Why do you want to know?
From all your previous posting, you are so afraid of getting hurt.
Dont you know that fighting will get you hurt.
How about another hobbie like arts and crafts.

I am well aware that fighting will get you hurt. However, I do not see the need to get permanently hurt. That defeats the purpose of martial arts, which is to protect your well-being.

I have seen very few WC schools in which a student gets to "experience" a REAL punch, one with intent to harm, while the Muy Thai guys I know, get the experience of real intent.

i can tell you ive experienced heaps of "real" punches at training.

hummble warrior i already answered this in the wing chun section but how many times are you going to ask it

San soo is the dominating combat art

I agree and disagree with the earlier post.
In mui thai you will definitly get much more of a beating, and will train you to take punches and kicks.
However, it is only kickboxing, and as such is a very primitive martial art.
You will learn much more from Wing Chun in the long term.
I would suggest doing 6-12 months of mui thai to learn the basics of punching and kicking, as well as getting in shape and toughening up. Then go into Wing Chun and don't look back.

Good Im glad to see everyone agree with me!

as should already be known it is not so much the art that is better but the person using it.as i have said before that i have seen fighters who have never even trained in any arts and could probably kick 90 percent of our asses on their natural ability & mind set alone.so make up your own mind as you have to enjoy what you are doing.
having said that,'go the ving tsun fist'

Ving Tsun? is that arussian art. Maybe somethingf like sambo. HMMM it sounds russian. Just playing. I respect you and your art. Have a good day.

San Soo is garbage. You're better off training kickboxing or boxing or muay thai than san soo.

08-27-2000, 02:46 AM
You must have gotten beat up by a san soo fighter. Its ok it happens all the time. You win some and you lose some. If you recommend muay thai or boxing you train in one or both and have nnever had the balls to enter a san soo school!
