James' hitting dummy design - a do it yourself kendo uchikomidai
One of the most popular search terms that leads people to this blog is "hitting dummy" or "how to make a hitting dummy". James has sent through pictures of one he made himself, simply by putting a men onto a free-standing punching bag. A great solution! Adjustable height, heavy base. Everything you need really. And much cheaper than a 'real' one like Bob. Thanks for the idea James. I'm going to be checking my stats regularly to see how many hits this idea gets!
