Absolutely! Fitness & confidence build with your training every time, it also makes you much calmer in a situation when you know exactly
what you're gonna do when the angry caveman comes rushing at you with the classic big hook or an attempt to get you to the floor - Wing Chun is not a
grapple art, in real life avoid the floor at all costs because you never know how many of his mates are waiting to stamp on your head.
My 15 yr old son came training with me tonight for his first time. He's been a rugby player since age 6 and he's 6' tall with a decent build so not
a walkover in any way. He totally loved it, learned a few easy releases, foot traps and the like, but the best bit was us partnering up with focus
pads and taking turns with chase and multiple punch moves at each other. Sweaty adrenaline and testosterone fuelled training which we both loved. My
teacher doesn't allow minors in our club due to the possible litigation BS from parents if there are any injuries, but as it's my son though, and
we've been friends for years, he knows that kind of thing is not a worry from us.
I would never want to get into the tired old argument of 'my martial art is better than yours' etc, so will only say that any art practised
regularly will give you an advantage over the average drunken stupid single hook brawlers you are likely to meet in a bar or whatever
Try a few different places and see what suits you, I'm sure you will never regret it.
