Wing Chun Forms – Biu Gee
Fourth Form in the Jee Shin Wing Chun System
As it suggests, this form trains the method of deadly finger striking and correct breathing for concentrated sharp bursts of energy.
In other terms, wing chun kung fu culminates in the art of DIM MAK (pressure point striking)
When the fingers contact the target, the wrist must turn one way or the other to deflect the reactionary force with the fingertip’s pivoting into the point of contact. Without turning the wrist inward or outward the finger joints will be subject to severe damage from the force of impact. Concentration and the generation of power when striking are the keys to performing successful Bill Jee. Therefore, strength and flexibility of the wrists is imperative for the execution of Biu Gee, which is developed in the wing chun form, Sil Lum Tao.
The general target areas of the body are the pressure points of the upper torso, being the centre line and the blind side, throat and eyes. The legs and back also have vulnerable areas for attack.
Bill Gee also trains the principle of Pursuit and Retreat, where we train the concept of Fut Sao.
Lastly, the art of thrusting fingers once mastered becomes a deadly tool and the practitioner should only use this technique in emergency situations.
At this level of training, chi development, coordinated breathing and intention and pressure point location is an essential aspect of understanding Biu Gee.
