    is what I alluded to in my post. That was just becoming known back in the mid-1980's. Now it's the dominant martial art 'style'.

    As your name implies, we are talking about "mixed" martial arts and the functionality, the worth and importance of wing chun is not as a direct action so much as a vehicle for sensitivity as to when to used all those other forms you have studied. So we 'mix' martial arts to have a larger arsenal.

    Wing Chun is limited to a small area between boxing and grappling. But it is nonetheless valuable stuff.

    That said if two people have trained in different styles my guess is the winner is simply better at their style more than one approach is better than the other.

    Muay Thai and Wing Chun compliment each other beautifully. That's what I have practiced all these years.

    My former sensei teaches Silat and BJJ/combat submission wrestling.
