Your lineage won’t save you in a fight. Your attacker does not care who you learned from, or how authentic your Wing Chun is. He wants to destroy you, and the only thing that will save you, is your skill. It is all that matters. It is all that will ever matter.
Judge others, (if you must judge), by their skill and ability to use their art in real life situations. Do not quarrel over matters of lineage or small technical differences between your systems.
It is wasted energy that could better be used for developing and refining your own skill set. Make your Martial Arts…. and your life, results driven. Don’t get stuck in useless rituals which in the end, do nothing to further your true goal of becoming a better person and a better Martial Artist.
