This training tool exercises are essentially a sequence of movements.

The Practitioner reacts spontaneously to the Dummy and its attacks.

Without the right degree of concentration your practice could become a thoughtless exercise.

Try not to anticipate what is coming next.

Wooden Dummy Moves:

Since Wooden Dummy movements are pre-set, don’t let them become too mechanical.

Move slowly at first, meanwhile concentrate on your form and structure.

Consequently, you will move faster once you have correct movement and positioning.

If you cannot do the form slow, you won’t be able to perform fast.

The Wooden Dummy is very unforgiving.

If you hit it wrong with bone on wrist, you will learn how important correct body position and placement is.
