TWC Siu Lim Tau form

Wing Chun is a Southern art that uses Cantonese terms. Most of us use the English spelling Tao in our first form. Tao in English is Mandarin for Do in Cantonese. Our first form should be written Siu Lim/Nim Tau. This Tau means head 頭 and is not the metaphysical concept Tao/Do 道. So Siu Lim Tau means small thoughts/idea (in) head. Not the "way" of the small idea.
