Wing Tsun Dummy Tehniques


Wing Tsun Dummy Tehniques – Yip Man


The 116 Wing Tsun Dummy Techniques is the name of a book being planned for publication ever since the death of my father, the late Grandmaster Yip Man. As the heir of the grandmaster Of a style of Chinese Kung-fu, I feel it my responsibility to put into print, the techniques of the wooden dummy, which form the essential part of Wing Tsun Kuen, and to allow readers and enthusiasts of martial art to understand, through the aid of a set of photos passed to me by my father, the ways of applying these techniques. However, publication Of the book was delayed, because I was aware of the fact that many fallow tutors of Wing Tsun Style were teaching the Wooden Dummy Ttchniques in ways quite different from those my father taught me. The appearance of the book might, as I thought earlier, make these tutors feel embarrassed.

During the past year, a tutor edited a book in my name, in which the photos used as illustrations were part of my collection I obtained from my father. I really didn't know how he got these photos. What makes me tick is the disorderly arrangements of the materials, and the incorrect and incomplete explanations and demonstrations. That book will surely blur the image of my father, and lead readers into misbelieve of wrong techniques. That is why I find it necessary to publish my own book.

I with to thank my kung-fu brother Dr. Leung Ting for offering his opinion throughout the planning of this book, and helping me in every way when putting it into print.

It is my sincere wish that readers will find this book helpful not only as • reference book of martial arts, but also as an indispensable aid while taking courses of Wing Tsun Kung-fu.
