Sifu Carson Lau was very busy the last two months conducting seminars at our Chicago, San Antonio and Hungary branches. In addition to holding these seminar, he also examined many students for their instructor test. He was extremely happy that all students at CWTA branches are progressing a lot. We could tell that they have spent plenty of time to train and learn Wing Tsun from the heart.
We hope more and more students can be promoted to higher levels and also can spread Wing Tsun kungfu throughout the world.

I recently visited Montreal to see how he is doing and also gave a seminar to the students there. I am very happy to see Chih has done very well with his class and his students are all very enthusiastic to learn Wing Tsun. I can tell Chih has put in a lot of hard work and will continue to be successful! Seeing these results and Chih’s dedication to Wing Tsun, I have promoted Chih and recongnize him as a Sifu of Wing Tsun. Chih is the first of my students in Canada to achieve Sifu status. Keep up the good work!

Mini seminar concerning Siu Nim Tau theory and foundation of Wing Tsun.
Siu Nim Tau is the first form that every WingTsun students learn from day 1. If we all pay attention enough, then we will notice Siu Nim Tau did help us emerge into the Wingtsun’s main concept instantly and effectively. First of all, it tells us we need a strong solid stance. Secondly, the centerline theory is implanted in most of the movements. In order to achieve successful, lasting and effective WingTsun practice, all students should begin by focusing on a strong foundation. An important attitude to develop is attention to small details. During this mini seminar, Sifu Lau revealed some key details of Siu Num Tau and demonstrated how it is implemented in WingTsun training. All students gained so many insights and benefit from Sifu’s teaching.
Below are the testimonial from the students who attended this mini seminar :-
Ki Nosworthy: Back to basics, the fundamentals. Sifu Carson Lau takes us through a detailed step by step look at the first form of Wing Tsun vital to the training. Whether you’re at a beginner level or an advanced level the Siu Nim Tau is a key to Wing Tsun training, and will help open future doors towards a WT skill set. I highly recommend any future seminars put on by Sifu Carson Lau.
Fumi Chan: As a feather weight female Wing Tsun student,I know how important it is for me to perfect my technique with speed,viciousness,accuracy and power to compensate for my lack of physical strength. Siu Nim Tau Seminar provided me with the perfect opportunity to acquire accurate knowledge of the most fundamental form. With this defined
understanding,all I need to do is practice over and over again until I attain perfection. In time,the other three elements will develop with hard work and will power.
Daniel Cheung: Too often, when training in a martial art, people rush to learn how to fight. Although we start off with the fundamentals in various forms, it is all too easy
to get sloppy and forget rudimentary details that make any given martial art unique. Like any language, every martial art has its own grammar; for Wing Tsun, that grammar is contained in practicing Siu Nim Tao. For this reason, the Siu Nim Tao workshop is invaluable not only to reinforce the basics, but to also remind students of its benefits for healthy living, not just for fighting. The
basic advice is to not rush and make every move precise. If someone takes their time and does it correctly with proper breathing, they can actually become healthier. The precision required can make offensive and defensive movements that much more effective. I highly recommend that students of Wing Tsun at any level seriously consider the Siu nim Tao seminar.
Edwin Lau: I highly recommend this seminiar to all Wing Tsun members who already know the entire Siu Nim Tau form. SIFU explained each Siu Nim Tau movement in great
detail in a very clear manner. Using the information gained from this seminar, I can improve my own Siu Nim Tau form, for I now have a much better understanding of what my body position should be at the end of each Siu Nim Tau movement. The better is my Siu Nim Tau form, the stronger will be my Wing Tsun foundation.
