Do you think this structure will be able to support a 100kg+ (220lbs+) heavy bag? Answered

Picture of

I want to hang a 180cm (6ft) 100kg+ heavy bag from this structure in my backyard for Muay Thai (kickboxing). 
It's made of hollow steel beams which are set in concrete and welding together at the center. 
I know that it can support the weight (My brother and I used a ladder to hang off the center beam, together we're 130kg+) but I'm unsure of whether movement from the bag will be an issue. Thoughts?

Just try it. worst case scenario it will fall on you :). However hang it by slowingly letting the bag. If it holds try a few light punches and go upgrading to bigger ones. Make sure you check the frame for any breaks, cracks (especially in the welds, as they are not as strong) or bends between the first punches. If you notice any stop immediatly and remove the bag carefully. If it holds still check it regurlarly.

Weight of the bag ain't the problem but you can give enough velocity to bag to damage the poles or take it out from concrete .
But it is impossible for a human, so just give it a try.it won't do much damage,or can it?

Impossible to tell just by looking.

But my opinion, based on your information, is yes it will support the weight
