Woodendummy Ltd is dedicated to offering high quality Wing Chun Wooden Dummys. We have the advantage of being able to pay extra special attention to every single customer. Through the workshops of our sister company in China we can cater for all the special requirements requested. Each of our Wing Chun wooden dummies are made by 3 different craftspeople who each have their own specialisation. The body, arms and legs are crafted from Elm trees. Elm was traditionally used as pillars in countryside houses and temples and is therefore an excellent choice when considering price & quality.
Only the best reclaimed old elm is used. This means that the trees were cut down a long time ago and at least 60 years old when they were cut down making this the best quality wood. This is better for the environment and also since the wood has been around for a long time It is very dry and therefore excellent for exporting.
We choose this wood because of its special qualities. It is very strong and can withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Old Elm wood is especially good for Wing Chun due to its outer softness and inner strength like steel wrapped with cotton. When the golden brown color streaks through the wood it looks like sun rays in a sunset.
The best feature of the Dummy is the leg. It is one solid piece of Elm from the trunk to the ground. Also the leg has a bit of room in the trunk to move around. This makes it great for practicing sweeping techniques.
