Wing Chun is actually a very lethal fighting style. One of the principles is to never hold back, which is why they encourage to "fight without fighting". Solve problems without violence, because if you do get into a fight, dont hold back. Of course the movie is just a movie, but the first Ip Man movie does show the most realistic Wing Chun so far. That said, it's not a style for show and it wouldnt make a good movie to show real Wing Chun.

Also the legend of how Wing Chun was founded may just be a legend. But it has a message, of women's empowerment, and feminine power for men and women. So if they do have a Wing Chun character in DOA, it wouldn't be that BS of fighting over a man (which is the opposite of the legend). Btw I'm a Win Chun user. Ip Man's family spells it Ving Tsun in roman characters so that it wont have the same initials as Water Closet.




That's awesome, I saw somewhere online that WC is different amongst the users like your master's WC might be different from your WC, is it true?


Anyway in your honest opinion you think a Wing Chun user might be possible in DOA?


What is unique about Wing Chun is that it is not really a style. It is a system to develop your own kung fu. You are guided by principles, and the techniques and exercises are there to practice those principles. They are like a compass. They point you north, but you dont always have to go north. So you will have your own style, but based on Wing Chun. In the Ip Man family you learn from your brothers and sisters more than the master, because if the master teaches you, chances are you will just mimic him/her rather than learn for yourself.

And about Bruce Lee. He was only a teenager when he had to leave China and Ip Man. He didn't finish learning the system. But since he had nothing in the USA, he had to make a living somehow, and USA wasn't familiar with kung fu at the time, so he started teaching Kung Fu. And because he didnt finish learning, he had to learn what he could. So he started challenging martial artists, and those who defeated him he would make friends with and learn from them. He took whatever he saw worked (for him) and made it his own style. In his arrogance, and ignorance, he would bash Wing Chun thinking it was useless, and his style was better, and he would promote his way of learning. His first student would later call Jeet Kun Do, which Bruce Lee didn't like. Bruce Lee did become wiser over the years, and his Jeet Kun Do would become more like Wing Chun. Close to his death he started wishing he could return to continue learning Wing Chun with the Ip Man family. Ironically he never learned that Wing Chun is just a method of learning your own style, which Bruce Lee did in his own way. He thought of closing down his schools, but he never got the chance before dying.

In a similar way that Wing Chun is difficult to properly represent in a movie, it's also difficult to have in a game. Probably even more-so. But games mainly just have moves that look like the techniques. So they could just take some of the movies from the Ip Man movies. Btw, the one inch punch is from Wing Chun, that's how the normal punch is supposed to be.
