches. They didn't have enough defense to be fighting full-contact , IMO.

If that was the Bagua guy's coach talking into the camera, he sounded like a real idiot; wasn't there for his fighter.

And I defy anyone to point out a single moment of "Bagua" in that whole backyard MMA slopfest.

 This ufc like event had far too many rules for wing chun or bagua to get a fair trial.

I'm actually thinking about rolling up and competing. I have trained under William Cheung org before; however, I would prob. use boxing/kickboxing tactics. ODD rules. They allow takedowns and ground/pound but no submissions. Kinda like the OLD WCC rules where Renzo owned.

Yeap!

If only those styles trained you to actually fight someone who is fighting you back. Much of the structure of their original styles deteriorates when someone actual punches back or grabs them.
