Wooden Dummy - The OCTOPUS (with Free-Standing Recoil Stand) - Designed by Sifu Randy Williams
"THE OCTOPUS" Designed by Sifu Randy Williams CRCA Wing chun, is an 8 limb wing chun wooden dummy. This design opens doors for more techniques and footwork and also 2 practitioners and train on The Octopus simultaneously which is ideal for schools or training with your partner.
The middle two arms on the octopus dummy are parallel. The ones on the sides are staggered. This way it operates as a traditional and modern setup all in one.
This recoil octopus dummy is on the free-standing stand. This is great if you want a recoil dummy, but can't
mount something to the wall.
From the manufacturer:
The recoil reaction dummy stand is one of our newest and most exciting
training tools we have to offer. This patent pending design takes your
wooden dummy training to the next level by applying tension and recoil
to your dummy.
The way the recoil stand works, is two tension bands mounted to the
lower sides of your dummy, crossed over in the back and mounted to the
opposite side of the stand. This is what creates the tension needed to
keep the dummy facing forward. The dummy which sits on a swivel base can
pivit 90 degrees to the right and left, and always under tension. When
released or you change position the dummy then will recoil back to
center position. It always wants to return to the center. The base can
be locked with two metal pins, if you choose to do the traditional forms
which require it not to rotate. When you want to freestyle just pull
the pins and watch your dummy come alive. As with all of our stands you
have height adjustment of 3 inch"s for multiple users. The height
adjustment is only available for use with a warrior dummy.
The two main principles that this stand offers you is recoil and
reaction. The recoil in that it will always recoil back to the center
position after released. This means the deflection of the arms when
blocked provide energy back toward you as in defending an actual strike.
The reaction principle simply develops faster reflex’s due to the fact
that "this sucker hits you back." this is an excellent tool for the
serious practitioner, who is looking to take there skills to the next
Recoil stands are made for Indoor use only. Outdoor weather/dirt/etc can
erode the wood, rubber, and etc which will diminish the effectiveness
and looks over time.
This dummy has slat holes for mounting on a frame stand (like this wall stand) as well as a hollow in the bottom so it can be used on a free-standing portable stand. This way you can always buy a different Warrior stand in the future (if you desire) without having to buy a new dummy.
