Angelica Puertas from Venezuela kindly allowed us to share her Makiwara workout video.
To find women, who train at the Makiwara, is a difficult task. We can only speculate about the reasons and would like to encourage more women to use this devise.
However, Angelica enjoys the training and has an incredible punch. She moves her arm in a strait forward direction initiated by a strong but relaxed hip-rotation. Her arm is fully stretched when it reaches the target. Thus, the punch becomes very powerful with low effort. And it looks just elegant. Oss!
