Advancing the Legwork of the Wooden Dummy

Apply and defend against all manner of kicks, sweeps, leg locks, leg checks and kick checks by learning to master the lost study of plum flower posts.

It’s time to rediscover the forgotten secrets to harnessing and wielding the power of the plum flower posts in combat. The missing link for training the Wing Chun stance, this book helps intermediate students and practitioners reach the highest levels of proficiency, teaching leg skills, sticking skills, good positioning, and checking and immobilization skills.

The plum flower posts consist of 11 posts–10 wooden gerk jong, or legwork posts, and one mok yan jong, or wooden man post. Together, they complete a set called the moy fa jong. The wooden dummy trains practitioners to protect the upper centerline by applying hard techniques with proper distance, position, and leg control, while the gerk jong are designed and placed to train all elements of legwork and manage the lower centerline.

A valuable training tool for any and all styles and families of Wing Chun, mastering the posts ensures that you never lose a fight due to lost balance or bad positioning; fall from leg sweeps, leg locks, or leg checks; or miss the knockout because of poor distance or knockout power. Comprehensively written and supplemented with 180 full-color illustrations and photos, Wing Chun Plum Flower Posts is an essential resource for Wing Chun students, practitioners, and teachers looking to expand their knowledge base and skill set.
