In my basement guan this evening, after finishing my knee exercises and the Sun taijiquan short form, I began to look around my entire basement, when I realised, the only thing older than my old Everlast kick bag in my basement..... me....and then I remembered there was one other thing older than the kick bag
But I am still older than both of them...
I got both of them sometime around 6th grade and the kick bag has been through Japanese Jujutsu, TKD, Karate, Long Fist, Taijiquan, Wing Chun, JKD, Sanda, Xingyiquan, Bagua and probably a couple more I'm forgetting.
A few years back I did buy a newer, heavier, leather bag, but I just did not like it as much as my old kick bag, So the new one currently sits in the corner and the old one, that is close to 50 years old, is still hanging there getting hit. It is not getting hit as much as it use to, but it is still getting hit.
This summer I may refill the new bag with a different material and start using it, but I have grown attached to this old beat up, torn up kick bag. It has taken a beating. And as bad as it looks, it is still taking a beating. And it is the oldest piece of training equipment I have
Oh, and I like the book too
