When I was a kid, my sister and a few of our friends and I would often walk to the local elementary school on weekends. It had a small playground – nothing fancy, but it was close to all our houses. One of our favorite games was to take turns inventing obstacle courses and seeing who could make it through the fastest.

Century Versys Collection

Today, martial artists and fight-fitness athletes have more choices than ever when it comes to getting the perfect bag for their desired workouts. Freestanding bags are a popular choice for individuals and for gyms. They require no hardware, can be easily moved for storage or space-clearing, and don’t damage walls or ceilings when installed.  

Century introduced the world’s first freestanding training bag, the Wavemaster®, in 1995. This game-changing product revolutionized how people practiced martial arts.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a popular martial art with all age groups, and kids are no exception. Teaching BJJ to kids comes with a particular set of challenges, though. Specifically, challenges related to rolling. It’s important that students get the chance to test out the techniques they learn in class. But sometimes, their own energy can get the best of them. Rolling turns into horsing around with a friend. Or an uneven number of students make it to class, leaving one kid the odd man out when it comes time to partner up.
