master wong!!! "dis is da pwoblem!!"
even though hes studied and teaches legit what looks to be Pan Nam Foshun Style Wing Chin I can never tell if he's being serious or making farce with his videos. I like to play a drinking game with his videos, i chug every time he says "dis is da pwoblem!"
as for good wing chun, the ip man movies are fun n all but have next to no resemblance too real life or ip man's life either. but they are fun movies. personally, I think ip man did as much harm as he did good with his obsession with center line theory. Hong Kong wing chun, in my opinion due to that obsession, begins to loose bridging techniques to close the distance that remain with the mainland older version. it also doesn't address weapons well. a wing chun man is getting stabbed if he sticks to his stance and structure and doesn't get off the centerline and keep pressure on the assailants weapon.
as for aikido. akidos gone all new age anD weird. it's origins are based off thevfootwork and deflecting patterns of iaido (Japanese live blade techniques, different from kendo) they should get back into its roots and stop babbling about harmony and peace with your opponents. pakua has the same bs going on with it too, although it's origens are very different.
here's a guy who still does aikido with the right attitude.
I agree with the poster who mentioned Kali. A good school of Kali that really well rounded is the Inosoto/LaCoste Blend. it's basically dirty western boxing with a bunch of silat elbows and limb destruction (scissoring movements to smash up the arms known as guntings) mixed with jujitsu that's called dumog. lots of painful lock flows like the Egyptian, the Octopus and the Cheiftan. Mix that with a foundation of Kali Sayoc or Pikiti Tirsia to get a solid understanding of how to deal with edge and impact weapons.
inosanto/LaCoste Blend example.
example of Kali vs western boxing. you can see how it takes a western boxing foundation and adds the more combative and dirty elements to it.

Japenese JiuJitsu seems the only thing left of the original aikido.

Again your wrong. Being thrown into pavement would end a fight very fast. I guarantee you you don't know what you are talking about. There are also standing joint locks.
I can throw, trip, and reap legs break legs very quickly. When I got my sandan in judo I had to know all kinds of strikes as well as very quick throws using an opponents momentum. A simple kosoto gari would knock someone onconcious on pavement. That is a reap.
Boxers leave their lead leg out like a zombie. Just a little bit of knowledge knowing leg kicks ends his ability to move. A boxer needs to know how to check kicks to be effective against a guy who knows what he is doing.
Oh and mma knows every part of the game so that's a fail too.
I guarantee you even a highschool wrestler could beat many western mcdojo martial artists.
