Wing Chun; Who Cares?

I guess I’m a funny beast because of the way I see things.

Take Wing Chun for example.  So many people practicing and teaching this martial art.  So many claiming to have the real or true skill.  Who cares?

Honestly, I used to; however, I don’t anymore.  I mean, seriously: we’re standing on a rock, that rotates around the sun, that floats in space.  We’re all going to die one day.  So, seriously, I don’t take it all too seriously.

What’s the defining factor in a martial art?  Principles?  The ability to make robots out of students?  Or functionality – whatever that may look like?

We’re all expressing our learned skill through our personal experiences.  And I think that’s a beautiful thing.
