Thread: Wingchun Attachmate Dummy on Punching Bag

    Wingchun Attachmate Dummy on Punching Bag

    This baby is cool, made nicely and now the wooden dummy got to a whole new level of challenge, because it MOVE!!!! with this, you will learn that you cannot hit the dummy too hard or else it will SPIN!

    Great for practicing "silence dummy", which is to do the whole dummy form in the right place but NOT touching the dummy too much!

    forgot to put a note... this attachmate is not easy to setup buy one person, you need two pair of hands to make it easy, one to hold the thing in place and the other guy have to fasten the velcro strip that holds the attachmate onteh sandbag. The velcro is quite long, you can hang it on even larger bags as well. Really cool stuff, you can use this on even the wavemater bags as well

    That's a nice idea. If they came with level arms I'd recommend it to my students.

    I agree with Phil. It seems that it was designed by someone who didn't have WCK experience, but simply has seen a dummy. The arm placement is wrong.
    Again, we go back to that conversation about the offset arms, with people not understanding that they were designed that way so that when placed PROPERLY, they are level.
    Perhaps if enough WCK people contact the company, they will change their design.
    I know I would definately buy one.

    Yes, and the arms are too far apart as well. Not like the wooden one I got in my temple before. (now the dummy is gone) The fun part is about the spinning around and things like that, not the dummy itself, haha!

    And the arms need to be level because we want to keep our body uniformed and equal right? This is an old argument that gets everyone nowhere.

    If you do not know why the arms are offset, then please don't promote the equal arms, especially if you're not a Wing Chun student either!

    I agree that the gap looks far too wide, but it still looks like a fun training addition to your heavy bags

    equal arms or not, I don't care, it doesn't really matter unless you are going to fight dummy for the whole life and not real people.. haha!

    The attachmate is something good to get newbies started and it doesn't cost as much as a real wooden dummy. I got mine before for like $800 CAD with shipping and that's just crazy man, for one training tool? I don't think a newbie like to spend that much and he or she is not even sure about they like to continue the learning or not.. so this thing cost like $100 and it's affordable.. plus they can put that on the punching bag which if they don't train wingchun, they can train other things with the punching bag as well.

    so.. overall, I am okay with this new training tool, for wingchun dummy, it's okay too because the gap is big, but it's understandable because the thing really swing around and it's going to be super hard to do a form on it too, takes practice. I will shoot a video doing a dummy form with it and let people see in the future, it's going to be interesting~

    actually, I used to train in WCK, although I am by no means an expert like yourself..
    And..as far as the "offset design" go look up the other thread on this-especially when they speak of Koo Sang's original designs.

    Wingchun dummy on heavy bag video (first try)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1NgXYoypt0

    The dummy is not dumb, it moves! Not easy, quite challenging for force control and you got to hit straight to not let the bag swing left or right, cool toy~

    Hit harder!

    lose the wing chun junk on that perfectly good heavy bag.

    jab/cross/hook/piston the crap out of that thing, both sides, in and out 2 or 3 minutes at a time non stop.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    I used to, but now I am gentle with it, which is even harder!

    BTW, the bag is 100lb, half as me! haha!
