Makiwara question

Funakoshi w/makiwara

So, uh, does anyone know how to mount a wall makiwara in an apartment in such a way that the neighbors and landlord won’t kill you?

    I’ve often thought that a free-hanging target might work in this case. Possibly the best solution to the noise factor. Another idea would be to have two Karateka holding a horizontal style board – this is certainly not the most practical for day to day training in your apt, however. Maybe we could incorporate one into the new space somehow? I’d be happy to start a body hardening regime for us as well…

    and now to tease you…

    I’d love to bring it down to the new space! Maybe just to play with.

    I think I’m going to have to have to build it into a freestanding one. Maybe I’ll put a bracket on a 2X4 and plop it in a bucket of sand or something.

    And, the body hardening training, I’m just starting to think it’s probably a good idea. I’ve got the maikwara if you’ve go the timeā€¦
