Samuel Kwok - Mastering Wing Chun - Ip Man's Kung Fu Vol 1 - Siu Lim Tao
Siu Lim Tao is the first hand form of the Wing Chun Kung Fu system. The form teaches the correct hand and arm positions for attack and defense. Development and use of energy are the focus of Siu Lim Tao training.
In this informative DVD, Grandmaster Samuel Kwok teaches the correct method of performing the form as handed down by Ip Man, and gives the student the foundation of the Ip Man Wing Chun Kung Fu method. Instruction includes the correct method of performing the form, as well as training methods and the application of each technique.
Samuel Kwok - Mastering Wing Chun - Ip Man's Kung Fu Vol 2 - Chum Kiu
Chum Kiu is the second form in the Wing Chun Kung Fu system. This form teaches the dynamic application of the techniques learned in Wing Chun's first form, Siu Lim Tao.
While the first form teaches the correct structure of the attacks and defensive movements, it is in Chum Kiu that the student learns to "seek the bridge" and use both hands simultaneously, such as one hand defending while the other attacks. Chum Kiu teaches stepping and footwork, and also Wing Chun's specialized kicking method and the generation of power through the correct method of using the entire body in stance turning (Yiu Ma).
In this DVD, Grandmaster Kwok also demonstrates and explains in detail the use of Wing Chun's devastating short-range power.
Samuel Kwok - Mastering Wing Chun - Ip Man's Kung Fu Vol 3 - Biu Gee
Biu Gee, ("thrusting fingers",) also known as "first aid hand," is the last hand form taught in the Ip Man Wing Chun system. Biu Gee training is one of the keys to learning to focus energy into a strike. Biu Gee also develops devastating striking power by combining focused strikes with the rotational energy developed by correct stance turning (Yiu Ma), as learned in the previous training of the Chum Kiu form.
Another key of Biu Gee training is to train the hands to regain the center if the centerline is lost or unguarded. The Biu Gee form teaches two unique methods of footwork, the use of "two direction energy" and how to control the opponent and effectively use continuous striking movements.
In this DVD, Grandmaster Kwok demonstrates the proper method of training this devastating form. It is the complete training in all three forms that allows the student to correctly apply Wing Chun in Chi Sao as well as in the Wooden Dummy Training.
Samuel Kwok - Mastering Wing Chun - Ip Man's Kung Fu Vol 4 - Chi Sao
This is a unique and refreshing insight into the Chi Sao element of Ip Man's original Wing Chun Kung Fu.
In this DVD, all the major drills and trapping theories are investigated with explosive applications. You will learn the techniques of Chi Sao: basic hand techniques, single hand and double hand drills, and footwork, correct body structure alignment, body turning, etc...
Chi Sao constitutes the most important training method in the Wing Chun system. It is what Ip Man referred to as the Genius of Wing Chun. Training in Chi Sao will help you develop contact reflexes, which is the key to victory in a live combat situation. Chi Sao training develops close quarter coordination and close quarter focus; improves mobility, balance, timing, and accuracy, and creates ample targets and openings in which to attack and counter.
Samuel Kwok - Mastering Wing Chun - Ip Man's Kung Fu Vol 5 - Wooden Dummy
The Wing Chun wooden training dummy is a training device designed to correct technique and structure as well as increase power, speed, accuracy, and conditioning.
You'll learn the true, original Ip Man's Wing Chun wooden dummy form from Grandmaster Samuel Kwok.
This DVD is a complete step-by-step guide to the wooden dummy hand techniques, leg applications and footwork. All the original sections are demonstrated clearly from start to finish, in different camera angles to facilitate easy and accurate learning.
There is also a general commentary and description of each segment and its most common training mistakes, to improve not only your technique, but your level of understanding.
In addition to teaching the skills on the wooden dummy, Grandmaster Samuel Kwok demonstrates the applications of the wooden dummy training techniques on a partner, giving you an excellent idea of the combat effectiveness of each movement.
Samuel Kwok - Mastering Wing Chun - Ip Man's Kung Fu DVD 6 - Baat Cham Dao - Wing Chun Butterfly Swords
KNIFE FORM AS TAUGHT BY THE GREAT GRANDMASTER IP MAN
Baat_'eight', Cham_'slash/cut/chop', Dao_'broad sword/saber', Baat-Cham-Dao literally means eight-point-slashing-swords. This type of weapon originates from the southern part of China. One uses for blocking, one uses for attacking, and both Dao often are used in a pair - also known as Butterfly Swords.
This weapon provides training in mobility and further enhances precision in movement. Practicing the knives is comparable to practicing the pole and dummy techniques. The principle is to overcome the opponent with fast, simple, straightforward strikes. The horse stance must be extremely mobile, agile and the energy forward requires total body commitment and coordination. The weapon enhances the application and exertion of qi with the wrist and forearms, which improves your skills in hand combat. Because the weapons extend your energy range, you ability in Chi-Sao and combat will be vastly improved.
This DVD includes 8 sessions of Butterfly Swords forms, clearly demonstrated and explained by Sifu Samuel Kwok including front, side and slow motion views.

Samuel Kwok - Mastering Wing Chun - Ip Man's Kung Fu DVD 7 - Lok Dim Boon Kwan - Six and a Half Point Pole
Grandmaster Samuel Kwok teaches you the first weapon of Wing Chun - the Long Pole.
From the manufacturer:
Leung Yee Tai exchanged Wing Chun techniques in exchange for learning the pole forms from Wong Wah Bo to gain stronger wrist and help make his Biu Gee stronger. This explains why the footwork is different in the rest of the Wing Chun System. When Leung Jan learned Wing Chun from Leung Yee Tai and Wong Wah Bo, it was quite unorganized and did not fit the Wing Chun System. Being a scholar and a doctor he added structure to the curriculum and created an order of progression.

- Stepping Thrust Punch,

Samuel Kwok - Mastering Wing Chun - Ip Man's Kung Fu Vol 9 - ADVANCED Sil Lim Tau
Sil Lim Tau, sometimes referred to as Siu Nim Tao, is the first of the
hand forms of Wing Chun Kung Fu. It teaches the student the basics of
the martial art. The form has been adapted and changed over the last few
hundred years, but it is thought that the form was inspired by
movements from both crane style kung fu and snake style kung fu. The
form has evolved differently as styles of Wing Chun diverged.
The snake element can be seen more in Yuen Kay San Wing Chun in Foshan,
China, than it can in Ip Man's Wing Chun which was reordered by Ip Man
and his predecessors in Foshan and later in Hong Kong. In this video
Grandmaster Samuel Kwok teaches the detailed advanced method of
performing the form as handed down by Ip Man.
Samuel Kwok - Mastering Wing Chun - Ip Man's Kung Fu Vol 10 - ADVANCED Chum Kiu
In this video Grandmaster Samuel Kwok teaches advanced lessons on the
form as handed down by Ip Man.
The first section of Chum Kiu teaches how to use turning and techniques
at the same time, for example the Bong Sau and Wu Sau are performed
whist turning and shifting the body weight from one leg to the other.
This is teaching the practitioner to use the hips to develop power or
Yiu Ma as it's called in Cantonese. The first section also introduces
two way energy as seen when the Lan Sau arm Laps back and a straight
punch is delivered. This enables the practitioner to deliver more
devastating blows with relative ease as the Laping arm is enabling the
transfer of power across the body as the force can flow as one motion
without interruption, with the addition of pulling your opponent off
balance, the target will also be moving into the punch and so additional
damage will be caused. The key to doing this is to learn how to use all
the muscles in your body in a short sequence ie. your hips and legs
turn and start generating some power, which is then carried on my the
shoulders and finally the arm. If you miss time this, you end up just
striking with your arm and not using the power of your whole body. The
only way to develop this skill is through practice. Chum Kiu is a
vitally important way to practice synchronizing the body's movements to
work as one unit.
Samuel Kwok - Mastering Wing Chun - Ip Man's Kung Fu Vol 11 - ADVANCED Biu Gee
In this video Grandmaster Samuel Kwok teaches advanced lessons on the
form as handed down by Ip Man. Biu Gee (thrusting/darting fingers) is
sometimes also referred to as Biu Tse, Biu Jee or even Bil Gee. The
different ways to spell it, arise because it is hard to Romanise (put
into Latin or western letters) Cantonese speech. Despite the different
spellings the pronunciation in Cantonese is the same. Biu Gee is the
third and final hand form of the Wing Chun Kung Fu system and was
traditionally only taught to close or trusted Wing Chun students.
Usually students who had been training for a longer period of time. As a
result, the Biu Gee form will vary most between lineages, even within
Ip Man linage, the final form is different between different
