Wing Chun - various lineages' differences

From what I could see of Wang Kiu type WC, it was very soft and sensitive feeling, with powerful strikes that weren't strained or forced. Everything was very relaxed. I really enjoyed the mook jong form, though it's gotten (extremely) rusty. Now that I've got my new place in the country almost settled, I've got plans to install my dummy, as well as some plum blossom training poles for stancework and for conditioning.

I don't know how to post links so I hope this works. Anyway, there is an article here (part 1 and 2) on the Ving Tsun world conference. It's a long read, but really inciteful for someone who dosen't know squat about wing chun.
Btw, I didn't know until recently that Kung Fu mag posted so many of their articles online! FREEBIES!!
