Wing Chun Form – Chum Kiu

Wing Chun Form – Chum Kiu

Chum Kiu (or “Seeking the Bridge”) is the second form taught in Wing Chun. This form is also known as Chum Kil, etc. However, please be aware that the movements used in this form can vary between Wing Chun schools.

According to the Samuel Kwok Wing Chun Association, the benefits of learning Chum Kiu include “Practice using the turning or Yiu Ma”, “Introduces kicking techniques”, “Introduces Biu Ma”, improves “balance” and students “will learn to coordinate 2 way energy along side movement”.

For other forms, please visit the main Wing Chun Forms section. If you are looking for forms from other martial arts styles (i.e. the kata of Shotokan Karate), please visit Black Belt Wiki’s main Kata & Forms section.
