So, I have never really spent time with a speed bag. It turns out, I did not even properly know how to hit one. In the past, I have stood directly under the bag and tried to just keep it going, in hindsight, it kind of amazes me that I thought this is how you used one for so many years, but there you go. A little embarassing, but the heavy bag, makiwara and occasional headache bag have been the mainstays of my "hittin stuff" Karate life.
Now that I know the proper method I am -really- enjoying it.
I was curious what people think of the utility of a speedbag for applied Karate training, and whether you have any routines you'd like to share.
