This system always humbles me, every time when I train. Especially when I am here in Hong Kong, like now and have the possibility to train every day with the Grandmaster.

The main goal however is to meet Sifu Ip Chee Keung, train with him, absorb his teachings, his approach, attitude. It is great opportunity to be able to practice with the Gatekeeper Grandmaster, the best of the best, who’s understanding of this system is unique.

Saam Bo Pai Kiu anticipates other forms which are usually taught later (that’s why they are mistakenly believed to be higher level or advanced forms). The naming technique can be practiced three ways out of which two are generally used in the form.
