Makiwara (Wall Base Only)

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 with a 18” (46cm)base pre-drilled to be attached to any wall with standard 16” (41cm) studs. It can also be attached to a concrete wall. An added bonus of this method is that it can be attached at any height so your makiwara can be exactly where you need it. 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.

This listing is for the base only. No post is included. The base is made of pine. It measures 18” (46cm) long and 8” (20cm) tall. It has three pre-drilled holes on each side that can be used with whatever hardware is needed to attach it to your surface. 

 In the box:  wall-base

                   (2) carriage bolts

              

 Not all walls have 16” (41cm) studs. Please locate your studs before ordering. If they are not standard we are happy to make a base to order for your wall. Just send me a message before ordering to let me know and I'll make sure it's done to your specifications. Ordinarily there is no extra charge although it will effect handling times. 

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), tetsutaba (wire hitter), ishi sashi (stone hand weights), 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.

Will ship world-wide!
