It is specifically for those who are beginner’s learning Wing Chun at home and are looking to get the solo techniques / training sequences of the 1st section set of the Wing Chun wooden dummy form as taught under the Leung Sheung lineage (Ip Man’s senior-most student in HK). This Wing Chun 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.

Here’s one of the best Wing Chun drills for home training… a beginners Wing Chun lesson (Wing Chun home training) that teaches a Wing Chun solo drill called “Bong Wu, Tan Da”. This beginners training drill uses pivots to move the feet and hips from one angle to the next. Honestly, when it comes to Wing Chun home training drills for beginners, this may be one of the best… especially when looking to develop hand/foot coordination as well as the ability to apply with both hands simultaneously.
NOTE: While training this Wing Chun drill at home, when the bong sao is practiced along with the wu, both the bong and the wu get driven forward directly towards the opponent’s centerline. The same forward energy applies when practicing the Tan Da solo drill technique. (The tan sao drives forward at the same time as the punch).
A Wing Chun at home solo training drill that you can practice daily to get good. Footwork is one of the best home training drills to practice because it gets into your muscle memory and then natural comes out in sparring. Sifu Adam Williss says if you want to see someone good, watch their footwork. So yes, Wing Chun training from home can make a big difference!
Here’s another great Wing Chun drills for home training… switching Kwan Saos or rolling arms with pivotes. This at home drill teaches how a rolling action from a bong and tan on one side pivoting to the other side. Basically, this Wing Chun drill teaches you how to turn the tables on an opponent who ties you up and smothers you in a tight spot. And when you practice this drill at home over and over again, it creates (within you) the specific muscle memory to use your opponent’s forward pressure against them.
Wing Chun beginners should not view the Fook Sao (AKA Fook Sau) should as a fixed Wing Chun technique. Instead, beginners to Wing Chun should try to see what concepts the technique teaches. Although considered one of the primary Wing Chun techniques, understanding the meaning of the fook sau technique, what it is for, why he technique looks the way it does and where it’s concepts can be applied, will take a beginner much further in their development and ability.

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).
