I recently made a peice of equipment that is simple in design, cheap, easy to make and works well for building had eye co-ordination.

You need:

a piece of thin elastic
a tennis ball
a headband or sweatband
and some duct tape

Construction:

Tie one end of the elastic to the head band. Then tie and tape the other end of the elastic to the tennis ball.

How to use it:

Basically put the headband on your head so that the ball hangs down your front to about belly-button height. Then punch the ball with alternate hands(it snaps back towards your face each time you punch, so if u miss it... )

I have seen some boxers and other martial artists use this in their training and thought i would post the info here for people who havnt seen it before.

I bet its really funny to watch someone use that.

Someone trying to fight off a swarm of killer bees comes to mind.

LOL! killer bees - that's a good one!

I bet something like that really improves your reflexes, though. After you've been smacked in the face a few times you're bound to start blocking it!
