Sifu Sam Chan’s Mantis and Wooden Dummy DVDs

Last week we pre-announced a gaggle of goodies about to be released into the Plum catalogue. Here are the first two: DVDs from Sifu Sam Hing Fai Chan — one on the Wing Chun Wooden Dummy, the other on Praying Mantis Bonk Bo (Beng Bu). Sifu Chan is best known on Plum for his excellent […]


Special Knowledge

              This week we offer an unusual mix aimed mostly at more advanced information, each in its respective art. For instance the many insights of Yang style Tai Chi Chuan performed by Lin MoGen are embodied in an unusually relaxed and natural version that takes over an hour to […]


Safe, Sound and Shipping

Dear friends, Just a note to let you know that we at Plum are all healthy and safe and still open for correspondence and business. We are monitoring the shipping situation around the world and, so far, packages are being delivered, although it may take a few extra days to receive them. Having suspended classes […]


More on the “Hard” Wing Chun

Here is a DVD on the Wing Chun “Upper Arm” set which we believe correlates to “Searching for the the Bridge” in the Yip Man tradition. This is a “harder” form of Wing Chun, and related to Hung Gar. It is not the only Hard version, but one of the better known. This DVD offers […]

We’ve just added to our hurt books division one of the best explanations of Jeet Kune Do, its working and goals, that we’ve ever seen–Basics of Jeet Kune Do. This is one of the special series on Basics (we also have one by Sifu Paul Eng of Praying Mantis style) relying more on detailed explanations […]


Randy’s Back and Plum Has Got Him

For many years, Plum has represented the entire line of Randy Williams DVDs. But over the last year, some titles became scarce or went out of print. Good news!

Evolution of Wing Chun Kicking Techniques

Happy to announce the arrival of an important new text in the Wing Chun canon: The Evolution of Wing Chun Kung Fu Kicking Techniques.  Osmond Lam’s beautiful book not only shows us some of the principles behind Wing Chun’s special and only sporadically known kicking methods, but adds a good portion of background technique on […]


How to Work the Dummy

It’s solid teak, something that your hand will not let you forget if it happens to meet the wooden body straight on. This reminds us that the first requirement in working with a dummy is that we not injure ourselves so badly that we have no choice but to stop working with the dummy. Also, […]


The Boxing of the Five Ancestors (Updated!)

Though there is a lot of “cross-pollination” in the Northern styles of Kung Fu, it sometimes seems that the Southern boxing forms are particularly adaptable to hybrid forms. Is this possibly because their fighting envelopes are so close to one another? Here are two new books on one of the major hybrids known as the […]

We have just loaded a segment of the well-known instructor Randy Williams demonstrating  adaptations of his beloved Wing Chun style to the ground. There  will of course be some […]
