We still haven't seen Wing Chun in MMA, but this guy claims it can prevent all takedowns

Most of you have no clue what Wing Chun is. Before you go to your local Szechuan Garden to order some, you should probably know that Wing Chun is a close-combat Kung Fu that’s been around longer than Randy Couture has been winning fights in the UFC. Originally designed for self-defense by women in China, the discipline was most notably showcased in Bruce Lee’s films and gained further notoriety in international competitions throughout the world. Those are a lot of big words, but it’s Thursday, and you have the whole weekend to look them up. I have faith in you.

While our good friend Shawn Obasi is the only person we know that openly practices Wing Chun in MMA, we’ve never actually seen the art being used effectively (or even at all) in the UFC. Even when Obasi fought Bloodstain Lane in the cage, Lane used takdowns to essentially nullify his striking. Don’t worry, we already found the video of the match for you. Basically what we’re trying to say is in Wing Chun — there simply is no answer for the takedown. It’s impossible to prevent it with this close-combat martial art, yet we’ve found a video of a guy named Master Wong insisting that Wing Chun can be used to stop the takedown. Check it out below.
