VT BASIC FORMS
SIU NIM TAU
The first form in the Ving Tsun system, Siu Nim Tau is translated as “Little Idea”. This form is regarded in many circles as the gem of Ving Tsun as it proudly boasts its claim as an essential form that builds internal energy. Body structure, centerline theory and the entire system is found within this form. This is the foundation and building block of martial skill.
Chum Kiu is the 2nd form learned as it translates to”Seeking Bridge”. To many the fun starts here, due to its moving nature. This form builds the students coordination and balance along with teaching core values in combative theory and bridging the gap between you and the opponent. This highly dynamic form utilizes advanced footwork and builds power.
Last is Biu Jee a.k.a “Darting Fingers”. Often mysterious in nature due to the various plays within lineages. Biu Jee highlights fast movements for short and long range situations and only comes out to play when one finds themselves in “emergency” situations. In essence what to do when the center line has been compromised. Two words, Fast n Furious!
