Nim Tao Wing Chun

Siu Nim Tao

Siu Nim Tao (Little Idea) is the first form of Wing Chun. As its name suggests it aims at developing the student’s subconscious idea power. It achieves this through deep relaxation and applied intent when practicing the form. The movements themselves are based on straight lines and circular rotations. Since the practitioner remains stationary, the form develops the student’s stance, mind and body weight focus towards the centreline, subconscious idea power and body awareness.

Tips for practicing
  • Raise up through your spine to release your back muscles
  • Aim your entire body mass to a point on the centreline out in front of you
  • Keep releasing your muscles and joints continuously as you move
  • Practice slowly and steadily
  • Let your mind relax and let distraction disappear on it's own
  • Enjoy the bliss whilst you move your joints
