    Hi,

    How much does this item sell for?
    are there different types?
    How can I make one?

    * It is hard for me to describe but it is a a small bag that you can put on your wall and it is filled with beads or rice or something soft yet firm.
    Kung fu guys use them to punch into I think.

    size is probably 30cm by 30cm

    Makiwara. People use steel shot to fill them too sometimes.

    Just google "iron palm training" and you'll get lots of sites selling them. I bought some many years ago when I was taking kung fu - mine was filled with crushed granite, and if I remember correctly they're pretty damn inexpensive.
