Metal Rattan Ring ("Steel Ring") - 10.5 Inches

Most commonly used for Wing Chun, these rings help teach the practitioner to keep their hands properly linked in attacks and defense.

This ring is about 1/2 pound - it is ideal for rattan ring training exercises (it is not for weight training exercises). The inside is hollow to reduce weight. The manufacturer stays it is "steel" but to us it feels like an aluminum alloy - either way it is a great ring.

Outside Diameter: 10.5 inches (26.5 cm)
Inside Diameter: 9 inches (22.5 cm)
Thickness: 3/4 inch (1.5 cm)
Weight: 7.94 oz (225 g)

What size ring should I get?

A quick way to find your ideal starting size is to measure from the inside of your wrist to the pocket of your elbow. Something about that size is good to start with according to most teachers. You can use bigger or smaller rings once you are proficient or if you want to focus on one of the following. According to Sifu Tyler Rea:

- Training with a Large Ring minimizes the range of retraction possible in the arms forcing them to remain beyond the body and extended during training. This detail also forces the body mass and torso core to be the active initiator of movement through the Toe Ma and Bik Ma stepping as well as the Quintessential Cheun Ma Stance turn which is at the heart of Wing Chun's ballistic body mass rotation.

- Training with a Smaller Ring immediately unites the interaction of the Arms and back specifically the Scapula. Due to the smaller circumference the arms have the ability to obliquely expand and contract during moments with the Back, enhancing the interaction and cultivation of Float, Sink , Swallow and Spit powers during training

Both of these training approaches yield the cultivation of unique skills regardless of which a practitioner begins with or chooses to focus on. Generally each is dependent on what size ring you choose.
