I have been trained within both of the main Wing Chun family lineages. Both are unique and great
in their own perspective.
The Yip Man Hong Kong lineage is the most popular system in the U.S.A. this system is focuses on staying
up in the stand up combat range preffering to avoid ground fighting, which is the range of combat it is lacking in, so most
followers have to supplement their training with a Ground Fighting school.
The Hung Fa Yi lineage is very rare and unique within the U.S.A. there are only less than 5 Sifu's here
that are trained in this system in the US. Within this system I have noticed some slight differences also. This system is
very unique in that it traces its roots to the Shaolin Temple and the Red Boat Opera Boats. This system is very well suited
to stand up combat, seated combat, Combat on Ice/Wet floors and Ground Fighting.
