How To Use A Kicking Bag - Martial Arts Training Tool

This page provides details on how to use a heavy kicking bag for martial arts training. Kicking bags include free standing equipment (such as Wavemaster and Bob - Body Opponent Bag) and heavy bags that hang from the ceiling or a rack. You should also visit our section focused on Kicking Bag Drills.

Kicking bags are padded training tools used primarily as a target for a martial artist's kicks. They are also useful for practicing punches and strikes.

Since kicking bags are a heavy-duty type of training equipment, they are often used in order to practice "power" kicks and punches. In contrast, focus mitts and kicking paddles are used more for accuracy training. Moreover, since kicking bags tend to be life-sized, martial artists can practice a great variety of strike angles and heights without the need for a training partner.

For more equipment "how to" instructions and drills, please visit the main Martial Arts Training Equipment section.
