Foshan Wing Chun Bamboo Dummy

I came to learn of the Wing Chun Bamboo from my Master Yui Kil in 1987. It was during my visit in Foshan, China that I discovered many of the Yip Man generation or older, practised very different versions of Wing Chun.

The Wing Chun wooden dummy is widely known, and it is a derivative of the Shaolin Wu Shu (Kung Fu). However, little is known of the Wing Chun Bamboo Dummy. Unfortunately, I am not a martial art historian per say, so I will not put a date or it's exact origin. But the bamboo dummy principles blends well with Grandmaster Yui Kil's hand-to-hand combat.

The Bamboo dummy is a very simple apparatus with 3-4 bamboo arms inserted into the wall or a boxed bracket. When blocks are applied, there is a very high degree of plyometric muscoskeletal contraction, thus, elastic speed-power is enhanced. The fundamental theory of Bamboo dummy techniques is the opposite to that of the conventional Wooden Dummy.

In the Bamboo Dummy, the blocks dominate the position of the arms, whereas the wooden dummy, the dummy's arms dominate the position. I find that using both is extremely beneficial since the two types of dummies enhance different combative qualities.

Such qualities such strength, speed, and positions (biomechanical trajectory and joint angles) are certainly predominant. Although the dummies are very traditional apparatus, the individual must not rely solely on traditional set pattern of movements (forms), instead, training drills or models must be based on tactical approach.

Therefore, it can be used in the similar imaginative approach as when you are training with a real person. Set patterns are great way of building a foundation, but it is paramount to build different repertoires. The Bamboo Dummy's arms will yield and spring back to its original position, thus, making you aware of counterattack or a reaction or a combination of movements of the dummy.

I personally use the same method of training for the swords and the pole. It feels like the target is alive and moving, and I know that accuracy and timing has improved a great deal.

Well, this subject has been frequently asked by many of my students, so I took sometime to write this brief insight. Next discussion may be on .....wait and see!!
