View Full Version : Makiwara

16th September 2002, 10:37
G'day fellow Jujutsu folk!

I recently constructed a makiwara in my garden with which to practise my atemiwaza.
I am wondering if anyone here has ever used a makiwara as an aid to their own Jujutsu training?
If so do you still use it as a training aid?
How did/do you find it? Do you feel it is a valuable adjunct to more traditionally accociated Jujutsu practise?

I have personally never really used one but am of the school of thought that anything that can help my Jujutsu is welcome in my garden!:)
I am greatful for any feedback!

Respectfully Yours
