Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau
The “Little-Idea Form” of Wing Chun Kuen
Official Curriculum of the
Arizona Wing Chun Association
From: Phil Bradley
Subject: Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau
Dear Wing Chun friends and colleagues,
If you’re like me, you have a passion for Wing Chun. The sheer explosiveness. The power that comes from a short distance. The fact that you can train this phenomenal art from youth well into old age.
But also like me, you’ve probably found very few resources to use for real training. Not demonstrations or bits and pieces, mind you, but real training. The actual step-by-step curriculums for literal training on a daily basis.
Where Are All The Training Resources?
You’ve browsed through books, watched DVDs and YouTube videos, even checked out the plethora of websites available. You’ve found some good ones and some not-so-good one, and you may have even tried a few.
Did you find what you were looking for?
Most certainly there “are” some excellent references out there, with many of them in my personal library. But admittedly, neither you nor I have come across a complete program that is logically laid out step-by-step in an easy-to-learn format in order to learn the complete system.
Well I’m excited to let you know that your search is over.
Introducing Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau
The AWCA eBook Training Series is a step-by-step progressive method for learning the art of Wing Chun Kuen. And leading the pack is “Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau”.
“Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau” takes the guesswork out of your training by providing all of the resources you need into one convenient workbook for beginning your Wing Chun journey.

“Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau” is feature-rich yet also easy-to-use and train with. Based on approved distance learning principles and guidelines, our official curriculum was transferred to an all-inclusive workbook that has been proven useful by thousands of practitioners around the world.

“Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau” was created as both a learning platform and a reference manual so that all levels of practitioners can benefit from it. From beginner to advanced practitioner, it can be used from the ground up as an introduction to Wing Chun, as well as a full reference after the Siu-Nim-Tau has been completed.
When your training is completed and you’re ready to move to Volume 2: Chum-Kiu, don’t think you’ll never return to Siu-Nim-Tau. Even though it’s the first, the Siu-Nim-Tau is also the most important of all training. That’s why your workbook also serves as a complete reference manual with a clear index to find anything you need quickly and efficiently.
What Do Our Customers Think?
Si-Fu Phil… Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau is worth MORE than I imagined. After 5 months of training with it, I finally got enough money to join a school and my Si-Fu put me in the advanced Siu-Nim-Tau class! He was surprised (and impressed) when I told him that my previous training was from your workbook. Now he wants one to see what it’s about!

Phil… I just wanted to say how glad I am that I found your website and the eBook Training Series. I’ve been using Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau since a few weeks before joining a school and my classmates are amazed! Your eBook really makes the difference, especially for at-home training, so Thank You!
San Diego, California
Si-Fu Phil’s Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau is a revolutionary step forward with Wing Chun training media. Not only is it easy to read, but it is also in-depth in both demonstration and discussion. I highly recommend Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau to anyone who is serious about their training.
Yavapai Indian Nation, Phoenix, Arizona
Dear Si-Fu Phil… Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau went beyond my expectations. I knew from the sales page that it would be a good read, but I really didn’t think it would be as good as you claimed. Thanks for proving me wrong! This is the best training manual about the Siu-Nim-Tau that I’ve ever seen. All Wing Chun practitioners should have this book.

The enhanced drills, their place in the form, and the narrated full and slow-motion videos? EXCELLENT! Thanks for making such an excellent publication available to everyone. You did yourself proud, mate.

Chapter 1: The Five Stages of Learning
Understanding the five stages of learning and how to take a simple process for applying it to any level of training.

Chapter 6: Reality vs. Classroom
Many have approached their training from an unrealistic viewpoint, working dangerous and unworkable actions in the gym and thinking it will work in real life. In this chapter, I’ll show you how to keep your training at a realistic level so that you don’t fall into the trap of training something in a way that can see you hurt when you really need it.

How Much Is It?
Many would think that a training workbook such as this would be very expensive, and normally they’d be right. The market for a project such as this easily makes the workbook well worth $75.00, but I believe that training should be kept affordable. After all, if it’s so expensive that few could afford it, then what good does it do?
