Ground Makiwara

from 120.00

Makiwara

The makiwara is a wooden striking-post used in Okinawan and Japanese martial arts to train striking techniques. The makiwara is not a wooden heavy bag. I cannot emphasize that enough. The makiwara is like a good honing stone. It requires time and repetition. And most importantly it requires skill in operating it. But if you take the time to develop that skill then the results you can achieve are nothing short of astounding.   

The only real problem with the makiwara is where and how to mount them. The first makiwara were half buried in practitioners’ yards. Unfortunately, that is problematic if you don’t live on a subtropical island like Okinawa. This makiwara comes in two pieces so the base can  be securely buried, but the post can be brought inside out of the weather.  The board is 48” (1.2m) tall so it can be used as a naha-makiwara for training in low stances like shieko-dachi, or it can be mounted higher for shuri-makiwara training in taller stances.

The striking post is made of 3.5" (9cm) douglas fir and tapers from 3” (7.6cm) at the base to ¾” (2cm) at the top. The leather pad is 8” (20cm) long, laces up at the back, and includes a rubber insert that offers cushioning but will not break down over time. The base is made of pine, is 43" (1.1m) long, and 18"(0.45m) wide 

 In the box:  48” (1.2m) douglas fir striking post

                   leather pad (color may vary)

                   ground-base   

   installation instructions      

One last DISCLAIMER:  Do not use a makiwara without the experience or supervision to keep you safe. If you do injure yourself stop using the makiwara until you are fully healed. If you are under 18 years old do not strike the makiwara with full power.

 Please contact me if you have any questions. Makiwara are just a part of a whole line Hojo Undo equipment I make including:  olympic and standard weight sized chi ishi handles, nigiri game(gripping jars), and kongokens (weighted ovals and literally the greatest things ever). There are virtually no suppliers of these items so I'm happy to do my part. For pictures of our entire range check out our Facebook page.
