The saam sing jong or three star dummy is a traditional training apparatus used predominately in the mainland China families of Wing Chun. Its primary purpose is to train dynamic balance, or balance in motion, in footwork and kicking technique. The jong was reportedly taught by the late grandmaster Yip Man to early, selected students, however there is little written evidence of this. Lo Man Kam, Yip mans nephew in Taiwan, and Leung Ting in Hong Kong, both include this jong in their training syllabus. To date there have been no definitive, recorded footwork or kicking patterns.

Ian Protheroe - Wing Chun Three Star Dummy (Saam Sing Jong) DVD (PAL Format)

The saam sing jong or three star dummy is a traditional training apparatus used predominately in the mainland China families of Wing Chun. Its primary purpose is to train dynamic balance, or balance in motion, in footwork and kicking technique.

The jong was reportedly taught by the late grandmaster Yip Man to early, selected students, however there is little written evidence of this. Lo Man Kam, Yip man's nephew in Taiwan, and Leung Ting in Hong Kong, both include this jong in their training syllabus'. To date there have been no definitive, recorded footwork or kicking patterns.

Sifu Ian Protheroe has been a student and teacher of the saam sing jong for over two and a half decades, his early trips throughout South East Asia inspired his passion for the apparent simplicity of the jong. His DVD demonstrates both the 12 step circular and triangular footwork patterns as well as kicking and sweeping techniques employed on the jong. He also covers the meditational value the jong, it's Buddhist roots and much more.

A must for all serious Wing Chun students and instructors alike.

This DVD is an edited version of a seminar on the Saam Sing Jong by Sifu Ian Protheroe. As it was recorded "live" the audio quality is not that great but the overall content is priceless. A welcome addition to anyone interested in Wing Chun's Saam Sing Jong (Three Start Dummy/Tripodial).
