Century Versys Youth Training Bag
The Versys is a new line of training bags that Century debuted in 2013. While there are several good adult bags in the line, they also produced a very good youth bag. This bag is more expensive than some other youth bags, so if price is a concern you may want to look elsewhere. However, we think it is a very high quality bag and it’s worth the price if you can afford it.
Like many other bags in the Versys line, the youth bag has avery low profile base and a tall bag that sits on top of it. This lets your kid practice all kinds of strikes without worrying too much about kicking the base with a low kick. The large bag provides a good deal of striking surface, so your child will be able to practice a variety of kicks, punches and other techniques.
This bag is designed to be lighter than other kids punching bags and weighs just 40 pounds. This is so it can easily be picked up on tossed on the floor. This allows your kid to practice pretending to throw an opponent and it also lets them practice working on their ground training. Of course the light weight means that it isn’t as stable when standing up as other bags. So if your child hits it with enough power it’s possible they might knock the bag down. But of course because it weighs only 40 pounds it’s pretty easy to pick back up again if this happens.
Overall we really like the Versys youth bag. It’s a great bag that has a lot of versatility and lets kidspractice a wide range of martial arts techniques. If you don’t mind spending a bit more on a good punching bag for kids then we definitely recommend you check it out.
