Editorial Reviews

Sil Nim Tao (The Foundation): This is the first in a series of videos presented by the Ving Tsun Museum on the Yip Man system. Instructed by Museum founder Master Benny Meng. This video presents a curriculum based on the compiled Siu Nim Tau level of knowledge from many Grand Masters trained by the late Grand Master Yip Man. It examines the motions and techniques, forms and body mechanics, attributes, concepts and tactics, and applications. This tape expresses the Siu Nim Tao as the text book of the system. Each motion of the form is explained within the context of the Cantonese Chinese meaning. The information is presented in several formats throughout the video - solo, partner demonstration, and application - giving you a chance to see the simplicity, directness, and efficiency of this Wing Chun lineage.

Let me first say that this dvd is a compliation of 2 vhs tapes so the $30 price tag is not totally unwarranted. However I thought the material was geared towards instruction when in fact it is just a seminar and demonstration of drills on the first form but does not even attempt to teach you the form. In fact when showing the complete form the camera angle changes quickly if as to not give one a complete view of the form so one could just practice what one could make out. In addition I don't know how fair it is to claim that many instructors contributed to the dvd when only one instructor and his student are present but the instructor did study with the other masters. But it is not like they are presented here nor is any distinction made as to one master's view versus another master.

I don't feel like I wasted my money because in the future I hope to learn the form and the information provided was quite useful but only if you know the form already.
