Free-Standing Wing Chun Wooden Dummy (Made on Demand)
Note: This dummy has some custom options that may not match the picture. Please be sure to pick the exact items you want.
The version of the dummy comes with the additional equipment box on the rear of the dummy stand. This box is a great way to store your equipment or weights and keep them out of sight while weighing down your dummy! We love this box!
This Free-Standing Wing Chun wooden dummy (aka Muk Yan Jong, or Mook Yan Jong) is perfect for training in when you cannot mount a dummy to a wall or have a limited space to place it (like Apartments, Condo's, Dorm Rooms, etc). Unlike traditional Mook Jongs that require wall mounting and take up a lot of space, this dummy can be placed anywhere with no installation required and is super easy to take with you if you move. Just pop the arms and legs out, slide the trunk off of the base, and you are ready to go!
Quality and Wood:
This dummy is made in the USA to "Western" standards of high-quality craftsmanship.
The dummy exterior, base exterior, arms, and legs are all made from high-quality ASH wood. It is an excellent wood for dummies and will last a very long time. The interior post and base trays are Douglas Fir. If you get the extra box on the rear, it is made from a quality plywood. Ash is used to make baseball bats and ax handles, so it is a great wood for the dummy exterior, arms, and leg.
The dummy wood is stained deeply and a gloss finish is layered on to help protect the wood for a long time.
Our Wing Chun wooden dummies attach to the free-standing base by sliding down onto a post that is attached to the base. This model is adjustable for height and comes with additional spacers (4x 3/4 inch / 1.9 cm spacers).
The stand alone weighs approximately 35 pounds (15.8 kg) and is very sturdy without adding any additional weight to it. Of course, the rear of the base is made so that you can add weights to it. The best way to really weight down the dummy is to buy 50 lbs bags of play sand from a hardware store. They cost $3-4 per 50 lbs. So you can get 100 lbs and then just put those bags (unopened) in a container on the back of your dummy. That will bring the total weight up to 230 pounds and it will be really sturdy!
This dummy also comes with an equipment box that fits into the stand and is great for storing weights or extra gear and keeping it out of sight! The box is 20 lbs (9 kg) alone.
This dummy can also be mounted outdoors by simply burying a post into the ground and sliding the dummy down onto it giving you the ultimate training flexibility.
Finally, the dummy comes with holes in the sides for slats - so if you ever want to mount it to a wall or frame stand you can do so without a hassle! (These slat holes are compatible with any Warrior Martial Arts stand if you wish to purchase one that you know will fit).
Our wooden dummy is constructed using traditional Ip Man / Koo Sang measurements, with slight modifications based on Wong Shun Leung, Ip Ching, and Duncan Leung dummies.
The height of the arms off the floor is 52 inches (1.32m). The 4 spacers can make that 55 inches. If you need to raise it even higher you would have to build a small platform (the easiest thing is to put a 4x4 under each side of the base).
Dummy is 60 inches tall, with a 9-inch diameter, and weighs 85 lbs + 10 lbs for the arms and legs. So approx 95 lbs for the dummy without the stand. The stand adds 40 lbs and the additional equipment box is 30 lbs. So the total weight is approx 165 lbs (~75kg).
Level/Parallel or Traditional Arm settings:
The term parallel arms does not refer to the arms being parallel to each other (they are level with each other, not parallel). It refers to the fact that if you draw a line through the tips of the arms, that line is parallel to the floor. The arm tips are approximately level with each other.
These dummy arms naturally go into a more level/parallel position by default. Traditional Wing Chun wooden dummies usually have staggered arms where the left arm is higher than the right arm. With our wooden dummy, you can choose to have the arms staggered or level simply by rotating one of the arms. This gives you more flexibility and training options. If you rotate both arms you can get a large space between them, and if you rotate them one turn you can get a medium setting, but it can change the distance between the arm tips as well. So you have a few options if you don't want them to be parallel.
We realize some lineage/people want custom measurements for the arms. We can do that, usually for free, but costs based on your exact requirements. Just let us know what you need in the order notes or email us first.
We offer 3 legs with this dummy. 1) A standard dummy leg to Ip Man specs. 2) a leg with a concave shin used by Duncan Leung lineage (a private Ip Man disciple), and 3) a shaped leg, which matches Wong Shun Leung specs.
