The Wing Chun Wooden Dummy, is it really worth learning?

Or is it just a stake in the ground?

"They laughed when I got my wooden dummy so early into my Wing Chun journey, but when I started to use the Muk Yan Jong..."

Dear fellow Wing Chun practitioner,

"If you have struggled to learn the Wing Chun Wooden Dummy and have tried every YouTube video and online routine or you never seem to have enough time in class, then you are about to read on this page what you have been waiting all your training life for.

Here's why..."

When you make the commitment to purchase a Wing Chun Wooden Dummy you have a few things to consider

  1. Fixed or Freestanding
  2. Wooden or resin
  3. Where will you store your Wooden Dummy
  4. Is it weatherproof

The wooden dummy is an amazing piece of equipment. 

If you ever walk into a Wing Chun Kwoon (simplified Chinese: 馆; traditional Chinese: 館; pinyin: guǎn; training hall for Chinese martial arts) and you see the Muk Yan Jong, and you are new to Wing Chun then the conversation will inevitably end up at the Wooden Dummy. 

  1. "When Can I start to learn the Wooden Dummy?"
  2. "Are they expensive?"
  3. "What is that for?"
  4. “Can I have a go?”

Once the initial excitement has subsided and your Wing Chun training has commenced eventually you will begin your Wooden Dummy training.

Depending on the size of the classes where you are being taught the time you have available to access the Wooden Dummy maybe limited. 

Your Options
If you go down the route of having private lessons there are few issues to overcome

  • Do you have the time
  • Does Sifu have the time
  • Can I afford private lessons
  • Do we have a place to practice
  • What if I am training at home and I need some guidance

So why this online course?

Your Instructor
Let me introduce myself, my name is Sifu Alan Bagley, I have been teaching Wing Chun for over 13 years.

I run a full-time Wing Chun academy in the United Kindom and have taught the Muk Yan Jong to hundreds of students.

Why wait?
The introduction to the Wooden Dummy is usually delayed until they have finished all of their empty hand form training, Siu Nim Tao, Chum Kiu and Biu Tze.

I firmly believe that the Wooden Dummy can be introduced a lot earlier and has a massive benefit to new students of the Wing Chun system. 

My Lineage is directly from IP Man, my Grand Master or Sigung is Ip Chun Sifu and my Sifu Shaun Rawcliffe
