If you are looking to get started with a Wing Chun wall bag, Jonathan Petree’s video “Complete Wall Bag Training Regimen For Developing Striking Power” is an excellent video to watch. He teaches everything from why you need to add wall bag training into your current regiment, to how to properly use your horse, to how to install it, to how to hit the bag and why.

Ok! Here are the parts needed to make your own wing chun spring-arm trainer. This is my 2nd attempt and both turned-out awesome! I built my 2nd spring-arm in one evening after work, it doesn’t require an engineers degree.
After breaking my single section wall bag, I decided to replace it with a 3 section wall bag. My goal was to get something that will last a long time and I never used before. I watched a few online videos and it just seemed like I could do more stuff with a 3-section bag. From what I saw it looked like I could train more combinations and even kicks.
Now that I have it, I’ve come to the conclusion the 3-section wall bag made by Everything Wing Chun is a pretty cool piece of equipment.
For all the technique and execution that can be honed via punching, kicking, or otherwise striking at air, it’s difficult to attain true practical mastery of any striking martial art without actually making contact with something solid.
After all, would the All-Pro lineman who never hits a blocking sled or clean-up hitter who never sees the inside of a batting cage please step forward? Anyone?
Shadowboxing may develop execution and speed, but only hitting an actual surface that provides some resistance ties power to technique. With that in mind, every Wing Chun kung fu student worth his or her salt ought to own at least one set of sand punching pads.
A common question we get from customers is, “What do I fill my wallbag with?” Typically our answer is, “Ask your Sifu!”, because your Sifu is the one in charge of your training and many Sifus have specific requirements or specific recommendations for your training. But if you are new, without a Sifu, or just curious then this is what we recommend:
We are starting to compile a list of companies ripping Wing Chun people off. They will be on our blacklist – and we would like all of you to contribute to the list as well. Been ripped off – tell us! Maybe we can put some of these thieves out of business and warn others before they get ripped off as well. I’ve seen too many Sifus (and customers!) ripped off to not try and make this list for all.
Topping the list right now is Warmonger – a Pakistani manufacturer.
