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.
Sifu Rick Piraino who teaches small and private classes in Buffalo, New York replies

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.

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,
