The History Of Wing Chun Wooden Man
The form that Ip Man created initially consisted of 108 techniques, but later on additional kicks were added to it. The concept of practicing martial arts moves on a wooden dummy dates back to a time that is quite a little earlier than Ip Man.
It is believed that the Shaolin Monasteries were the original inspiration behind the use of a wooden dummy. According to a variety of different interpretations of the history of Wing Chun, the Shaolin Monks and Nuns were instrumental in the early development of Wing Chun.
As a result, it is possible that they are to be credited with the invention of the Wooden Dummy techniques that are used in Wing Chun. Nevertheless, Ip Man was responsible for a significant reorganization of the Wing Chun system, most notably the dummy form.
As a result, a significant portion of the Dummy form that is still taught today can be ascribed to Ip Man. Ip Man’s method appears to be the most often used, despite the fact that there are still a variety of distinct approaches to performing the form, as demonstrated by the many lineages.
