“The makiwara is not here to be hit as hard as you can…it is here to teach you how hard you can hit.”






Punch it

Strike it

Kick it

Hit it



Unify body, mind, spirit, ground

Whole-self commitment

Zero tension

Relax and flow, flow through


Ignore the pain

Accept the pain

Welcome the pain

No more pain



Find the meaning

Todome Waza is primary

Callouses are secondary

Caveman knuckles are just a side-effect
