Sharing of Siu Lim Tao

Ving Tsun Kung Fu consists of three hand forms, namely, Siu Lim Tao (Small Idea), Chum Kiu (Seeking for Bridge) and Biu Jee (Shooting Fingers), a wooden dummy form (Mook Yan Jong), a staff form (Luk Dim Boon Gwan), a knife form (Bot Tsam Dao) and other skills. Ways to master those skills varies, yet the two most vital elements to success are consistent practice and a good sifu (Kung Fu master) who can guide students through the whole training process.

Siu Lim Tao is the first form of the Ving Tsun Kung Fu system. The form is short and simple so lots of Ving Tsun practitioners tend to ignore the importance of it. Indeed, this form is short and the moves are simple, yet, it is the “seeds” of the whole Ving Tsun System. Like ABC in English, Siu Lim Tao is the building blocks of all advanced forms. For instance, the stance “Yee Chi Kim Yeung Ma” in Siu Lim Tao is a kind of “Nei Gong” practice. The purpose of the stance is to strengthen our foot works and to build up our internal energy flow. Only with that energy built up we can maintain our skills and power through the rest of our lives. After consistent practice of Siu Lim Tao, students can start training on Single Sticking Hands, Double Sticking Hands and other free fight techniques.

Practitioners should never forget to keep both elbows close to the centerline of the bodies and should never keep the muscle groups tense and tight because it is the key to success. When the muscle groups are relaxed, the shoulders, elbows, and wrists can easily be controlled to perform all sorts of moves and to generate a sudden burst of power. That particular kind of power is commonly known as “Inch Punch.” Only when power and moves are nicely combined can the skills of Ving Tsun be fully utilized.

For the majority Kung Fu systems, the punches and kicks usually involve extensive body movements. Big body movements help generating power, yet the gap between two moves are far too big and easy for opponents to launch counter attacks. On the other hand, the moves in Ving Tsun Kung Fu are more simple and direct for it always takes the shortest route to hit the opponents. Thus, a well-trained Ving Tsun practitioner should post no problems in self-defending.
