    Desquerdes

    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.

    I hope that they cover more in the vid than construction of the equipment.
    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.

    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.
