    Nothing wrong with training accuracy, but there ARE much less pussified ways of doing it. If you're too goddamn cheap to get a double-end ball, you can rig one up with a couple bungee cords, a roll of foam insulation and some duct tape. Five bucks, five minutes.
    You can also make a nice slip bag pretty easily. I used the sleeve from an old judo gi. Fill it with rice, tie the ends shut and attach a cord to hang it form. I added a couple cups full of bb's for weight and hardness. If you're not much good at dodging or striking, it still makes a great tool for Iron Face training.

    In WC they would hang this piece of paper with a thumb tack against a wall so that you would try to strike the paper so that you'd hear the crisp snap of your fist hitting the paper but not the wall which is approximately 1-2 mm away. It's supposed to build control and precision.

    I must confess that I used to do it, but it really doesn't do anything that other exercises can't do. Kind of dumb, but a cheap way to build control or bust up your hand which was the way it was for me as the wall behind my paper was cement. Gave me strong knuckles though.

    Again, kind of dumb.

    I tried something similar, but it didn't last a day.

    We could turn this thread in a source reading for making your own cheap training material.

    your trying to snap the paper in half with a punch or a kick. punch/kick at it and when you hit it, bring your foot/hand fast as you can. don't go through.. that's cheating. if you can actually pull it off then yeah it means you have really good technique..

    No. Knocking someone to the floor means you have done an adequate punching or kicking technique. If they are unable to stand afterward you have done a good punching or kicking technique. This of course, only counts if done in full-contact sparring or in an acutal fight. Otherwise you are just a ***** playing a pointless game.

    Well that's why I don't practice snapping paper. I've seen alot of people doing it though. If you watched the Tony Valente video under the "Bruce Lee is rolling in his grave" thread, you saw that he was trying to snap it with his punch.

    If your opponant is reduced to a fine red mist, you have done an excellant punching or kicking technique.

    Could be pretty productive, since I don't think I'm the only one who's broke around here.
    My newest toy is a basketball filled with sand and hung on a rope. Naturally, this required a good bit of duct tape. Great for throwing uppercuts and knees, but that fucker is HARD. I'm gonna take some of the sand out of it.
    BTW, a stack of old tires makes a pretty good heavybag.
