$90.00!? Hey, all you would normally need is some good instruction, which you probably already paid for....

Great, only 90$ for all those benefits. With 90$ you could join a dojo for at least 6 months, but who needs a dojo when you have that amazing tool.

I know plenty of things that are actually useful that cost less.

It was hard to read the website without laughing... especially where it said "you'd expect to pay $184... for 4 velcro wraps and two pieces of cord.

No, but I'll give you a "million dollar smile"...



p.s. Good answer, sunspots

I have a theory that he got this idea by experimenting with how to prevent his dog from whizzing on his pantleg.

it even looks like a double ended dog leash.


hey, maybe if he puts in a scented fly repellant strip, people would be less likely to detect the B.S. this has all over it.

Haha, I have actually used this tool. When I was a yellow belt, and had just began to practice Heian Shodan, I have having the hardest problems going into and holding back stance for the shuto-uke techniques at the end, and an even worse time with back stance in Heian Nidan. This tool is nothing more than a fancy rip cord that you wrap around your legs and arms, so that when you attempt techniques, it makes it increasingly harder to do so. The concept is supposed to be that when you take the ripcord off, since your muscles are so accustomed to the increased pressure, it'll be easier to perform the stance/technique. Well, it works, but not because it's a revolutionary product. You can acheive the same effect with your standard ripcord available where boxing supplies are sold. If you've ever tried the exercise where you tie a ripcord to a post, wrapped it around your foot, and attempted to practice kicks, you'll understand what this thing does.

Hey hey HEY!!

Boxing suppliers sell this for like $15, just because this guy says $90 doesn't mean it's normal. Check ringside.com

But really some people might find it useful but most people in general don't need this.
