HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO THE HEAVY BAG?
How the Century Wavemaster matches up to a heavy bag
depends on how you intend to use one. If you are going to practices punches in moderation or are
a beginner or don't hit that hard, this bag is awesome and so affordable too!
If you are a heavy hitter or are quite advanced, you might do better with the Wavemaster
XXL or a heavy bag.
History of the Heavy Bag
Punching Bags have been around as long as the Martial Arts, hundreds and hundreds of years. Not only
were they used by Martial Artists, but by those in the Military and for Weapons Training too.
The Okinawan Makiwara was used for various forms of Karate. It was basically nothing more
than a padded striking post. The posts were generally about 7 or maybe 8 feet long and
were driven into the ground to where they were come to somewhere along the shoulderline.
A pad of rice straw tied with rope made for the striking surface.
The Makiwara was used pretty much the same way as a boxer uses a heavy bag, through practicing
resistance, accuracy and force.
The Chinese Mook Jong was another ancient Heavy Bag. Like the Wing Chun Dummy, it was
a dummy made from wood that replicated a human opponent in some ways. There were many styles of the
Mook Jong. Some focused on an arm and leg configuration while others portrayed the neck and arms or other
key target body parts.
The Makiwara and the Mook Jong were primitive indeed but they got the job done, or at least
to some extent.
Today both the hanging Heavy Bags and the Freestanding Bags have changed dramatically but with
the same concept...working to perfect strikes, punches, kicks!
The Wavemaster of today is a product of modern technology and is has
advanced so much but Century has made it even better now.
