Hello All, I'm in a bit of a quandary, so any help will be appreciated... My practice space is in my basement, and it has a VERY low ceiling(about 6 feet in total height), so a hanging bag is out of the question... That leaves one of the water(or sand) filled free-standing bags... My quandary is if I want to go with one of those bags, or should I stay traditional and get one of the wall-mounted "clapper" Makiwaras. I consider what I am learning to be a traditional style of Shotokan, and I do like the thought of training in a manner that's somewhat similar to the original intent, however the flexibility of one of those bags is a big plus to me, as well... I can't put a Makiwara outside either(the neighbours already think that we're strange!), however, I came across a Makiwara that is spring-loaded and on a steel base...I guess that you bolt it into the floor, which would work(because I don't care about the floor that much!) Any thoughts, recommendations?
