This person has an excellent idea for bespoke padding for the dummy. This idea of wrapping a yoga mat around the body and few times, taping it and then cutting an 'X' shape in the arm squares is clever.
- This idea means you are not just restricted to the high and low areas, where traditional pads are inserted. You have access to mid-range, and even behind - should that be relevant. Maybe even weak knee strikes could be used.
- He mentions the give in the arms are affected as the mat adds distance, now, so maybe the peg is redundant. (Just don't lap sau in a straight line then, pull down with the lap sau to avoid it pulling out !?).
