Custom Build / Original design / WING CHUN KUNG FU WOODEN DUMMY

in #kungfu2 months ago (edited)


I just built this.
Original design.

Free standing #wingchun #dummy with traditional horizontal bracket and a second #kungfu #dummy pinned vertically.


05.jpgBoth dummies balance each other pretty well. The whole platform is built on a tire but can only achieve an inclination of 25 degrees maximum.


07.jpg06.jpgAs you can see both dummies are lifted in the air with the 2 support systems (horizontal and vertical).

I wear 3 hats on this. The designer, the builder and the practitioner (could be the title of a movie).

THE DESIGNER smoked too much pot and drew those 2 sketches:



THE BUILDER showed up on time with his tools. Looked at the sketches from the stoned designer, paused and rolled his eyes accompanied by a long sigh.

He only used whatever wood we had around so let's give him credit for that.
When we asked him to take some photos of the construction process he said "You don't pay me enough!". Next.

THE PRACTITONER. he's serious about Kung Fu and trained for almost 30 years. He is really happy with the result. He (I) trained on many dummies before, for a long time and this is objectively the smoothest fucking dummy I ever trained on.

I am really proud of the whole crew (I) on this because the end result is good.


I am blogging this now, to show to my Kung FU brothers my new set-up but also to archive my own projects which I haven't always done and now I have very few images of those.

I saved this one; an older Wing Chun Wooden Dummy I designed/built in 2004. Back then I used cement for the base, a PVC pipe for the trunk and sculpted arms and the leg in maple wood attached with liquid rubber.

This patio is my Dojo now. In kung Fu we say Kwoon but I assumed that more people are familiar with the term Dojo.
Anyway "Bow to your Senseï!" In Kung Fu we say Sifu but I assumed that more people are familiar with the word Senseï.

In conclusion/resume I put 2 Kung Fu dummies on a tire and it's fantastic!
Later this summer I'll demonstrate in a video.

Much love.



What a freaking legend! The designer never smoke enough pot ^^ hahah

Yes indeed! Haha. He did an alright job this time around so we'l let him be..

Wow this is super impressive, do we get to see you in action then? How long did it take you to build it?
Also I am very impressed by your three hats lol xxx

I took me around a week from the design to the complete finished construction.
But I 've been fine tuning it the last 2. As mentioned in my post I'll film a sequence later this summer you want me to tag you when I do?

Genius!!! That turned out totally rad. But "boards don't hit back" :)


Bruce Lee studied under Ip Man, I studied in 2 schools where the lineage come directly from Ip Man as well. Coincidence? We don't think so. "boards don't hit back" but you can hit someone with boards... Think bout it. :)


So cool !!!
I did Wing Chun so I really love that!

Would like to try to build the same but not shure to do as nice as you did! =D

Cette installation je vient de la construire. Pendant 2 ans je ne pouvait pas pratiquer le dummy dans mon appart ou j'était donc j'ai fait la forme sans le mannequin, dans les airs, pendant cette période.

Pas toujours facile, par manque de place, j'ai aussi eu de longue période sans pouvoir m'entrainer correctement...
Bravo encore pour la réalisation!

Oh nice job! This things looks awesome, even with the pot smoking sketch... you did a great job.

Thank you very much.

This project turned out really good, congratulations!
