A Makiwara is an ancient training tool to hone striking and condition the body. We carry Makiwaras capable of mounting for convenience but still offer the focus and conditioning of those used in ancient times.
To make one's fist a weapon, training is essential both in focus and conditioning. A Makiwara aids in both by requiring the martial arts practitioner to focus on hitting a target directly without glancing. It also assists in toughening the surfaces of the body used in striking like the fist. Over time the skin will become calloused and able to take rough and hard surfaces without injury.
