Alleged Wing Chun ‘master’ fights in MMA

Thursday, July 13, 2017

In this video from Russian amateur MMA league ‘Arrows Street Fight,’ we see what happens when a supposed Wing Chun ‘master’ tries his hand at MMA competition against an alleged boxer.

The Wing Chun guy’s technique in this video is quite awful though. It looks as if he has zero training at all in there. But he does appear to have a dragon on his T-shirt so that’s at least something to go on.

His opponent, the boxer, doesn’t seem all that polished either but at least he understands the basics. He at least keeps his guard up and has decent movement and footwork, while the Wing Chun guy literally just walks forward into incoming punches with no thought of defense in mind.

Wing Chun is one of those martial arts though that seldom holds up against a legitimate opponent in modern mixed martial arts competition. It just doesn’t seem to be the most effective martial art and seems a little outdated.

The only real thing the Wing Chun guy shows in this bout is his fighting spirit and that he can take a decent shot, initially. His chin finally gives out though after a solid right hook lands from the boxer that clearly hurts him. The fight is quickly stopped shortly thereafter after some follow up punches.

One good thing about these amateur ‘Arrows’ MMA fights is that they are usually very quick to stop it which is essential in this kind of bout.

The project “Arrow. Street fights “started in the summer of 2011 in St. Petersburg. Anyone has the opportunity to take part in street battles without rules. Only amateurs and semi-professionals are allowed to fight. After careful analysis of the data and capabilities of the fighters, the jury forms approximately equal in strength pairs. Men and women of different ages and social groups participate in the battles, which gives the project a genuinely popular and democratic character. [Source: YouTube]
