Ip Man Wing Chun Hand Forms
Siu Lim Tao
Siu Lim Tao is the first form in Wing Chun Kuen. It teaches basic stance and stability in the lower body and correct positioning, co ordination and use of energy in the upper body.
The name "Siu Lim Tao" can be translated to mean little ideas form. It teaches us to remain humble and pay attention to the little details or basic principles in Wing Chun Kuen. It also teaches us basic techniques, how to build fundamental inner power and one inch energy, the ability to generate a lot of power in a short distance with minimal effort.
The second form teaches basic methods for stepping and turning combined with bridging deflecting and borrowing of the incoming force or energy from an opponent.
The third form focuses on two way energy and is only taught to loyal students of good moral and ethical standing who have achieved the advanced status. It is said that this form should "never leave the threshold" or always stay inside the school due to its serious and deadly nature.
