    Punching Trees?

    No, no, no, That is what God made small, annoying children for.

    Remember : Trees are for looking pretty and maintaing co2-o2 balance,
    Annoying children are for punching and hardening training.

    You're supposed to use slender trees that bend when you hit, sort-of like nature's makiwara. So it's only half as retarded as people are imagining (which still makes it pretty retarded unless you're trapped on a desert island).

    Punching the trees comes from Thailand.
    Where they used to punch and kick banana 'trees' (technically it are banana 'plants'), which are nature's punchingbag.
    Add that with the misconception that most have about banana trees being like coconut trees with just bananas hanging from them instead of coconuts, you get the perfect recepie for myths and accidents.

    About three/four years ago, a friend and I went on holiday to Spain.
    He was boosting about hitting a tree with his shin (he did Kickboxing). Lucky for him was that he knew that it were banana trees and not oaks to kick, unlucky for him was that he didn't know about the difference between banana trees and coconut trees...

    Let's just say that we both where dying a little bit after he kicked a coconut tree besides the road in Sevilla. He from the pain, me from laughing so loud that I couldn't catch my breath.:toothy9:

    Well I punched a tree right in the crotch at a rest stop in Oregon the other day, and so far nothing has torn down any walls where I'm staying, so I think I may have gotten lucky.

    That's cool to know about the Banana trees, and it makes more sense.

    I'm on vacation up in Washington state, and instead of using my punching bag, I've been attempting to use my sensei, but for some reason I don't seem to be landing quite as many blows, and the punching bag never back kicked me in the stomach when I charged it. Hm.
