In this video, we are going to talk about the first 8 moves in Sil Lum Tao. We are going to do the breakdown and teach you how to project your energy properly and how to apply some of the techniques in the movements.
Sil Lum Tao means little ideas or humble thoughts. That all movements should be simple, direct, forward, and center. That’s the principle of what Sil Lum Tao is for. We are going to develop that technique today. I am going to break down the first 8 moves of the form. We are going to break down each section and show you how to properly project your energy.
It’s very important about the energy. There are many different forms there are many different ways to play it. It’s not about the order. It’s really about the principle of energy behind it. I am going to use my student Larry and we are going to show you the rights and the wrongs of how you are doing your energy projection your Sil Lum Tao.
We are going to show you the opening, the opening really doesn’t matter how you do it. Everybody has a specific way they open it. The openings really represent the family’s different lineages…

Hi Dion. All internal systems are basically the same. The manner in which you go about (techniques and sequences of movements) depends on the teacher and system you are learning. We have a lot of internal training in our site so enjoy them. If you have any specific one you are looking for, let us know.
