One who's highly skilled is one art is just as good as one who's highly skilled in several.

There's a proverb that says, "I respect not a man that practices a thousand techniques one time but I respect a man that practices one technique a thousand times."

Whatever you're ready and willing to discipline yourself in it'll reveal itself to you. One thing though. If you want to practice Wing Chun be prepared to deal with what it takes to become skilled in it.

Take care
I live in Chicago.Whats the best way to find teachers with the best credentials,and what should I look out for?
