    In the first section of Siu Lim Tao, you should practice as slowly as possible for at least ten to twelve minutes each day. In the beginning when you study, you take forty-five minutes to do the Siu Lim Tao. The hand on the clock moves faster than your own hand. This training is very hard, particularly on the legs, which start to shake, but afterwards you feel good. It works this way. The longer you practise in this way, the better stance you will develop and your Sticking Hands will improve because your footwork will be strong and steady. It is logical I consider. So the longer, the better.

    In the first part of Siu Lim Tao, you have to keep your body still and your back straight so that the Qi sinks to the Dantien. The chest and shoulders should be relaxed and the hands should have very little energy, just enough to keep the position when you are moving forwards and withdrawing the hands. However, when you need to use strength, such as in Jut Sau, you should use it, but you must relax before you use the energy. Once you are finished using the power, you must relax again. This is the principle of Wing Chun and you must follow this in order to be successful. Main principles are very important for you to know.
