What is Myachi? Myachi Hand Sacks combines the fluid hand motions of martial arts with the old school fun of hacky sack. Simple enough for grade-schoolers to get the hang of within minutes, the Myachi will also challenge the most skilled varsity athletes.
Myachi is dedicated to instilling the virtues that lie at its core into the next generation of Myachi Maniax: Discipline, Respect, Confidence, Patience, and Passion. By focusing on these virtues in a way that is fun, healthy and active, we hope that the values and lessons of Myachi can help build stronger communities and individuals…and one’s with sick reflexes and hand-eye coordination at that!
I received 2 Myachi Hand Sacks from Series 4.4, Trail Blazer and Rawhide. I had never heard of them before, I grew up with the hacky sack, where you would kick a bean bag around but you couldn’t let it touch the ground. Well, this is the same premise. The Myachi is a small rectangular bag approximately 1.5” by 3.5” that players use to perform a variety of tricks using every part of the body except the palm of the hand. Myachi can be played alone or in groups. There are a number of different games played with the Myachi, but it is most commonly used for freestyle play. As soon as I showed the kids, they knew exactly what they were and how to play!
