I "made" my own chi-ishi after reading this article (read: applied puppy dog eyes for free labour and help ) and they work brilliantly. I used a pair of 2.5lr tins for my one handed ones and they both weigh a little over 5kg/11lb. I did the same again with a much larger tub (not sure exactly) for a two handed one and it weighs about 24kg/52lb and is frankly evil to work with.

Mucho obligato to the OP for this

Im wondering if that has some serious risks involved seeing that the rists are being used to bear so much weight?

As long as you're not reckless with it, then you should be absolutely fine. If your wrists are on the weak side to begin with it can be difficult to use them, but common sense would indicate you take care to begin with and then work your way up gradually.

Personally though I've found my wrists are a lot stronger for doing it - bearing in mind before I started using chi-shi consistently, the bones in my wrists were prone to being pushed and pulled out of alignment regularly. Now I don't have any problems.

You can use single head to training many throwing techniques.

chi shi is very important part of your martial arts training specially used in karate. It gives very impressive results.
