Does anybody train with these? I just got the James Keating and Pete Kautz Desquerdes DVD, and I've been inspired to make a few and get to work.
yes, & they're quite easy to make out of PVC, rope, & a few tennis balls.
Start slow, these things can snap back worse than double-end bags.
That's exactly the design Kautz describes.
James Keating is a weird guy I'd like to hang out with.

They cover drills, don't they?
I agree, JAK must be a fun guy to know. I check out the maajak site a few times a week to see what he's got up. Sometimes interesting, sometimes informative, & sometimes kooky, but never boring!

They cover lots of drills, using it as a hanging device, hanging with a rattan ring, on the ground as a quadrant boundary and using it for grappling.
Where'd you pick that up again?
Its from Alliance Martial Arts.
I'm going to the hardware store in a few minutes to get the supplies. He mentions that traditionally they are heavier and wood, and eventually it may be useful to make one. What do you think of a heavier wooden one?
Imagine a Mook Jong that hits back, right from the start...
Start with PVC & work up to hardwood. It would seem a natural progression to me.
I just finished building the thing. I'm used to wooden dummies, so the motion is odd. I'll take some pics soon.
Cool. Looking forward to it.
