Siu Nim Tau, or the “Little Idea,” is quite meaningful with regard to commencing the study of Wing Tsun kung fu. In the first lesson, the beginner is briefed by his instructor that “when a Little Idea is not good, a pugilist will fail in performing martial arts, and may also have poor moral standards.” The characteristic of this set is to provide essential training for the whole body. When practicing this set, a student does not move his feet. The practice of SNT can be likened to the practice of meditation. The only difference is that when practicing meditation one is normally sitting, whereas in this set one is standing.
