I hate to say this, but how many times have we seen a Wing Chun practitioner not do too well in fights? Whether it’s against a boxer, a Muay Thai fighter or some other form of martial arts where their striking is actually tested through sparring and not theory – they always seem to find themselves at the end of a punch.

Not that all traditional forms of martial arts don’t test their systems, but some just tend to do much less than others. Additionally, Wing Chun practitioners always seem to have some sort of chip on their shoulders trying to prove their system is the best.

Here we find another Wing Chun stylist trying to test themselves. We should actually give the practitioner credit for actually getting in a ring to fight. Not too many people would ever dare to step in the ring with the possibility of being extremely hurt. But like previously stated, Wing Chun stylists do not fare too well in full-contact fights.

Once the two touch gloves, we see the Wing Chun practitioner aimlessly following his opponent. Hands are out and there is about a mile-wide gap between his fists and chin. The, what seems to be a MMA fighter is circling around his opponent. He does not seem to be the most seasoned fighter, but he is calmly looking for an opportunity to initiate his offense.

The Wing Chun stylist eventually began his attack with a few low snapping front kicks. But the MMA fighter in his southpaw stance throws a few pawing jabs at him in retaliation. The Wing Chun practitioner lazily tried to parry his pawing jab which allows the MMA fighter to viciously counter with a left cross. This knocks down his opponent and he follows it up with ground and pound before the fight was eventually called off.

Just like how Aamir Khan threw a lazy jab at Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and is countered by Alvarez’s over hand right, a fighter should never lazily throw punches or in this case, a parry. The Wing Chun practitioner also shouldn’t have had his chin open in the air for the taking.
