The mook jong, or wooden dummy, is one of the most versatile and effective martial arts training devices ever developed. Unfortunately, commercial dummies cost anywhere from $500 to more than $1,000 - well beyond the reach of the average martial artist. Now, thanks to this new book, anyone with some simple hand tools can make a wooden dummy for well under $100. Veteran martial artist Michael Janich takes you step by step through the process of building a traditional dummy that is proportionate to your height and reach, as well as constructing in-ground, wall-mounted and freestanding support platforms. He also shows you how to build his innovative Human Response dummy, a modern spring-loaded variant of the traditional dummy that provides almost human movement and allows the realistic practice of virtually any martial arts technique.
