    Types of Wooden Training Dummies for Kung Fu and Wing Chun

    There are several different types of wooden dummies including:

    • Freestanding Wing Chun/Kung Fu Dummy
    • Compact Wall-Mounted Wing Chun/Kung Fu Dummy
    • Wing Chun/Kung Fu Dummy with Recoil Stand

    Freestanding Wing Chun/Kung Fu dummy

    Ideal for training spaces where you don't want to, or can't, mount your dummy to the wall and particularly useful if you're training at home or in an apartment. The freestanding dummy also has the additionally benefit of reducing the transfer of noise and vibrations that would normally carry through walls into your neighbours apartment.

    On the other hand, cheaper freestanding dummies may not have appropriate mounting and may therefore lose some of the stability that a wall-mounted unit has so ensure that you use a heavy dummy with adequate floor mounting. This is a particular point to consider when shopping based on price, as cheaper dummies are often made from lighter, weaker materials that could reduce the effectiveness of your training. 

    Compact Wall-Mounted Dummy

    Featuring a more compact design then the traditional Wall-mounted Kung Fu dummy, the Compact dummy provides efficient space-saving, while maintaining the stability of a wall mount. The wall mount keeps the dummy securely in place while the back bars allow the dummy to be adjusted for different users specific needs.

    There are some disadvantages of this design however. The wall on which the unit is mounted must be strong enough to withstand constant use and force. Additionally, vibrations and noise will travel through the dummy, into the wall and potentially disturb anyone that shares the wall with you, such as in apartments or neighbouring business spaces.

    Dummy with Recoil Stand

    What sets this dummy apart is its ability to recoil and react to contact. It will always recoil to the centre position after being released. What this means is that the deflection of the arms when blocked gives energy back toward the student in a similar manner to someone defending themselves against an actual strike.

    This allows the student to develop quicker reflexes because the dummy “hits back”, allowing the student to take their training to another level. While other types of wooden dummies are stationary, the specially designed recoil stand absorbs energy and pushes back against it. What this does is create a better feeling of what real-life contact would be like.

    Benefits of Training with a Wing Chun Dummy

    The wooden Kung Fu/Wing Chun dummy is one of the most widely used solo martial arts training devices available, and for good reason. Let’s face it, it can’t always be easy to find a training partner who is ready and available to help by sticking their arms out while you practice your Kung Fu or Wing Chun techniques.

    The 'arms' of a Wing Chun dummy are designed to represent obstacles, or energetic pathways around which you can practice your moves, and against which you can practice channelling your energy. Additionally, training on the Kung Fu dummy helps improve your power structure against bigger, stronger opponents. When you make contact with the dummy, you are given immediate feedback of energy which influences your structure. This way, the Wing Chun dummy helps practitioners avoid using force against force. It also helps develop balance, accuracy, timing, mobility and positioning.

    How to Train with a Kung Fu Dummy

    The Wing Chun wooden dummy is a very specific training tool. Traditional Wing Chun training provides specific time-tested ways on how to train. The wooden dummy form is practised to ensure precise techniques are trained in a definitive order. This form is then divided up into 8-10 sections (subsets) depending upon the lineage.

    First, learn the first section of the wooden dummy form. After that, there are numerous other dummy training videos on YouTube that give you important training tips for learning how to train on the wooden dummy. 

    Common Kung Fu Dummy Training Mistakes 

    Using the Kung Fu dummy to condition the arms:

    The first mistake that many beginners will make is banging on the dummy. While conditioning will naturally occur while training on the dummy, that’s not the true purpose. The purpose of wooden dummy training is positioning and footwork.

    Chasing the “hands” of the Kung Fu dummy:

    A main principle in Wing Chun is “chasing the centre”, meaning that there are no blocks. Wing Chun teaches to make the most of every second and angle and generally try to always keep the arms heading towards the target. Wing Chun teaches simultaneous attack and defence, meaning that the practitioner should always be attacking.

    Many students hit the dummy as if they are trying to knock away the dummy’s “hands”, which is also called “chasing hands”. Wing Chun hands should move into the target in nearly ever dummy action, always being mindful of where the energy is going.

    Looking down at your hands and feet:

    In Wing Chun this is a problem because the art gains its power through structure. Structure is created by cultivating a relationship of limbs to one another and the rest of the body. It is important that the spine remains straight and head is up and looking at the target. Looking down breaks structure and causes the practitioner to lose power. By making the body a unit with correct posture and structure, you can harness power from the ground. Your power goes where you look.

    • Dispatch Timeframes

      We strive to dispatch orders as quickly as possible, that's why we provide Next Day Dispatch on the majority of orders. Orders generally take 1-2 business days to clear from our warehouse, with 95% of orders dispatched within 1 business day. However some products require additional packing and handling prior to dispatch and therefore take longer to process. These can include:

      • Boxing bags - boxing bags are made to order and filled prior to dispatch. Due to the additional time required to fill bags, there may be a backlog of orders being processed. Consequently, delays in dispatch may occur during peak times (eg. Black Friday, pre-Christmas)
      • Heavy items - Bulky items and large orders are required to ship on pallets and often require additional packing prior to dispatch. 

      Shipping Timeframes

      Shipping time frame will vary depending on your location and the items you have ordered, but a general range is 1-7 business days from dispatch. Capital city metro areas can generally expect shipping times between 1-3 business days. Inner regional metro areas can expect shipping times between 3-5 business days. Shipping to outer regional areas can expect shipping times between 5-14 business days. 

      Free Shipping

      Our Free Shipping policy applies to most orders over $100 however charges will apply if shipping to more remote locations or if delivery requires a greater level of involvement by the courier eg. provision of a tailgate truck. If your order meets these criteria, we guarantee Free Shipping direct to your door with our "Leave Safe Home Delivery" option.

      All deliveries are to curbside only eg. garage or front door. Due to courier regulations and rules, delivery operators are not allowed to transport items beyond the front door.

      If you require assistance in transporting your product into the house, upstairs or similar, please contact us prior to delivery and we will happily arrange for assistance from our national network of third party specialist handymen. All handymen are vetted by us to ensure only the highest level of customer service and professionalism is provided.

      A number of our products are heavy and bulky items, and as such there are some restrictions to our Free Shipping policy. For items over 40kg, these restrictions are as follows:

    • - Items over 40kg are shipped on pallets and therefore come under additional courier restrictions. Consequently, we are only able to provide Free Shipping of palletised orders to commercial addresses or to the nearest depot.

    • - Delivery of palletised orders to residential addresses are subject to an additional service fee from our couriers for the provision of heavy duty tail-gate trucks and associated extra labour.

    • HEAVY AND BULKY ITEMS (PALLETISED)

      The receiver will be contacted prior to delivery to arrange a suitable delivery date and time. Deliveries are scheduled for either an AM or PM slot on any given day.

      This service utilizes power tailgates with two-man crews or crane trucks when required and this is included in the quoted price. All goods in excess of 40kg in weight are palletised.

      Delivery is to front car port, driveway, doorstep or wherever practical depending upon site access. Drivers are not permitted to move item(s) within the residence or around the property due to OHS reasons. Please contact us at the time of your order to arrange for our in-home set-up and installation service.
      This service assumes reasonable and safe access to the site is available. Overhanging trees, steep driveways, unsealed driveways, narrow driveways or streets or an unforeseen obstruction may deem the delivery unavailable.
