Chum Kiu - "Searching the Bridge"

Artist's Rendering of Yim Wing Chun

Artist's Rendering of Yim Wing Chun, first master of Wing Chun Kung Fu

Chum Kiu is the second hand form. It teaches you how to move with power. It teaches you to unify the movement of your hands and feet. As the name implies it also affords an understanding of the "bridge". The bridge is the first point of contact between two opponents. (i.e a punch intercepted, a grasped hand etc... ) Once contact has been established the hands and feet react as one to "Search" or travel the bridge. Through refinement, techniques employed become automatic and explosive.
