Wing Chun is a great fighting system, based on Simplicity, Direct, Economy Movement, Less use of strength and natural body movement to develop power, speed and efficiency. Wing chun basic / fundamental are provided us effective fighting method with principle, footwork, strength and better defensive technique.
The schematics and semantics vigor of Wing Chun is based on theory of triangulation. Triangulation involves the use of triangular shapes (eg. Pyramid, Triangles) gives stability to structures (can be our body structure). Wing Chun stance is sturdy because of TRIPOD structure which provides the platform to upper parts of body and in turn releases the strain of triangulated hands and arms. This will result in the diverging of incoming attacks, enables one to strike opponents effectively. The Angular Strength of our structure/shape provided by triangulation reduces the excess of muscular strength/strain and allowed to move quickly and freely from one position to another. In Basic have many contain to practice.
The first form, “Siu Lim Tao”, (meaning little idea or small thought) is the seed from which the whole system will grow. As a tree that needs strong roots to hold it up, so the first form and all the concepts held within it, must be fully understood in order for a student to progress successfully.
Tao divided in 3 part with a dissimilar prominence on each, its target is achieve the best stance and triangulation with arms that can perform self-sufficiently. To this end many of steps are performed on one hand at a time whilst the other hand is kept isolated in the set (prepared) position. The opening of stance has shown us correct way to discover the body gate and stance.
