Nevertheless, it can also be tough on the hands.  It is recommended that you put on proper hand protection before punching it.  The bag comes with a foam filler which is designed to absorb the force from punches and kicks evenly, which helps in keeping the bag stable and yet forgiving.

  • It moves around:  For experienced martial artists, the Wavemaster can easily move around from taking hits, and can be knocked over at higher settings.
  • Noise:  It will splash around when you strike it. If filled with water, it also generates sound from the floor.  When it wobbles, it is better to keep it in the yard or put some padding underneath to reduce the noise.
  • The Century The Original Wavemaster Freestanding Training Bag is firm upon striking, but chances are that it can also break your hand (if not well-protected before training).
