Does anyone have any experience with small, wall hainging makiwara (examples below)?
I am currently living in an apartment, and am interested to know if such items are likely to damage my walls or create disturbances for my neighbors?
Perhaps more importantly, I would like to know if these products actually provide the same kind of training benefits as a stand up Makiwara one might place in the backyard? I like to train on the makiwara because of what it teaches me about structure and penetrating power more so than the way it conditions my striking surfaces. Have you found these items to provide the same type of resistance and feedback as a standing makiwara?
My other option would be a makiwara with a stand. Preferably one that would be easy to store in my closet when not in use, as my space is limited. Does any one have recommendations for such an item?
I appreciate your help!
