Buick Yip: Stories of Wing Chun #01, Biu Jee Footwork

The following took place many years ago, I think it is about time to share.

Me and my American Akita, Chat Chin, used to walk to the fountain in Tsimshatsui East in Kowloon at nights where it is spacious to run, that night, we chased each other, dogs run faster than human, when I am losing him, I whistled and turned back, he took over the chase.
