The trainer is the perfect tool to use if you don't have a partner and can't afford or don't have the room for a full blown wooden dummy. I love the spring tensioned arm. Its just the right amount of tension and is great for lop sau and other trapping drills. This will definitely be a center piece in my Jeet Kune Do studio. This is a must for anyone serious about their martial arts training. Great for practicing your parries, interceptions, trapping and just learning to work around the guard in general. This provides the sort of 'biofeedback' (touch training) that is necessary in styles like JKD and Wing Chun. I don't always have a partner around to train with and this is the next best thing.
Thank you Warrior Martial Arts for making such a great product... just answer emails and phone calls next time.
After owning this item for about 5 months I have found that it did not hold up at all to rigorous use. My biggest point of contention being the way the arm is constructed. I broke it twice during lop sau drills. It is welded spring steel (and poorly welded at that), and in case you don't know, spring steel is not a good metal to weld. Both times the arm broke it was where the spring was welded to the base plate (first at one end, and then the other end). I had it re-welded, but I already know its integrity is compromised and I am looking for more solid and durable builds in case it does not hold up this go-around. I also had a problem with the canvas sleeve on the arm: I kept pulling it off (again, during lop sau drills). A zip tie replaced the string that held it on to the arm. No problems there since I did that.
My other issue in construction is the canvas bags used. A structural weak point in the whole design is the bags can't take the strain placed on the points where they are attached to the mount. I've had to replace both with a hanging, two section bag that does not attach to the mount on the bottom. It has held up much better, but I am thinking of switching even that one out to a leather striking bag.
All in all, its a great idea that needs re-engineering for guys like me that don't see the point in being gentle with our training equipment.
I am now in the process of trying to replace the PVC with a wooden dowel. Hopefully that will be stronger and able to last more than a couple of months. This is not easy because the spring requires a fine threaded bolt and so far I can't find a local hardware store which stocks something like that.
This is a great idea so I am not going to bash them but for the price they are charging, they should at least make it look like some time was put into manufacturing it. For $225 you can probably build 5-10 of these in your backyard. Maybe with the profit they are making they will put a little more time and effort into it. I will install it on my wall and comeback with a review of how durable it is.
