By Joyotpaul Chaudhuri, Ph.D.




Defending the Motherline: Wing Chun's Sil Lum Tao

The author analyzes the structure and function of the primary stance in wing chun’s first form, sil lim tao, which instills the relational structure of bone, ligament, joint, tendon, muscle, line and angle, while also teaching the inner virtues of softness, stillness, sinking and emptiness. The “motherline” is presented in aspects of attack and defense.
