Wing Chun 2nd Form (Chum Kil/Kiu)

Most linguistic scholars say that Cantonese has 7 distinct tones so one word can have 7 different meanings based on the "musical" tone. Chum can mean sink ( as related to gravity), or search. Some Wing Chun lineages use the sink character as in sinking the bridge. We use the search character as in searching (for) the bridge.
