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.
