The Wooden Man also known as Fut Sao 108. The culmination of the individual student’s empty-hand training is the Mok Yahn Jong (Wooden Dummy) form. This form is practiced on a wooden training apparatus to allow the student to apply techniques with springy ging power. This is also done on a stake post or in a low horse and with the Baat Jam Do Butterfly knives. This advanced form of the Fut Sao training curriculum includes the major concepts of all previous forms plus it's own advanced Fa Ging and Dim Mak techniques.
Two-person training exercises are meant to enhance students’ fighting skills by improving their speed, timing, power and sensitivity, and by helping them be at ease with a fighting situation with applications from the forms in fast-paced, close range fighting simulation. It is believed the idea for two man sets came from the possible integration of Southern Praying Mantis two man-sets.
