Chi Sim Weng Chun Series - DVD 1: Saam Baai Fut (Three Bows to Buddha) Extreme Compassion Eternal Spring Fist
by Andreas Hoffman

The first video in the second series of Wing Chun videos produced in association with the Ving Tsun Museum, this historical DVD contains the first video material ever available to the public on the Chi Sim Weng Chun Kung Fu system.

It features demonstrations of the set by Grandmaster and successor to the style, Andreas Hoffmann, as well as applications for the movements. Curator Benny Meng of the Ving Tsun Museum also discusses the historical background of Chi Sim Weng Chun Kuen and its relationship to other Wing Chun branches.

This video contains the set called Saam Baai Fut, meaning Three Bows to Buddha. This is the heart of Chi Sim Weng Chun. In this set, the student learns to multiply energy through the waist as in bowing. Every technique in Weng Chun has a special bow to add power and structure. When the skill of Saam Baai Fut is mastered, a practitioner can rob the energy of an experienced opponent, or even prevent it from arising at all. This set also introduces the concept of thinking vertically as well as horizontally and laterally through bowing to Heaven (high), Human (middle), and Earth (low). Its focus is to expand the ability of the Weng Chun Kuen practitioner to cover all of space and time. This set is called Saam Baai Fut because the student bows once for the Dharma (teaching), once for fellow students, and once to the Buddha nature within.

This Saam Baai Fut video is made in recognition of, and in honor to, Grand Master Wai Yan for his dedication to the development of Chi Sim Weng Chun Kung Fu.
