Proper Striking Technique on a Wavemaster® Freestanding Bag

The 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.
