    I'm curious if his defensive wrestling and posture is really that strong that he doesn't need a deep underhook or a wizzer. Are there any videos of him going live? It is natural for people from one art to look for a way to not have to engage in their favorite way, like a wrestler clinching a boxer. Here we have a WC guy showing that he can neutralize the under and overhooks and wrestle without going for conventional positions. Is it true?

    Why do people insist on trying to find ways to apply irrelevant pursuits of theirs to completely unrelated stuff?

    Remembering back a few years ago now where it seemed like every 'master' was 'uncovering' the Wing Chun ground-fighting forms 'hidden' in their art... I am going to say that we're nowhere close to that dying off.

    can't we just put Wing Chun with the other "artsy" martial arts like aikido and kung fu instead of trying to force them to go with the actual effective fighting systems like BJJ and Thai Boxing. Its like a toddler trying to cram a triangle into a circle slot
