    Enjoyed the video. Especially the humorous clips. Well produced. Have to say that I agree that in self defense, your attacker will never see the man-wu-sau guard. And an area of disagreement. I've...

    OK, much as I like Keith, I gotta admit this comment is spot on.


    I don't fully understand it, but some of your remarks really get him worked up. Are you sure you aren't doing it on purpose?

    Good thing LFJ jumped in to "clarify" so that you don't come across as a total fool.

    This is true. the problem is finding other VT/WC/WT people to fight you. Heck, around here, even some of my former hing-dai won't even do chi-sau or spar with me (or other outsiders, infidels,...

    Thanks Keith. It looks good, but a bit pricey for a plastic trunk set-up. Also, I will need a set up with easy height adjustment suitable for people from around 5'6" to 6'3". So I guess I'll keep...

    Related to #1 above, someone who can set you up and then shoot a good takedown. Too many WC/VT fighters are head-hunters who leave their legs exposed. If they train against takedowns, they too often...

    Good question, Dave. I've been away from this forum for a long time, so it's nice to stop back in and see that good discussion still happens here.

    If your opponent jerks down your tan-sau, why do you resist when it is so much easier to go with his force? Just roll into bong or release and run around, etc.
