Biu Jee - Huen Sau with Pivot

In this clip we see Sigung (Chu Shong Tin) teaching the pivot and Huen Sau from Biu Jee. A recurring theme in much of his teaching is to use one’s centre of mass to drive a movement. The arm should not push on the contact point, rather the whole body should move as an integrated unit. To achieve this one must resist the urge to use force. Personally, I think that is the basis of Siu Nim Tao.
Sigung said ‘the purpose of Siu Nim Tao is to train one’s mind to accept the idea of not using force’.
Often students get caught up in the technicalities of a movement and neglect that first, all important concept.
