i started wing chun - been going twice a week for the last 2 months and i have learnt quite alot. But you can never see wing chun to its full potential if it is versing a different style in the ring. It's mainly because wing chun uses alot of grabs, eye gouges and their kicks are mainly done to the groin.
But even though i have just started, i can see already that alot of the moves are much more effective then kickboxing. ie. Wing Chuns' version of a 'check' is alot more effective. Instead of lifting your leg up and feeling 100% of the energy to your shin, in Wing Chun we absorb the incoming kick and deflect it while opening the oppenent up for a counter. You would probably only feel 50% of the energy being thrown at you

both martial arts have their highlights and dodgy bits. If you do either one, you are better off than not doing one at all. To be REALLY good you should do both, so that you can just say that they both have their good and bad parts to them. A person can only fight to their full potential if they personalise what they have learned (discipline still needs to be followed,but). If I am dribbling crap, just tell me and I will listen to your points of view. cheers, Nathan

nathan i disagree with parts of your post.
i'll give you a simple quote to explain why i disagree with learning 2 or more martial arts.

To the comment "jack of all trades master of none"
i belive your wrong on this one i have previously done boxing and now do mau thai and kung fu in a style called choy la fut. i frequently find myself in street fights, not because i go looking more sticking up for my dumb ass mates. anyway i found combining the best parts of the three to work effectivly, the hand techniques from boxing helped alot when moving to mua thai which i find concentrates more on kicks and the stances, flow and aggression that is associated with choy la fut emphasises fast strong technique. overall its helped me alot to be learning more than one style at a time. ps that undefetablebum is a drop kick.

I think it really depends on what you want to do. I'm partial to kickboxing myself. But that's just me. The idea that something ruins a person's frame is rather humorous. I'd like to know where that came from.

^ i think that undefeatedchamp has not tried any of these styles and is going by word of mouth....before i started kickboxing i was told things about the conditioning stages for shins and stuff like that which is no way near as it was told....he has been told things he believed is true....

on the topic of better styles, like it has been said, you will never know, their are alwayws going to be those for, and against...their will always be plus's and negatives to each side whether one loses or wins ( in a fight situation )....as in a street fight u may win but excuses will be made as to why by the other party

personally im considering going to try wing chun with a trainer from my gym as he has been doing it for a while, this is what drawed me into this conversation....it looks good, and if done well, quitea good style to incoporate to my kickboxing

it doesn't really matter which one is better it's about the discipline, compassion and the ways of teaching and if the student is willing to follow or not, but personally i think muay thai because of it's ancient heritage and i just enjoy it
and undefeatedchamp should get out before saying stuff

Most mma fans now believe that kung fu sucks and is useless. So if your into mma, then i suggest you do muay thai, if your into drinking tea and spirituality, then go for wing chun/kung fu.

i have also studied both thia and kung fu and a couple of others. it depends on what u want the martial art for. i have found th kickoxing/ muay thia which i believe is a extremely effective marital art. it is use in rings around the world in different sports so it's proven to work. i havent seen kung fu used in a ring besides in movies
