    The Saam Pai Fut – “Praying Thrice to Buddha” section of the form is used to develop a type of “mind force” or “intent” if you will, that is specific to Wing Chun. The reason it is performed slowly is because it is a training method and “mind force” takes time to develop. I believe Grandmaster Ip Man said that the first section should take at least 30 minutes to perform.
