You would think UFC 1 would have told people what form works best on its own.
Karate? The Dane Cook of martial arts?

how do you come to the conclusion wing chun is stage fighting. cause it isnt. How'd you come to the conclusion wing chun was designed to defeat choy li fut? although theres an intense rivalry between the two, it wasnt developed to counter choi li fut. how,d you come to the conclusion jeet kun do is stage fighting and theatrical? most of modern jeet appears to be boxing, jujitsu and kali. none of those are theatrical.
wing chun is as viable as any other martial art when taught correctly. I always looked at it as Jook Lum light.
besides Si Lum Tao is a great body mechanics tutorial. I found its focus on elbow positioning very helpful in escrima for learning Redondo, abanico and a crap ton of other real world techniques.
hell one of its most classical techniques trained against the mook jong is a anti grappling technique. doubtful the wing chun guys know that, because of training and all, but its got a technique that will stop a shoot style takedown cold, and it doesn't even involve sprawling. plus it sets the guy up for a puter kapala or blood choke nicely.
