List of Modern Martial Arts Training Equipment

This page provides information on modern martial arts training equipment such as Body Opponent Bags (BOB), Reflex Bags and Rubber Knives. For traditional equipment (such as the Makiwara - a Japanese/Okinawan striking post), please visit the section focused on traditional martial arts training equipment.
