What It’s About:
This DVD explores the advanced form and final form of the Wing Chun system, Known as Bil Jee and the sixteen kicking techniques, Qi Gong and Pressure Point Strikes.
In other reviews given on the web for this DVD, which is the third in Sifu Goh’s, series on Wing Chun Kung Fu, was given three stars out of five as a rating. But I would have to disagree. The only short coming of this instructional piece is that its running time for play back is only twenty-six minutes max. But, if you’re an experienced practitioner in this martial art, you won’t have any trouble in following along or understanding what is done. This DVD is not for the beginner, although one could mimic the moves. However, if your first and second form performance is below par then forget the criticism and practice so more! Read Full Post
What it’s about:
This DVD primarily provides visual instruction in the second form of the Wing Chun system of martial arts, which is known as Chum Ku.
If a student has reached this level of training then the purpose of this form would be clear. It is the form which begins to allow the student to bridge the gap between technique leading to more physical movement and contact with the opponent. Although, some of this is experienced in the preparatory drills and exercises with a partner in the first form, its emphasis is noticeably different. It’s an important form because its structure is built on the Si Lim Tao form and provides the basis for more complex techniques using the elbow and basic kicks Read Full Post
Simply stated the “Siu Nim Tau” DVD by Sifu David Peterson is a painstaking labor of love that is a meticulously thorough, in-depth seminar reviewing the revered late Wong Shun Leung’s Siu Nim Tau. Emphasis on the thoroughness of the seminar cannot be overstated. Sifu Peterson spends well over three hours covering theory, modifications, points, applications and the many ideas behind Siu Nim Tau that Sifu Wong acquired through his vast experience with Biemo. The seminar is actually a set of two DVDs: the first DVD covers the first two sections of the form, while the second DVD finishes out the form and then shows a question and answer session, drills and the form itself without commentary.

The “Devastating Chi Sao Crossing Hands System 2” DVD by Sifu Lam is a continuation in Lam’s exploration of Wong Shun Leung Wing Chun and focuses on advanced Chi Sao. Sifu Lam classifies the techniques or actions presented on the DVD as level 2. The most important idea behind the DVD is control of the opponent rather than striking the opponent. This is accomplished by use hand techniques, sweeps, kicks and the body itself. Read Full Post

He states that during ancient times it was regarded as the most coveted and considered as the most secret form of the Wing Chun system.
