Ving Tsun includes everything that you need for fighting. The system doesn’t require any special acrobatic skills, but pursues the goal of immobilising and putting the enemy out of action in a simple manner and shortest period of time.
The forms in wing Chun are a set routine of techniques, practiced solo, specifically designed to develop a certain behaviour, concepts and principles and act as a point of reference for the practitioner.
Wing Chun has 3 empty hand forms:
Sil Lim Tao (Young Idea)
Is a group of all Ving-Tsun moves and is the basis for all other following forms.
Chum Kiu (Seeking the Bridge)
Trains combinations of moves, turns, kicks and steps and serves the purpose to defeat the enemy with simple tools.
Biu Gee (Pointing Fingers)
You learn this form to escape from apparent hopeless situations. Amongst other things this form includes fighting strategies that allows you to protect yourself against multiple enemies.
