The wooden Dummy is a Training Device unique to Wing Chun. It utilises the "Protractor Affect" which corrects the practitioner's angles & strokes. The dummy shown here is known as a "Live Dummy", meaning that it is slightly sprung which causes it to move about slightly as the practitioner strikes at it. It is designed this way to assimilate a live opponent. As a training partner it is always available, it never answers back and is never tired even if you are.
