Training Bags

Banana bags are named after their shape. They are longer and slimmer than the typical American boxing heavy bags.Ā  The banana bagā€™s shape allows users to practice high, body, and especially low kicks accurately.

American heavy bags are wider and more stout than their thai counterparts. This allows a focus on boxing combinations as well as body and high kicks. Ā The added mass helps to build power in strikes.
