Defence agaisnt Wing Chun

What is the most effective defence against a Wing Chun practitioner?

I know Wing Chun features punching quite heavily and has a very efficient defence itself but I am interested to know how to counter a Wing Chun attack effectively.

My initial thoughts are to try and ground the attacker as I do not believe Wing Chun features much (if any) ground-work or defence against takedowns or to try and catch them with a counter-attack as they are advancing. I predict there could be trouble with the counter-attack method though due to the tight Wing Chun defence.

My style is a combination of Tae Kwon-Do, Taijutsu/Jujutsu and Capoeira.

Any advice appreciated.
