Adam demonstrated some of the difference between other martial arts that many people see regularly and Wing Chun. He stated that Wing Chun is taught more for self defense and not for competitions because it is a street fighting style martial arts. It is a style of martial arts that focuses on efficiency, mentality, grounding and leverage. The style of this art is less on a physical ability and more on using your opponent’s energy and movements against them.
