The Siu Nim Tau form teaches you how to build up your structure and achieve a relaxed state, which is necessary for the proper generation of force and the development of Wing Chun's 'Power of Relaxation'. The three most basic handwork of Wing Chun, the tan sau, bong sau and fook sau, form part of the arc of a circle or sphere. These movements are performed through the rotation of the circle at its centre, such as the ball joint in the shoulder. As a spherical shape can withstand a much stronger external impact than any other shape, these movements are highly effective for attacking and defending in a self defence scenario. Wing Chun's movements are initiated through the rotation of the ball joint in the shoulder as opposed to the pushing of the hand, which would cause the Wing Chun exponent to tense up their shoulder and restrict their movement.

Siu-Lim-Tao also trains the student to generate forces from the center line Chung-Sien. All the basic hand movements used in Wing-Chun are contained in Siu-Lim-Tao, although the leg movements are reduced to their most elementary components during the opening of the stance at the beginning of the form.
If you are anything like me you are an ever-searching wing chun practitioner. You want to be the best YOU that you can possibly be. You feel that maybe your master is holding something back from you. And you may be right. And shows you wrong things, but practices differently to keep you down. I am sure it is simply that he does not know any better. Just go and watch any tutorial on Siu Nim Tao on Youtube or anywhere else on the internet.
