Muk Yan Chong translates as Wooden Man
The wooden dummy or wooden man form consists of seven sections with each section consisting of various techniques that in turn have a practical fighting application associated with each one. The whole form is in fact a culmination of the moves and footwork learnt and developed in the hand forms. The dummy body is made from a solid piece of hardwood with three arms and one leg set out to quite critical angles and dimensions in order to constrict your movements to a certain degree in order to correct your position
and angle of attack, this in turn helps the development of footwork and enhances the practitioners ability to move around an opponent while maintaining a close distance.
