Krav Maga vs Wing Chun – Which is Better?

It seems that every week I her someone ask the question: Krav Maga vs Wing Chun – Which is better? The other day I was watching an episode of Human Weapon on TV. Krav Maga was the martial arts style that was spotlighted. Krav Maga uses factors of Wing Chun and other martial arts forms together into a useful arrangement of noncompetitive self defense. From the perspective of a Wing Chun practitioner, I was especially interested in the explosion of Krav Maga as a self defense technique against a descending knife thrust. My friends and I were awestruck—none of us had never witnessed this kind of resistance in any martial art. But lo and behold, this defensive move was taken right out of Wing Chun! Maybe this was Krav Maga Wing Chun we were watching?

Fak-Da of Wing Chun

In Wing Chun the kind of defense we witnessed is known as Fak-Da, and it’s performed by stepping into the attack. On the other hand the Krav Maga exploding defense is excellent when you have many attackers assaulting you at the same time. krav maga wing chun Lakeland?

The risk is that you need to crash the assailant with the hit on the throat or else he will just keep returning to you again.  But I find it interesting to blend Fak-Da with Jik-Tek by aiming at the knee of the assailant. krav maga wing chun Lakeland?

Method of Israeli warfare training

Krav Maga first originated as a method of Israeli warfare training, but is rapidly turning out to become very popular as a self defense method with both law enforcement as well as the civilians all over the globe. krav maga wing chun Lakeland?

Fundamental principle of Krav Maga

The fundamental principle of Krav Maga is not standing and fighting, but to immobilize the assailant till you are able to escape.  Krav Maga can be picked up and applied by anybody.  In the US students as well as housewives are utilizing the working out to defend themselves, their associates as well as their families. krav maga wing chun Lakeland?

The self-confidence derived from Krav Maga instruction may perhaps, paradoxically, in fact assist to evade the want to employ it.  The training assists students distinguish and stay away from any potential situation which could turn out to be dangerous.  But, in case a student faces such a situation, then they are able to be calm as they are well aware that they can protect themselves. krav maga wing chun Lakeland?

My Vote is for Krav Maga Wing Chun Lakeland

Even though Krav Maga and Wing Chun has all the above positive merits, I would vote for krav maga wing chun Lakeland.

There is quite a lot of reasons for this and the most important one among them is that Wing Chun includes all levels of internal and external discipline, self defense, and an all level systematic soft and hard real combat defense. There are alot of situations that cause for real self defense being used and Wing Chun covers some of the best that Chinese Martial Arts has offered for over 5,000 years.krav maga wing chun? Krav uses factors of Wing Chun and other martial art forms together with into a useful arrangement of noncompetitive self defense.  For Modern combat Wing Chun prepares a person to face a real world combat situation. It prepares you to respond calculated reactions to everything without thinking.

Wing Chun provides quicker strikes as well as quicker counterattacks.  Wing Chun trains you to apply Qing or Ki which is the transmitting of energy from the practitioner’s legs by means of the power of the body. This helps in adding strength in addition to weight into the hits, thrusts as well as blocks. The Martial arts of Wing Chun is all concerning Ging, strength by itself is not adequate to fight. krav maga wing chun Lakeland?

Most importantly Wing Chun teaches you that POWER and STRENGTH alone without true understanding of structure, rooting, relaxation to tension and proper body mechanics is key.krav maga wing chun?

Not every school is equal

Just because you choose the “style or type” of martial art system you now want to study doesn’t mean your job is over and you should choose the closest one.  In fact now you have to visit every school and do every trial for at least a week or two each before you settle and officially start your training. krav maga wing chun? Krav uses factors of Wing Chun and other martial art forms together with into a useful arrangement of noncompetitive self defense. Measure twice cut once my grandfather once said to me, this goes for training as well.  If you pick the closest school you may find yourself years behind on training.  This is not to say that every Wing Chun school teaches you these lessons or that every Krav Maga school does either.  It is the teacher of the school that makes the difference in your outcome with the right teacher and instruction you will soar.

Our choice is Wing Chun, but you should try it out for yourself every school is different and the one that teaches you realistic self defense should be the choice you take.
