For the slightly more advanced students, there is the dummy training.

A dummy is a round wooden pole to which three wooden "arms" and a wooden leg "are attached. On the dummy is a complete set of trained movements.

Most movements are reflected in the Sil-Lim-Tao, the Chum Kiu, and Bil-Jee.



It is said that the dummy used within Ving Tsun is like the dummy that was used interchangeably in the famous Shaolin Temple. Dummy

The monks of the Shaolin Temple used the dummy too for practising techniques. The arms and legs of the dummy are very conveniently located and are an excellent tool to harness the power of your elbow to train, good fighting positions to take and restore to learn of adverse situations


So the dummy mimics trunk and limbs of an opponent. The dummy, sometimes also called "wooden man", is attached to the wall using two wooden beams. Photo
