I love boxing. I watch it and just love it and its history. I also train in Wing Chun. Would it be bad to train in boxing and still do my Wing Chun?

If your body can cope with the added practises and your mind doesn’t gets muddled up with the two different styles, I say why not?

Go for it and best of luck!

Not at all, just don’t get used to the looping hooks on a wing chun guy or he’ll bust you in the nose (thats what happened to me). Its great for MMA fights to be good at clinch range with wing chun and good at strike range with boxing. GO FOR IT!

Since they are both Punching styles, they might collide with each other, because they have different concepts on how to punch so its like learning two ways to punch when really you will probably only use one. But you can still do it just wouldn’t make much sense because they both are boxing styles.

Not at all.

In fact, your boxing may enhance your Wing Chun and vice versa.

The only problem is like the other guy said, the two fighting styles will differ on some points. Boxing might tell you to throw power punches and hooks to his face while Wing Chun tells you to pummel with less power but much greater speed, and at his chest.

Six months of boxing sparring and your wing chun class will be scared of you.

Consider that all mixd martial artists today take boxing.
