I've made myself a home dojo. I call it a karate man cave. I have two students right now and probably room for one more...maybe.

I'll put up some pics later on. Officially the dojo is called 144:1(from psalm).

I may use this thread to seek advice and yes, I was inspired by oldman. smile

Ok, here's 144:1







The room won't support a heavy bag, so we just use eachother.

grin

Matt,

If you ever get the chance you should come down.

"We just use each other", LOL.

Looks really good, bro! How do you like using the double-end bag? I have been thinking about getting one myself.

I like it alot. At first it was beating me up, then I got the hang of it,lol. I can tee off on it and dish out alot of strikes full power now before it goes haywire. I think it's defective because I'm hitting it perfect every time. grin

Brian that looks sic bro.

You can always get a corner man, they go for cheap now a days. I was at Sports Authority the other night they have several models ranging from $70-$99. You can even get a double boxing stand that holds both speed bag and heavy bag for $99. Fits right in the corner.

How much did your wrestling mat cost? I want one of those.

I think the mat was around $400 a few years ago and has held up nicely.

The cornerman is a good idea. I need to check them out at academy, our local sports store.

Here's one at academy for $130, but then you have to buy the bag, speed bag, and weights to hold it down. That will end up costing more than I'm thinking it's worth. The purpose of a heavy bag is so that you can move around,use footwork,and let the swinging be your feedback. With this one you're pretty much stuck in one spot and you might fall on those weights on either side)or atleast I would!).

I'm thinking I need one of these. http://www.academy.com/index.php?page=co...0427-00719-0176

A few years ago they went for $300, so $200 is not a bad price. It won't give you the feedback swing, but it would work for kicking and punching.

Thanks Brad! Where you teach is not nearly as important as the quality of teaching and I know yours is top notch.

We worked out outside for many many years, it's over rated and now I'm soft. smile
