    OK, thanks. That was a pretty impressive dummy form. One of my close friends http://www.grandfatherofrap.com/ did Bak Mei before he moved to Paris. I always liked the style.

    Wow, thanks for sharing those. I'm slowly getting a more complete picture of these device's pervasiveness in (so far) southern styles.

    I have to say about Bak Mei. I feel about it the same way that I do about Julianne Moore. I really don't know much about either, never (to my knowledge) been in close proximity to either, but in both cases somehow I know that I am in love with them. Maybe someday I'll get a chance in one case or another to have a date.

    Okinawa is part of the Ryukyu Islands. The word Ryu in Uechi Ryu means it's from Okinawa and is not "Karate". It's Okinawan and has it's origins in Fukien White Crane Kung Fu. I was stationed on "The Rock" in 66' -67' studied Shorinryu with Eizo Shimabuku. We weren't allowed to use the word Karate for Shorin (Shaolin) Ryu back then. Wado Ryu even has Chi Sao from it's Chinese origins. If you compare Okinawan Goju to Japanese Goju you'll see lower stances and a more kung fu look than Japanese Goju.

    That's an interesting idea for mounting a jong. It seems to be a good, but not ridid base and I suppose that makes it possible to move it around the room.

    I'm becoming happy that I started this thread. I'm learning a lot from it. Thanks to all for contributing.

    wooden dummies evolved from using trees.
