1 – Beginning Wooden Dummy Training (Wing Chun Dummy Training for Beginners)
A beginners wooden dummy lesson, this Wing Chun lesson helps the new Wing Chun student learn the wooden dummy form step-by step. It is specifically for those who are beginner’s learning Wing Chun and are looking to get the training sequences of the 1st section set of the dummy form as taught under the Leung Sheung lineage (Ip Man’s senior-most student in HK). This dummy lesson was shot during a private session at our Wing Chun school, The Dragon Institute, in Dana Point.
Some crucial concepts for training the Wing Chun dummy are that the beginner’s wooden dummy form is meant to develop Wing Chun footwork and position (See What is the Wing Chun Dummy For?). Always remember not to bang or force your way into the wooden dummy. Rather try to fit or position your way into the Wing Chun wooden dummy. This is how you should approach your wing chun dummy training as a beginner.
In this training video, Sifu Adam shows you 4 of his most important Wing Chun tips for how to chain punch.

After watching this tutorial, you’ll get a glimpse into the concepts behind the action. In fact, at its highest level, you learn that training Wing Chun chain punches is way beyond only chain punching!
Here’s a beginners Wing Chun lesson (Wing Chun home training) that teaches a Wing Chun solo drill called Bong Wu, Tan Da. This Wing Chun drill uses pivots, called Juen Ma, to move the feet and hips from one angle to the next. A great Wing Chun home training drill for developing hand foot coordination as well as duality in both hands.
While training this Wing Chun drill, when the bong sao is practiced along with the wu sao, both the bong sao and the wu sao get driven forward towards the opponent’s centerline. The same with the Tan Da. The tan drives forward at the same time as the punch.
Wing Chun’s Fook Sao (AKA Fook Sau) should NOT be viewed as a fixed Wing Chun technique. Instead, try to see what concepts it is teaching. In fact, the Wing Chun fook sao has many lessons it teaches. Although considered one of the primary Wing Chun techniques, understanding the fook sau meaning, what it is for, why it looks the way it does and where it’s concepts can be applied will take you much further in your Wing Chun development and ability to use it.
Very specific training tips for training the Wing Chun wooden dummy for beginners… (honestly, everyone must know these). This simple video gives clear, basic how to use the wooden dummy tips for practice & training the wing chun mook jong. Practicing the Wing Chun wooden dummy with these simple training tips will help beginners to Wing Chun progress on the wooden dummy properly. Ignoring these simple training tips will halt a beginners progress on both the wooden dummy, in chi sao and in sparring.
The Wing Chun wooden dummy is for training position and footwork. It also helps to develop efficient transitions from one position to the next. Used properly for your Wing Chun training it can and should be the best training device around! This to avoid when training the wooden dummy: Hacking, crossing and chasing the dummy arms. You don’t have to hit the dummy hard to get be effective. The wooden dummy is about precision. It teaches you the feel of the right positions to be in (aka the sweet spots). Some may think wooden dummy training is meant to condition your bones. Instead a Wing Chun beginner should train the wooden dummy in order to develop good structure, position and sensitivity.
In this beginners Wing Chun training lesson, I detail Wing Chun’s Jum Sao / jum sau (sinking hand) technique. Jum sao is used to sink and deflect the opponent’s forward pressure as it comes into you underneath your arm. Keep the energy driven forward into their centerline by your elbow (not the wrist).
