The wooden dummy (Muk-Yan Chong) is one of the features of WingTsun™ kung – fu that has made the art famous. Bruce Lee was a famous user of the wooden dummy as a training tool. It was again featured in the recent “Ip Man” movies.
The wooden dummy training has been applied in different ways according to the interpretations of the individual trainee and Wing Tsun, Wing Chun or Ving Tsun lineage.
