"The Art of the Bag... A Speed Bag Story" was envisioned, produced and directed by
Joe Saba, who started out a few years ago as a guy mesmerized by the sound and 
fury of the speed bag, and through many hours under the board became a bagger
of master level skills, while beautifully capturing the heart and soul of the bag
and a small but growing cadre of speed bag fanatics who gather yearly to 
share their skills and learn from each other. Joe spent over two years 
and many thousands of his own dollars producing this film for the
soul purpose of honoring the Speed Bag and those that use it. 
Thanks JOE!
