How Tall Should My Wing Chun Dummy Be?

by Shorya Singh

What is the right height for a wooden Wing Chun practice dummy? I am 5 feet 11 inches tall.

Set the height of the mook jong (wooden dummy) in relation to your body.

When standing naturally, the top 2 arms should beat about nipple level.

Remember, YOU are training and perfecting at YOUR height, distance facing, range, and structure... not to the opponent's.

Rob Comments: However, for fun and variety, adjust the dummy height a tad higher or lower. It does make a difference.

Dunx,

The dummy should be about your height, at arm level.

However, it's better if you can adjust the height of your dummy up and down a bit. This way you can train for taller and shorter "people." Most people don't do this.

But the wooden dummy is a training tool. It's best to also train with real people of different sizes and skill.

Seek the straightest path,

Rob
