@Aristos -- if you know the answer, please, provide it. It sounds like you know something I do not.

Well, I hope you get the magical answer you are looking for, but I am not holding my breath.

@Aristos, I respect and understand what you are saying, but for some things, THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS. Not until we enter the Age of the Matrix and we can do high-speed, intensive training of the neurons and nerves.

@Tomas Real, traditional wing chun, with a traditional instructor? 5-10 years. With an instructor who thinks it's all about fighting, then you'll be learning how to fight with a wing chun flavor - you won't be learning wing chun - and you'll be ready quickly.

comment Are there musical instruments which, when practiced, noticeably increase martial arts skills and performance?
Is this the part where we also bring up Capoeira? :)

comment Wing chun modification with only palm heel strikes?
@Tomas No, that's not what I'm saying. But if you study a martial art, you will most likely NOT be combat-ready for at least five years - most probably ten. If you study something like Krav Maga, you will be combat-ready in months.

@stslavik I don't see your point. There is a difference.

comment What does the closed fist covered by open hand signify?
@stslavik I'm not saying you're wrong.. Just that you are casting judgment on another member of the community, and that is not a good thing.

@stslavik You're being a little too cynical, I think.

Hah. Were you to walk into my school, we'd see. Every student is different. I'm just surprised that you don't start with a salute indicating that the process has started.

@stslavik Not contradictory. The term 'martial arts' is a misnomer. They should be called something like 'system of complete development of the human being', but it doesn't really roll off the tongue as well. A fighting style / fighting method is not a martial art, as it only teaches you how to hurt other people.
