Well, the only advise I can give you to prove that it isnt 'sissy' is to simply get one and hit it a few hundred times a day.

Because I think you wont just take our word for it.

I'm not sure but you can e-mail the dude and find out. He's usually pretty good about answering e-mails, the address is at the bottom of the homepage.

Hi mr crablord

If you do and want some advise then take it easy. Dont go nuts on the maki wari.Dont throw your punches full power. Take your time.

Think mr storm dragon and others are doing fine on their maki waris?
Perhaps if you discuss it?

Just a suggestion

Im sure Jon can ship to Oz, it would be expensive. However he is always happy to advise on making your own or purchasing locally etc etc.

Im also happy to discuss makiwara with anyone interested, its better if you are of 'adult' age though. Until then Heavy Bag is best.

Ive loaded my heavy bag with sandbags, but it still isnt as hard as id like, I just want a tool to turn my hands into lifeless pieces of cement, because I hate it when my wrist bends, or my knuckles injure. Which is basiclly why I made this topic. Oh yeah I had a look on ebay, im gonna buy one that hangs on your wall.

I'll post something more constructive later but right now I simply cannot get that thought out my head. "lifeless peices of cement", Seriously, I'm dying here.
