Jing Ma is the first stance you learn in Wing Chun. Siu Lim Tao is performed entirely in Jing Ma. Jing Ma is sometimes called “The Goat Riding Stance”, but it is always considered “The Mother Stance”.
Mother is the source of all good things. Mother provides sustenance, balance, and strength. Mother is teacher. Mother leads outward to great explorations and flight. Mother is there in the need to return to safety. Mother calms upset, and mends wounds. Mother is the source of all good things.
I wish all mothers a Happy Mother’s Day.
