Wing Chun Sil Lim Tao Form

Sil Lim Tao is your Master Plan for the Wing Chun Kung Fu System
Sil Lim TaoÂ is the first form in theÂ Wing Chun systemÂ and incorporates most of the concepts and principles of theÂ wing chun system. TheÂ Sil Lim Tao FormÂ is imperative to master because it developsÂ simultaneous coordination of the limbsÂ and cultivates power and chi development.
Effectively, SLT is the Alphabet of theÂ Wing Chun System.
Wing ChunÂ Sil Lim Tao gives you correct position, direction of energy for all your movements when using techniques in yourÂ Wing Chun system.
It does not matter whether you are using single hand or double handed techniques, Sil Lim Tao will give you the correct placement of the hands.
If you are unsure of the hand positions when applying techniques, all you have to do is find where they are in theÂ Wing Chun Sil Lim TaoÂ and apply them as they are executed in the form.
This is especially important for beginners when using central line techniques. Beginners should become very familiar with their Sil Lim Tao hand positions to enable correct placement of body and hands when using two arms in technique. The correct positions can be confusing for a beginners, but having an understanding of the Sil Lim Tao will give them a huge advantage.
When advanced students are introduced to new forms such asÂ Chum KieuÂ andÂ Biu Gee, theÂ correct placementÂ of using two hands with footwork can also become confusing. Once again a student only has to revert back to the Sil Lim Tao, find the positions and apply them to the newÂ Wing Chun Form.
This also applies when being introduced to new, two handedÂ Wing Chun TechniquesÂ such as Quan sao, Tan Garn Sao and Larn Garn Sao. Use your âAlphabetâ as a reference for the new techniques which will enable you to apply the correct body positions.
An architect will always design a draft of a building, bridge etc, before construction can begin.
The builder will take that blue print and refer to it through every step of the construction.
The same must apply to aÂ Wing Chun practitionerÂ when applyingÂ Wing Chun Techniques. The mind should always think back to the âPlanâ, Sil Lim Tao Form, and use it as a reference to apply correct positioning and placement of hands for successful application.
