Thanks for the upload!
This is the first Hung Fa Yi Wing Chun I've seen. Very different to what I do in Wing Tsun, but interesting. Some of the circular hand movements in your form remind me a little of some Pa Fa Lien Wing Chun I saw (though their method was perhaps more relaxed and flowing - no breaks in the movement, if that makes sense).
Upload some more
We're working on getting more videos made up. My Sifu would like to have us film some application clips in the next 6 months, so there will be more to see soon!

We break our Siu Nim Tao down into three sections (you can see the break because the clip flashes a bit).
- The opening outlines the theories that define the hardware (box theory, centerline, 4 gate/6gate/body-Tien Yan Dei)
- The first section (from the tahn sao) shows centerline and saam sing jong (three triangle structure) which shows how we support from the left, right and center zones.
- Second section shows the three Faat Sao, which outline how we deal with outside the box structure (Kiu Sao). Outside the box can mean range or facing.
-Third section shows the Saam Sing Jong Kiu Sao which deals with the 3 timezones as a form of engagement and strategy. This section also has the Siu Lam signature of Eagle, Dragon and Crane together.
I can get more specific about any of the motions you'd like to know more about, just let me know which ones.
