Biu Gee is the third and final hand form of the Wing Chun system and is generally only taught to trusted Wing Chun practitioners. Biu Gee contains advanced techniques and emergency escapes.
Bui Gee teaches how to perfect the use of ‘inch energy’, enabling the practitioner to develop power through very short distances. It also builds on the two way energy developed in Chum Kiu.
Biu Gee footwork is known as circle stepping or Huen Ma and is essential to the Wing Chun system. Again this builds on the Chum kiu style thrusting stepping or Biu ma. Huen Ma enables the rapid but safe change of direction enabling the practitioner to avoid an attack and swiftly counter attack.
Biu Gee also introduces the practitioner to elbow strikes, the elbow in Cantonese is ‘jarn’ and Kop Jarn, is a downward elbow. Kop jarn can be used to attack at very close distance where punching or palming with the hand is not an option. Kop jarn can also be used to block an incoming attack when the practitioner has his/her hands trapped. This is one of the reasons Biu Gee is said to contain emergency escape techniques and by finalising the use of power and energy in techniques, and providing the practitioner with options to escape a bad situation such as being pinned, trapped or recovering from a fall.
Each empty hand form builds on the lessons taught in its predecessor, this is why they are meant to be learned in order, first learn to walk then learn to run then always finish first.
