UNITED STATES PATENT ori-ien GEORGE B. THOMPSON, or RioHMoNn HILL, NEW YORK. y

FIGHTING BAG.

Application led February 9, 1927, Serial No. 166,871.

My invention relates primarily to punching bags, and of devices in connect-ion therewith, of an anchor suspended between the support and the bag which permitsthe I same to be punched, no matter how .vigorously, but without noise, while addition thereto it provides exercise for one vor more ,l

boxers at the saine time.

The invention consists ot' a smalll anchor. Asshown, it is round and about the size of a baseball, being solid and provided. with means for suspending the same between .the support and the bag, whereby it will control the movements ot the bag. ,y

Another object of my invention is tosuspend the punching bag and cause the same,

to be even more lively than at present so as to cause the boxer to think quick as well' as to teach hiinvto dodge and sidefstep. It'

will also train his eye, cause him to judge distance as well as give him active toot work, all otV which tends to build up the muscles.

My invention further consists in certain new and novel mea-ns for anchoring punching bag in mid air which will add materially to the enjoyment ot the family, Yas all rmay exercise therewith withoutv that noise that isv usual bythe striking of the `ball againstthe striking board or ripperl support.

Prior toy my invention punching bag apparatusof the type commonly used have employed a striking board from the center of wliichthe bag was suspended,.the boxer standing within striking distance and by hittingV the bag a Iblow cause it to strike against the board, the striking causing not! only a noise but alsov a vibration, especially if it were setup in the apartment, which causes the same to be very` objectionable, which my present invention, among other things, is designed t-o prevent. In other punchingibags there is also great lack ot' efficiency due to the tact that the bag islimited in its operation, preventing the boxer from securing the greatest amplitude of action thathe would or should from such apparatus. This ditiiculty my invention aims to overcome in the manner that will be more clearly understood from the following disclosure of a selected embodiment of my invention. These and other objects and features of the invention will be hereinafter described and pointed out, particularly in the appended claims.

avv

My invention` as at `present preferred will be more clearly understood `by reference to the drawing which illustrates merely examples oip means for putting my invention into practice and wherein Fig. l isa view of a punching bag-suspended by a yielding elastic rope having two anchors thereon, and showing in dotted lines, some of the' various positions the bag and anchors assume; i i

Fig. 2 is a side view of one form of anchor, showing eye screws for securing the elastic rope to;

Fig. 3 is a vertical vsectional view of a modified anchor showing the saine vwith a bore and a rope clamping means contained therein; v

Fig. 4 is another modification; with the anchor in two halvesand a clamping means operatable on the assembling ofthe halves;-

Fig. 5 isa detail elevation of the lower part of Fig. 3 showing meansfor lockingl the elastic rope and holding the same `secure; f y v Fig. 6 is another modification, and Fig. 7 shows a performer exercising wit-h va punching bag having a single anchor.

`My' invention maybe set up' for use in f bag I prefer to secure tothe elastic sup-,- e

porting rope or cord. Again it will understood that a ball or bag may be filledy with some heavy substance so as to afford more resistance` to the blows, at the same time requiring more strength on the `part`V of the boxer'.

Referring to Figure l, a punching bag 8 is suspended by an elastic ropev9 having, as shown, between the supporting means and the bag, two anchors, 10 and 11, eachV vanchor having screw eyes 12, 13. The lower one, 10, controlsthe movement of the bag 8, and the anchor 11 controls the movement ot the anchor l0. By providing two anchors the punching bag is caused to be very active, causing ther boxer to be on the alert to catch it on its advancing or retreating movement. The boxer gets the active `exercise with a bag so suspended, as he `will use every movement used in shadow boxing, yet have the added advantage of the ball swung at every angle, and getting in blows that otherwise he would not practice.

As shown in said ligure the elastic cords 9 are applied to the eyes 12 and 13 on said anchors by snap hooks 14., so that the punche ing bag outfit may be set up `and taken down Without-trouble. Instead of elasticV cords or ropes, as above referredto, they may consist of suitable springs which would in every way provide the necessary elasticity to the bag. Y By providing a practice bag as shown, the boxer may get the best exercise by reasonof thelively and rapid manner he will have to step around'to place blows on the bag, be they straight jabs, upper cuts or others, at the same time as has been noted, bythe means shown the noise is reduced to a minimum by reason of having no kind of supporting bracket'or board to receive theL coneussions of the bag.

It may be advantageous and desirable that the elastic cord be in one piece, and to move the anchor or anchors, as may be desired, to

the most desirable place thereon. As shown in Fig.`3 the anchor is provided with a central bore 15, having a tapered portion 16 and .an enlarged bore 17 at its `lower end. A

sleeve 18 is adapted to fit into the lower bore 17, while the sleeve at its upper end is adapted .to house a twopart clamp 19, which when the sleeve is pushed upwardly causes the clamping member'19 to pinch the elastic cord and hold the same tightly. The anchor 10 has a locking slot 20, while the sleeve has a pin 21, which its within said slot andis caused to lock and hold the anchor in any desired position.

With the punching bag suspended as shown,th`e boxer may acquireV any styleof` blows, and he has to keep a keen eye on Vthe bag to get the best results from his 25, terminating in a straightlbore 26, while the lower member 23 has a straight bore 27 through the same, while on itsupper part is provided clamps 28, which are Aormed by turning a cone, t en splitting the same with saw cuts 90 degrees toifeach other g thuslwhen lthis anchor is provided with alongitudinal bore 30, its lower part having an enlarged threaded opening 31, which terminates in bevel or cone opening 32. The clamp herein shown comprises a threadednut 33,l and having a vcone head 34, which as described inv y connection with Fig. 4, said cone may be saw cut 90de rees each way so-as to afford a positive c amp for the Velastic rope or cord that may be used. -i

Fig. 7 shows the movements of the bag when given ahard blow. The anchor 10 in this case is for small confined quarters, ,or for use of amateurs for the exercise that may be secured from this ap aratus.

VIn accordance with t e provisions of the patentst-atutes, I-have herein described the principal form of my invention which-I now consider Ato represent the best `embodiment thereof, but I desire `to have it understood that the various formofanchors are only illustrative and that Vthe invention may be carried out in other ways than those shown `or described, but all are intended to come within the scope ofthe claims. While-the forms,'they may be changed or altered to meet the particular requirement without interfering in any way with the general results for which the anchors were designed;

*What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: Y

design of the anchors are `Shown in variousV 1. An exercising apparatus comprising aV member'adapted to be struck, mea-ns for suspending the` member from an overhead support to permitfree swingingmovement of said member when it is struck, and weighted means `carried by the suspending means and having a greater inertia thanthe member4 thereby to quicken the movementV of said member under the miluence of a blow.

v 2. An exercising apparatus comprlsing a `member adapted to be struck, flexible means for suspending the member from an overhead support to permit reeswinging move- `ment of said member when it is struck, and weighted means carried by -the suspending.

from an overhead support to permit :tree 13 bag adapted to be struck, inherently flexible and resilient means for suspending thevbagv from an overhead support to permit free swinging movement of said membery when it is struck, said suspending means being attached to thev bag at one of its ends and to the support at its other end, and weighted means carried by said suspending means and located between its ends and having a great! er inertia than the member thereby to quickv en the movement of said member under the influence of a. blow.

5. An exercising apparatus comprising a bag adapted to be struck, means for suspending the bag from an overhead support to permit free swinging movement of said bag 6. An exercising apparatus comprising ay bag adapted to be struck, means for suspending the bag from an overhead support to permit free swinging movement of said bag when it is struck, said means being flexible, and plurality of weighted members carried in spaced relationship to each other on the suspending means, and each having 'agreater inertia than the bag, and working against each other and the bag underr the influence of a blow on the bag to quicken the move-V ments of the bag.
