Century introduced the world’s first freestanding training bag, the Wavemaster®, in 1995. This game-changing product revolutionized how people practiced martial arts. Since then, we’ve invented many other great freestanding bags, like the Wavemaster® 2XL Pro, BOB® the Body Opponent Bag, and, with the greatest variety of bags, the Versys™ collection.

Proper Striking Technique on a Wavemaster® Freestanding Bag

Proper Striking Technique On A Wavemaster Freestanding BagThe Century® Wavemaster® line of punching bags is held in high regard by the world of martial arts. If you’re new to working with a freestanding bag, it pays to learn proper striking technique prior to beginning your workout regimen. Your body will thank you.

Training Equipment

Safety is an important consideration, so before we start talking about technique, let’s go over basic training equipment. Working out with a training bag, no matter the type or brand of bag you use, can be damaging to your hands. It’s a common misconception that if you are strong, you’ll be able to handle striking the bag bare-handed. In fact, this could not be more wrong.  

The stronger you are, the more likely you are to strike the bag with enough force to injure yourself. This is especially true when you first start using a bag and your hands are less conditioned. Proper hand covering, such as hand wraps or bag gloves, is a must. If you’re planning to work on your kicks with the Wavemaster, you might want to consider wearing shin guards and boots or other martial arts-safe shoes. Your feet and shins could suffer damage from unprotected bag workouts.
