I have been studying Wing Chun and can be a devastating form of Gung Fu in the proper hands. I'm not going to pretend to know it's strength in MMA, but I have seen it is not very effective in martial arts competition. The reason for this is with the padding the Vertical Punches of Wing Chun are based on speed and disorientation rather than power. Unless you have a master of the one inch punch this will simply not be effective in competition. Another reason is that the practical use of the 3rd form of Wing Chun, Biu Tze, cannont be utilized, most of this form is geard towards moves to use in an emergency when your centerline has been compromised. Most of these moves can severely injure and debilitate if not kill which is something that should never be used in the ring. Even Bruce Lee, probably the most famous practitioner of Wing Chun, said that it had limitations in practical applications mostly do to its restrictive form, which is why he went on to create Jeet Kune Do. So, as a self-defense strategy in a street fight, yes Wing Chun is very effective and very deadly in the right hands, but not so in a competition style event. That being said this guy was not the right hands. Wing Chun is the thinking mans martial art and pays no respect to size, this guy is not a thinking man. Even Yip Man (Bruce Lee's Sifu) said that it is not the fighting style, but the man using it.

Does nobody see that the guy is crazy? Talking about failing to perceive reality correctly the trainer dude told him right "you are living in your own world".
PS: Only in America you can find this king of mental disorder, it's that common that people find it normal know.
If the "Wing Tsun" man would have showed some composure the outcome might have been different but he had to show a lack of respect not only to M1 but to all who where there trying out, one of which I train with. An open mind would have been really good on his part but he was close minded and got shut down. On the "Wing Tsun" mans defense, they should have let him fight to see what skills he really has, it was a little un-professional on their(M1) part as well but when you step into someone elses house you must comply by their rules. End of m@#$er fu@#in story!!!
when i get knowcked out im always like:
OMFG I DIDNT LOSE, IMA SLEEP-FU GUY
wing chung 4 life!!!, wish i could see him fighting soon.
what kind of tryouts was that ???
let the wing chung man fight !!!!
The so called Wing Chun man huh, thats rich, he should know that no matter what style you practice, the sport is mixed martial arts, meaning the combination of many styles. So coming in with a closed mind like that is a sure path to a short career, muay thai has proven itself as an effective combat style. So obviously the M1 coaches need to know a fighters proficiency in that discipline, and with that regard, I doubt he knows anything about grappling either, and would most likely get submitted easily or grounded and pounded. The M1 guy just saw this and stated the obvious, the guy is a joke, and a discrace to real mixed martial artists.
*I`am WingChung man lol I ain´t no Muay Thai fighter :D*
this guy really has failed lol ...
dude you gotta say yes to all they say until u get the contract cuz thats how they run their business and if it don´t suit u ur out as simple as that !!!

I agree with the Wing Chun guy and disapprove of how easily and harsh that the M-1 guys dismissed him and his art. Not that I know anything much about Wing Chun, a simple lesson would have been to have one of the fighters test him in the cage.
I mean did the open try outs specifically state that you must know muay thai? If not, then I can see where the sense of betrayal and anger came from. And for the M-1 guy to say "you are no good" is amazingly brazen and disrespectful.
I don't know how Wing Chun would do in the cage, especially from a guy who claims to be either a master or high level.
While the Wing Chun guy went a little overboard in his response, there was no reason for him to show them any more respect than they showed him. Heck, its not like they want him so what does he have to lose?
The only suggestion that I have, since I have is if he feels Wing Chun is superior, then he should take it to the local or smaller promotions and show the world and M-1 how wrong they are.
This guy cracks me up. lol. I'm a WINGCHUN man!!!
This is more of an M-1 Fail.
Also what a disgrace to the martial arts community with a faux wanna be guy like that. Disregard, and move forward amicably.
