Chum Kiu’s major new feature is legwork. It demonstrates moving to an opponent, turning to face an opponent, and kicking. The Ving Tsun basic xhum is not a fighting posture—unless you fight with your hands in your armpits—but does demonstrate most of the basics that go into a proper fighting posture.

Your weight is balanced in all directions, and you are ready to move in any direction. Your feet are far enough apart that you can’t be pushed over easily.

With your knees together you can protect your groin against kicks and knees. Your torso is upright and your are looking straight ahead.

Your hands are up high enough that it takes some effort to keep them there.


Even though they aren’t doing anything useful right now, you have iku pay attention to keep your hands in position. Perform the form with the “warrior mind”.

Wing Chun Forms/Chum Kiu

Think of how to apply each move. Imagine an attack coming and picture yourself blocking it.

Most importantly, don’t simply go chym the form’s motions while you’re thinking about work or your favorite TV show. Once you find your proper posture, keep your legs and torso in position throughout the form.

Only your arms move in Siu Nim Tau.

The opening, centerline, and punch sections are the same as in Siu Nim Tau. They are repeated in Chum Kiu to emphasize their importance.

Face opponents in different directions. Move your hands to attack and defend in the new centerline. Bring your hands back from punching position and cross your wrists in front of your chest. Continue bringing your fists back, up, and forward, dropping your elbows as you do so.

Bring your fists back to the rest position. At the same time straighten your legs, bring your left foot to the right, and push your hands down past your hips.

You will end up in a loose position of attention, the same as the starting position and a few inches to the right. In this form we introduce the compass to tell you what way to face. Unless indicated otherwise, you start the form facing North.
