I'm part of this place
without doubt a willing training partner........otherwise a medicine ball, heavy bag, and a wooden log are the things I use the most.
The best training tool is a good uki. Give me someone who is willing to be locked, knows how to fall and is willing to spar and I'm happy.
I'm establishing well
Space - the environment in which I can move freely without having to step back a bit to fit in a form.... where the ground is even enough not to interfere... where I can practice without needing to think much about others.
Time - glorious wonderful free time without distraction and external demands.
Give me those two things (or just the second if you must) and I can find some useful practice / training to do.
No worries Ash, we are all "tools"! Hehehe..

My best or favourite would have to be my hanging bag!! I can train blocks, kicks, strikes, punches and even kumite against it and "it" doesn't get hurt or angry or talk back, hehehe!!!
Secondly I love to train body without any training aids..
