First I love training in Wing Chun. I have been slacking lately and I know it. While I can’t really make up for lost time I can pick up the ball and get busy doing one of the things I love which is of course teaching Martial Arts.
Wing Chun is a very simple martial art system to understand. It however takes a life time to truly understand all the different nuances within the kung fu system of fighting.
In this video I share with you some wing chun muk jong training you can to develop better pressure control in your arms.
Developing Even Pressure In Your Arm
I’ve only ever heard Sifu Phu talk about even pressure in the arms before. In this video is my understanding of keeping your energy balanced between your wrist and your elbow.
A common mistake that people make when they are practicing their Wing Chun.
Is they either extend too far past their own P.O.C.K.E.T. (Point Of Contact Kinetic Energy Transfer).
Either by pushing past it or simply lack the control to connect precisely to their target.
…I call this having Wobbly arms
It’s possible I may have made that term up lols. From a feeling standpoint a person with wobbly arms never feel settled in their position upon contact.
Training Out Wobbly Arms On The Wing Chun Wooden Dummy (Muk Jong)
The lesson I filmed is a couple of training drills using the Muk Jong that you can use to create even pressure between your wrist and your elbow. It’s hard to describe it, this is just something you have to feel yourself.
The best description I have is the pressure in your arm should feel the same from your wrist to your elbow. I would love to hear your feedback. Would you like to see more lessons like this? Let me know in the comment sections below !

This was a really good simple exercise to work on keeping the pressure even in my arms. I’m adding it to my daily routine.
I’m glad you’re going to break the second one down so I can do it too.
Also, I loved the tip on how to pullback by sitting more while keeping the elbows forward. I was always struggling with not going backwards with my energy. That tip helped a lot.

Hi Pam! I am glad you enjoyed the lesson. I am glad that last tip was helpful 🙂

Thank you for this impactful video!! Great demonstration and very clear and concise advice. I will work on this on the jong and I know that it will help immensely.
The short videos are great and allow for great insight into improving and correcting one’s technique.
Many thanks once again,
