Sagi Makiwara - Karate Training Tool

Sagi Makiwara (or Sage Makiwara) is a wooden striking post that hangs from the ceiling. This martial arts training tool is used for practicing strikes & kicks. It is utilized by some of the more traditional Karate schools. This tool should not be confused with the Makiwara which is a stationary wooden striking board.

The Sagi Makiwara is similar to a punching bag. However, it is much harder because it made out of solid wood and has less padding. In addition to practicing strikes, Karate practitioners also use this tool to toughen their hands, forearms, legs, etc. Moreover, the swinging motion of the hanging Sagi Makiwara allows practitioners to simulate avoiding an opponent's counter strikes and/or body movements.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For information on other traditional training tools, please visit the wiki's section on Martial Arts Training Equipment.
