Cham Kiu (尋橋)

Cham Kiu, or the bridge seeking form, is the second empty hand form of the Ving Tsun system. It can be thought for as the word formation level.  When combined with Chi Sau it adds to the  language of combat that is unique to Ving Tsun.

 

Cham Kiu is essentially Siu Nim Tau in motion.  Where the concepts of stepping and pivoting, kicking and subtle hand variations are drilled.

Cham Kiu reinforces the idea of attacking the opponent (Joi Ying)  instead of chasing the hands (Joi Sau).
