Makiwara Monday: very very tough! But also smart?

Some people like it tough. The Wado-Ryu Karateka in this video refuses to use a Makiwara covered with rope or leather. Instead, he punches the plain board and creates the impression as if his knuckles were made of steel. On the other hand, the power behind his Zukis appears to be devastating. However, the question arises: Is it smart to train this way? For how many years can somebody can train like that before the fingers are ruined? Or is it necessary to train like that? What do you think? Write us a comment.

If you know the name of the Karateka and/or the video, from which the footage is, please send us a message.
