Chum Kiu is the second form in the Wing Chun Kung Fu system. This form teaches the dynamic application of the techniques learned in Wing Chun’s first form Siu Lim Tao. While the first form teaches the correct structure of the attacks and defensive movements, it is in Chum Kiu that the student learns to “seek the bridge” and use both hands simultaneously, such as one hand defending while the other attacks.
