Karate's Wooden Dummy: The Kakiya/Kakete-Biki

Hello, everyone!

During this pandemic, I have noticed that many karateka have been developing their own versions of this old-school piece of training equipment, which had fallen out of fashion with most for quite some time. That's very exciting for me, since I have loved using this tool for years, and have long thought it should be a standard piece of kit for dedicated karateka! I figured I would go into a bit more detail on how different versions of them can work in an article, and hopefully some people find this useful!

I would very much like to acquire one of these things without spending a fortune. There are several useful 'how to build one' videos on YouTube.
