The ishi-sashi, or “stone padlock” as the name translates to, is an old strength training tool from Okinawa (originally from China though) used for training the specific muscles of Karate through highly functional drills and movements.







And for Chinese martial arts











Old dude says Martone who? He's using a 77 pound "shisuo", whatever that is

I honestly have never been very impressed with a lot of the traditional conditioning methods you see from East Asia. They usually strike me as "things you do instead of fighting" (i.e., parlor tricks) rather than "things you do to get ready to fight". Compare these guys with the Indian wrestlers who do squats, pushups, clubs, rope climbing, dumbbells, etc. I know what I think will prepare me to smesh.

Agreed. Achyballs have their place but the Okinawans weren't doing it right.

Probably makiwara is the one thing that I would grant them was effective at preparing for bare knuckle scraps. Chotoku Kyan looks like his hands could punch through stone.

Speaking of Asian ways to train, I agree that they are not necessarily doing things right. When I lived in South Africa I joined a Kung Fu school. The local Si Fu was the descendant of some other Master in China, in other words, a traditional school. Two thirds of a training session consisted of physical challenges: various sadistic obstacle courses and lots of pushups to absolute failure. Then, in the state of complete exhaustion, technical drills and sparring. Didn't make any sense at all. Neither it does from the modern sport science point of view.

Two hands clap and there is a sound. What is the sound of one hand? (隻手声あり、その声を聞け)
