It’s that time of year again… Christmas is just around the corner. Time to think about gifts for martial artists.
Have you gotten all the stockings stuffed for your favorite Wing Chun’er (including yourself)?
What do you get a Martial Artist for Christmas?
Check out these unique and dynamic kung fu gifts. There’s a little for everyone. And a little to cover almost every aspect of training, learning, and improving Wing Chun…
Gifts for Martial Artists – Enjoy an Ip Man Film Festival at Home or at the Kwoon…
Before there was Bruce Lee, there was his sifu, Ip Man. In fact, you could say that he’s almost more popular today than Bruce. Since the early 2000s, over five different movies have been made about his life!
The Grandmaster is the most 'artistic' version of his life. But still full of beat 'em up. And your non-martial arts friends will enjoy it too.
This is the first Ip Man movie. Donnie Yen stars, and this is the film that gave birth to all the rest. It's also on my Top 10 favorite Kung Fu movies!
IP Man 2
This is Ip Man part 2 starring Donnie Yen. Not bad, but not as great as the first one he made.
IP Man 3
This is Ip Man, part 3, starring Donnie Yen. This was much better than #2 but not as good as #1. Number 1 is the best
Ip Man: The Legend is Born
Ip Man: The Legend is Born is fun to watch because his son, Ip Chun, guest stars in it and because it focuses on how he learned Wing Chun from his own sifus.

Wing Chun Rings? The Ring to Rule Them All
A pair of Wing Chun Butterfly Swords (8 Slash Swords)
The Wing Chun training ring is one of the most versatile training tools around. And it doesn't take up much space, either. Check out the selection of training rings available.
Gifts for Martial Artists - Sparring Gear
Sparring Gear: Gloves and Headgear
Test your fighting skills safely through sparring. It's one of the safest methods available. Make sure to use some basic safety gear like heavy boxing gloves, light MMA-style gloves, and headgear. Check out the selection at Amazon. And remember to keep your guard up.
Sparring Gear: Mouth Guard
If you're sparring for fun, fitness, and to test your martial arts skill, protect your pretty smile with a mouth guard. I use the Brain-Pad mouth guard. A mouth guard can help protect your teeth and protect your brain from blacking out when you get hit in the jaw (jaw bone shifts back and hits your brain, ouch!). 9.1) If you're a man, you should consider groin protection as well.
Sparring Gear: Shin Guards
I hope you’re getting the picture. You can make your training realistic and rough, but keep your safety and health in mind. You can’t train when injured.
Shin guards let you kick hard or get kicked hard and learn from it, not end up in the hospital.
Gifts for Martial Artists - Heal the Love with a Bottle of Dit Da Jow...
When you or your favorite Wing Chun’er trains often and hard, small injuries are bound to happen.
Bruises, sprains, and sore muscles. Nothing that needs medical attention but can be made right with generous amounts of Dit Da Jow. Get the healing juice to fix all the love taps.

Unwrap a 9 Foot Dragon Pole…
The Dragon Pole, or the 6 1/2 Point Pole (Luk Dim Boon Kwan), is Wing Chun’s long distance weapon. Some reports say they were as long as 13 feet (~4 meters) in the old days.
It’s nearly impossible to buy that size today. You can find 6 feet poles almost anywhere, but that really isn’t ‘long’. Fortunately, EWC has 8 to 9 feet long (~2.4 to 2.7 meters) poles. Buy one, then reach out and touch someone.
Dragon Pole Video Bundle (Download) by sifu Wayne Belonoha
When you own a Dragon Pole, you better know how to use it! This downloadable DVD series teaches you what you need to know.
Be The Big Buddha: Give Away a Wooden Dummy!
If you really want to make a statement and give a gift they’ll always remember, buy them a Wing Chun wooden dummy. A present like this lasts generations!
The one pictured to the left belonged to Bruce Lee! It was recently auctioned off in Hong Kong. I wonder what stories it could tell?
Gifts for Martial Artists – Hands of Steel: Iron Palm Training
My two sifus went though this training, more than once. And they told me it’s a commitment… to pain.
But at the end of their many month’s journey, they ended up with hands of steel. If you’re ready, learn more and buy Iron Palm training gear here.
Escrima/Kali Sticks: The Best Butterfly Sword Cross-training Weapons…
These are not traditional Wing Chun weapons. But they’re practical and efficient. Plus, you’re more likely to find two sticks (or pipes or bats or hammers) to fight with than two swords.
Get a pair of escrima/kali sticks and start breaking things.
Ever Get Sore From Chi Sao Training?
If you get sore from Wing Chun or working out, you have to do what’s called ‘myofascial massage.’ This is not a beauty massage. This is digging into your flesh and releasing your knots and tightness by hand. But fingers get tired. Lacrosse balls, like the ones pictured, are a blessing for SELF-myofascial massage and faster recovery.
Ever Have Trouble Getting a Deep Stretch?
You can’t reach every muscle by stretching. For the longest time I’ve had trouble really stretching out my legs. I couldn’t bend far or deep enough.
But I discovered that a deep tissue massage could get to those knots and roll them out.
This is my Rumble Roller. It’s great for the legs, back, neck, abdomen, chest, arms, lats… almost anywhere you can get leverage.
Get the ‘firm’ knobby one. The more it hurts, the tighter and older the knots.

Grab a Massage Gun and Let it Do the Work
The only problem with massaging tools is that you have to do a lot of work getting deep into your muscles to get any benefit.
This is tiring.
But an electric massage gun does 90% of the work for you. You just need to apply enough pressure to get it as deep as you can handle or that you need.
These 18 gift ideas should be more than enough to get you started and help you finish grabbing meaningful and useful gifts for martial artists in your life.
