    Good WCK clips

    Though we study different lineages here I'm sure people see good things in WC branches out side of their own. Of course there will be things in other lineages that you'll disagree with but I think it would be refreshing to see people make positive comments on good the things instead of the usual negative bashing. I don't think I'm being too idealistic because I talk with other WChunners who feel the same way.
    I'll start off by posting clips I think have value. Hopefullyl others will do the same.
    Now what I might think is good might not be for others but here goes.
    I'll start with this one:

    Obviously you like Philip Bayer's approach. Hopefully you're not learning from his school or students. The purpose of this thread is to see if you can see something of value in a WC style/lineage outside or yours.

    If this becomes a thread of only me giving props o other WC people then so be it. I'll keep looking until the thread gets old. Knowing most WC people there sadly be only a few posts.

    Your opponent raises a leg you raise a leg. Good WC to me.

    Chinaboxer, Jin Young, his video tutorials are a real treat. Jin is a student of Hawkins Cheung, not much online about him so it's nice to see some of what he teaches. I was always curious about his stuff, and Jin does a wonderful job explaining the concepts and principles behind his training method. Jin also trains in Ground grappling, MT, and JKD I believe, with some ring tutorials on his youtube page.

    It's good except he extends his arm (a tan sao?) when he checks the kick instead of keeping his arm tight (to his head). If his opponent switched and kicked high, it would blow through an extended arm.

    Personally, I think the whole branch/lineage distinction is meaningless. WCK is WCK. Are there some PEOPLE in WCK doing good things? Certainly.

    Of course there will be things in other lineages that you'll disagree with but I think it would be refreshing to see people make positive comments on good the things instead of the usual negative bashing.
    I think the term "negative comments" (or bashing) is misleading. I guess from your POV that if you say anything other than "how wonderful" it is "negative." From my POV, however, criticism is not "negative". Anything helpful isn't "negative". And criticism is generally far more helpful than praise. We learn far better from mistakes, from having weaknesses pointed out, etc. than from success -- or complacency.

    The WCK clips I like are those that record the curriculum of "older", non-YM branches of WCK like these for instance:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGKARYWSV8c

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w60X7BF631A

    Although I don't care for many of his "applications".

    But what's the point of the cirriculum if there is not good and proper application? I must admit that I am surprised to see you say that you "like" these clips.
