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. This section focuses on training equipment used to improve martial arts techniques (i.e. kicks and punches) and does not look at equipment used for strength training or balance training.

If we are missing any useful martial arts training gear, please contact us and we will add to the list.
