Then I kicked the string once by accident, it wrapped around my foot, and I ripped it out of the ceiling. :icon_sad::5oops:
Try at your own risk, eh

LOL!! That's pretty funny, but I can totally picture that happening. Better luck next time, eh?

People please remember when kicking/striking air or "almost air" (as a TKD practitioner I know what I am talking about) make sure you have full control of the technique at all times and never fully extend the arm/leg because otherwise you will strike/kick "into your joints" which will damage them over time. We have a few old school BB that have issues after years of doing this.

Bungee cords + nerf basketball + duct tape = an excellent way to make a double-end bag CHEAP.
tape the cords to each end of the ball so you have a ball in the middle of a straight line, essentially. Cover the ball with the duct tape, especially the metal parts of the bungee cords. Hook the bottom to a weight and the top to the ceiling, a tree branch, whatever.
It's a great way to work on timing, hand techniques, head movement, etc. Here's a reasonably simple video to show some techniques you can use - more for boxers, but you can adapt to your needs:
