First form of Wing Chun. An exercise practiced stationary throughout, it concentrates on training stability, balance, correct elbow position, protection of the centerline, linking the structure, economy of movement in attack/defense, and the development of chuen ging (inch power).
Empty Hand: Seeking Bridge
This second form teaches correct footwork and hand positions to avoid direct confrontation with an opponent’s force. It teaches passiveness, rather than fighting force head-on. Kicks are introduced in this form in conjunction with footwork.
Empty Hand: Shooting Fingers
Final empty hand form comprised of mostly attacking techniques. An extremely dangerous form. Its aim is to attack vital points of the body. Due to the inherent danger of this form, it is rarely used in student sparring practice and is mainly reserved for emergencies.

With sufficient training on the Tri-Podial, the student will build leg strength and balance.
