Wing Chun ‘master’ vs. boxer using just ONE arm – guess who wins

Sunday, March 25, 2018

Wing Chun is a traditional Chinese martial art with a lot of interesting history behind it but as a martial art and self-defense style, it doesn’t seem very effective and always seems to come up short versus more modern striking styles like boxing or Muay Thai.

However, what would happen if you leveled the playing field a little bit by having a Wing Chun practitioner take on a boxer who’s only using one of his arms? In this video, we see that very scenario take place and it is definitely pretty interesting to see how it unfolds.

As previously stated, while Wing Chun has some interesting history behind it and it may look pretty cool in the movies, in reality, it just doesn’t seem like the most effective style.

It just doesn’t seem like the correct way to train or fight and against a boxer who is using the correct technique, Wing Chun is, unfortunately, going to come up short just about everytime.

So does that mean that Wing Chun is completely useless altogether? Check out the video below to see how it does against a boxer who’s using only one arm and decide for yourself.

ABOUT WING CHUN:
Wing Chun (traditional Chinese: 詠春) is a traditional Southern Chinese Kung fu martial art specializing in close range combat. It is one of the most famous styles in wushu. It is known for being economical, direct and efficient. Wing Chun teaches practitioners to advance quickly and strike at close range. While the Wing Chun forward kick can be considered a long range technique, many Wing Chun practitioners practice “entry techniques”—getting past an opponent’s kicks and punches to bring them within range of Wing Chun’s close range repertoire. This means that theoretically if the correct techniques are applied, a shorter person with a shorter range can defeat a larger person by getting inside their range and attacking them close to their body. [Source: Wiki]
