    A kick like that could definitely be useful. I train similar things on a rig I set up recently. On my Title Big Bang heavy bag, I suspended a small log wrapped in manilla rope from the bottom ring (then the log is connected to a weighted base). I'm not sure if I'll leave it there.

    The training with the partner touching the staff to the ground like a shin seemed good too.

    I'm trying to not be critical but the sparring didn't look like anything other than a slapping contest. Why do Chinese martial artists always pride themselves on their "unique" conditioning exercises?

    Seriously, having put five years into CMA in the past I still root for it (CMA is like the little guy who gets beat up repeatedly, you'd just love to see him win ONE fight) but the community needs to focus more on the fighting applications and less on their "unique" conditioning techniques. A sprint is a sprint...
