What is the difference between the Wing Chun Chum Kiu form and the versions found in other Southern Chinese Martial Arts, such as Hung Ga?

Other styles require the practitioner to turn invisible so people can't see them doing the form

Which specific Southern style form would you like to compare to Chum Kiu? For example, most Hung Ga curriculum have around 10 open hand forms.

I saw this on the Plum Publishing site. Is it possible this "Bridge Hand" is a practice in just one small lineage of Hung Ga? I have not been able to find information on it through numerous forums.

Traditionally, Bridge Hand in Hung Ga can refer to any of the common 12 bridge techniques that are found throughout several forms, each with a different shape and purpose. Hung Ga's bridge work is referred to as The Twelve Bridges.
