    You don't have it secured at the bottom?

    we run a rope through ours with a bungee cord and a weight at the bottom, that way it will spin like a counter puncher, & you can run right/left drills.

    It looks great though.

    You might want to try something else for the top mount, that chain isn't going to last long.

    Its piece of an old heavy bag chain and it would probably last, but I don't like it so much so I'll probably replace it. Keating suggests a bungee cord so its a little more lively. It also makes it possible to achieve certain positions that otherwise don't work (like the reverse neck crank/headlock to body strikes). What do you think?

    He also talks about how you can secure it at the top and bottom, but in the video he doesn't use one like that. Maybe I'll add it on eventually. The long bottom pole counterbalances it enough that its not too much of an issue when it swings around.

    After I play with it some more I might start making modifications.

    When I mentioned the chain, I was talking more about the hook. Looks a little loose.

    That's exactly why we use bungees. Not too sure about the neck crank/headlock jazz, I'm not sure what JAK drills like that.

    Cool, pls keep us posted.

    Its one of those locks/holds you never actually see in sparring because its way hard to get on a resisting opponent but it theoretically can really mess someone up.
