John Woodbridge punching bag inspired by a 1920s model. Handmade using traditional methods and crafted from carefully selected leather, it will add a hint of old-school elegance to your gym !
The punching bag is a classic training aid to the practice of boxing used for hundreds of years, already by pugilists under ancient Greece. The punching bag is used to develop a good technique to hit well in combat. And hitting the bag well does not mean hitting powerfully, but punishing, slamming his blows: "Do not push the bag, hit it! ", As boxing coaches constantly repeat. The bag also allows you to work the footwork, stretching and balance by turning around as if he were an opponent. If the punching bag often punctuates a boxing training session, it is also an excellent practice outside the noble art, a very good way to release tension with fists or feet for any sportsman.
This retro-styled punch bag is handcrafted by John Woodbridge using traditional leathercraft techniques, carefully selected quality leather, and is equipped with stainless steel fasteners and chains. Delivered empty, it can be filled with cloth or old clothes.
The John Woodbridge & Sons Makers punching bag is adapted for the boxing and martial arts practicing. The brown patina of its leather gives a unique vintage style, ideal also for a retro sports decoration. Our leather punching bags are used at Apollo Sporting Club and La Montgolfière boxing gyms in Paris and in some New York and Los Angeles gyms.
