Extra Mook jong Training
We tested filming the mook jong from different angles. Here are some extra clips that we captured on film. The jong techniques you see are part of our Muk Jong sets.
If you like the video feel free to share it 🙂
How do you use Mook Jong?
‘Wooden man’ or ‘wooden dummy’, Mook Jong, is a translation of the Korean name. When faced with such a formidable foe, you can use all of your might. This does not imply that you should use the dummy to exercise your arms by slamming it into it as hard as you can. Learn how to properly position your entire body on the dummy.
Instead of hitting the dummy, caress it gently while practicing on it. Your touch with the dummy will grow heavier as your body unity and biomechanical principles of movement improve. You’ll be able to get the most out of the dummy if you do this.

It is generally agreed that the mook jong is the most advanced skill in Wing Chun. As a consequence of this, the vast majority of people who are learning Wing Chun believe that mastering the techniques of the Wooden Dummy will immediately make one a skilled Wing Chun combatant.
Some even brag to the younger students about how proud they are of themselves and what they’ve accomplished in their academic careers.
All of the mook jong moves are useful for combat in their own right. On the other hand, such moves are actually constructed from the fundamental movements of Siu Nim Tao, Chum Kiu, and Biu Jee. They are not exclusively held by the Wooden Dummy alone as their owner.
Additionally, the only thing that can stop you is your own lack of comprehension and creative ability. I feel that the beginning of successful training is when you start thinking creatively about the problems you are trying to solve.
Similar to “art” in all its manifestations. It will not be a part of you until you start becoming one with your tools and until you become a live, breathing representation of the art. Until then, it will not be a part of you. Therefore, make it a goal to be able to smoothly transition from one technique to the next.
