somebody already took them. aaaahhh well, maybe next time.

but always interested in working on the fundamentals - rooting, balance, dropping into solid structure/stance at a moment's notice. I suppose I could just stand on it and do mabu or whatever, step from one to the other with good posture, etc. stack them, do mabu lol

and there's grip too - maybe tossing it up in the air and catching it like the disciples at the retreat center do with cinder blocks?

there's a video of some guy on youtube going to town on a half of a tire mounted to a piece of plywood with a sledgehammer.

but anything really, no skill or gong in particular - just curious to hear some ideas of things I haven't thought of or if your teachers or brothers have mentioned specific exercises to do with a couple of old tires.

Cut two tires in half and use three of the pieces to mount on a bored in a T shape. Good for striking zones but I think it would work better for practicing weapons or kicks as the strange angels could damage a fist if you did anything to involved.

Stack many tires up around a post to form a punch kick bag, bag gloves mandatory.

Tia one tire to a tree on one rim so it sticks out and kick it. Hit it with open palm strikes for developing compression power and penetration. Elbow strikes. Hit it with sticks.

Hang a tire from a rope and hit it with a stick.

Lay the tires out and do some agility training as in foot ball.

Put one tire on end and practice downwards palm strikes for developing compression power and penetration.

Throw a tire in the air and catch it, try to spin it in many ways.

Tie a rope to the tire and then around you waste then run.

I have some summer tires that were to worn to put back on so I may try some of this.

I think I have seen a few more but that is a list to start with.

Thanks for the ideas! certainly a good list to start with.
I especially like the tie to tree/hanging from a tree and striking with feet, palms, and elbow, stick/weapons ; throwing up in the air, catching and spinning in many ways ; Tie to the waist and run; and laying flat downward palm strikes to develop compression power and penetration. Will try those when I see some tires again.

I am not sure if I am too late, since I only saw this thread today. Likewise I am not really sure how practical the following plans are, but I came across them today when I was reading something else and it made me think of this thread:

http://books.google.com/books?id=e9YDAA ... &q&f=false

The author of the article in question even suggested that the tire dummy in question would end up being quite useful as far as kicks were concerned. That seems to be in agreement with what some of the others around here had said about constructing one.

Frankly I would like to see what you came up with, though I realize that sharing some photographs might be a little awkward. If I were the one who was so lucky to have some extra tires I suppose I would want to avoid cutting them up if that were an option personally.

It gives less of an opportunity to really mess things up, which would probably be useful with the way that my projects have a tendency to not quite match the images in the manual if that makes any sense at all.

This is all good food for thought for the future. I was indecisive and waited too long to grab them. early the next morning (garbage day) they were already gone. oh well

for the best for now - my wife doesn't like clutter, so when I bring stuff home I'd better have a good idea of what to do with it :lol:

next time, I'll quickly incorporate them into training and let you know what I decided. :wink:
