    Which Kung Fu style is the most well-rounded and fit for street combat?

    I have often which Kung Fu style is the most well-rounded and fit for functional self defense.
    I would vote for Wing Chun, which I study, but it has no groundfighting technique whatsoever.
    What do you guys think?

    Wing Chun has groundfighting.

    Longterm I'd say modern longfist (don't laugh). It not only teaches basic self defense it's also make other styles easier to learn (crosstraining). As for teaching good self defense in the shortest amount of time I've found Arnis to be pretty efective.

    I believe my style is very well rounded for street combat, luckily I haven't got the chance to test it though [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    As far as Kung-Fu styles go, I'd say, in a short time, Wing Chun (Which is also the style I study) I have to agree with Jo on this one, though. To my knowledge, Wing Chun has no groundfighting whatsoever.
    Choy Li Futt seems like the best rounded and effective Kung-Fu style, though. I have never taken it, so I don't really know.
    Shia Chiao (I forget the spelling) is a great art, also. Good for takedowns, throws, things like that.

    Fut Sao Gu Yee Chuan Wing Chun Kuen's ground fighting starts in lotus and rerverse lotus and is adaptable to grappling and anti-grappling through it's Chin Na.

    It wouldn't help you much if my style was the best in the world (which it probably is not) because you would have to move to Norway to practice it [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
    no offense meant

    Leon, what do you practice?

    I am interested in western as well as Eastern martial arts. From possibly the first complete martial arts system, Pankration, down to oddities like cornish wrestling (alot like judo), cumbrian wrestling (a bit like BJJ mixed with Judo and Boxing) and Greenoch (The celtish native martial art)

    What system do you practice, and what are its characteristics?

    Thanks in advance,

    If I'm not mistaken, Leon practices
    'Thái Cùc Hiêp Võ Môn KungFu'

    Ah, the wonders of profiles. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Oh no dude, don't go there!hehehe

    Wing Chun has ground fighting, fighting to stand up!
    The average 'Chunner is dead on the ground, but one time my mook jong fell over and...

    With all the choices around, why would anyone be practicing a style that they didn't think was well rounded and efficacious?

    Change your name to uncommom sence,

    I have done nothing but full contact my entire carreer as a martial artist. In and out of our school. I'm not afraid of anybody.
    Unfortunaly you can't tap out of a broken leg.
    There is nothing nervous about me.
    Careful what you wish for.....

    Where did I come into this thread? Why did you pick this thread to comment on me? When there are so many others to choose from. the put up or shut up post, the attn sifuabel post, the monkey kung fu post. Whats the deal?
