As an old fart (and huge Lee fan), I've considered Wing Chun a few times over the last couple years.

My old man has been busting my balls because he was a fitness nut in his middle age and I'm not. After his quintuple bypass, I'm suddenly thinking a bit more about kicking my circulatory system into gear.

I'd have to drive an hour to get to the nearest class twice a week after work, though.

I go about an hour out of my way to Oakland to get to my wing chun school now because I got hooked on it back when I worked in the East Bay and the location was super convenient.  Now it's not convenient any more but I'd rather suffer the BART ride over there twice a week than try to find another good school.  

Been practicing about 5 years now and feel like I'm on the cusp of knowing what I'm doing, AMA.   awesome, for real

I think the specific class/teacher is a lot more important than the actual style though.

100% Agree.  If you can find an instructor that your kid meshes well with it makes all the difference.  My one kid was really into it until his instructor moved out of town.  The new instructor had a much different teaching style and his interest tanked shortly after.  Also finding a class that has kids in a broad age group is really helpful.  You still get the mentoring from the older kids and adults but also have some similar aged kids to spar with as well as younger kids for your kid to mentor as they get more experienced.

Man, just watch your trans fats, get checked up,  and get some cardio. If you're super-feeling the Wing Chun, it'll make it itself worth the time. Or you could do some Wang Chung.
