Pars of the Siu Lam Wing Chun have their origin in the curriculum of the Tang Family and that includes a unique training device, the longpole dummy.
The longpole techniques are trained on it, as well as the special footwork of the Siu Lam Wing Chun longpole. The dummy is a wooden rack with seven longpoles and a plaque in the center.
This unique complex training method has often been copied and was never achieved.
The form used to be passed only within the Tang Family.
