    great job.


    the arm will be better if it can be adjust up to face level, and may be control the strength of the spring.

    I use to use tree trunk to practice these when I was in college since I live in dorm. and ofcorse wearing a pair of safety glasses.

    I like it, and when I have the space and money (and semi-approval of the wife) for such things, you bet I will be buying from you guys.

    on a serious note and getting past the phallic issues, the angle and direction of the pressure seem wrong for me with regards many of the techniques being practised. For example the guy in the vid is having to press down with his techniques to generate resistance, which is not the angle that a punch would be travelling from and develops habits such as flattening the tarn sau ( fine if you want to transition to po pai jeung but in general). If the spring loading was towards the practitioner it would be more useful but then again thats what frame mounted dummies provide.

    @Shaolinhouse - I noticed you had a video about constructing the dummy arms. Any vids about making dummy bodies? Also, in the background of the arm-making video are those planks of wood being laminated to turn into bodies?

    I can't determine if it is representive of a tall man or a short man. Actually, the arm is mounted sort of low. I would change the shape it if were mine too.
