Loki -


As Mr V is quite anal about aliveness for some reason (as if OTHER topics don't generate heated debate.), why don't we continue the discussion here?

I will work ever harder to ensure that I don't encourage flaming debates. That way, we (us all - everyone) might be able to eventually realize that we share more common ground than we at first may realize!

Cheers!

John,

If you want to continue the discussion here then I'll start it.

One of the things I took away from the short video was the punching drills. I do a set at least once a week, but my partner doesn't move around. This week I'm going to incorperate the movement, because when he moves I have to move. From the fighting skills standpoint which I believe is the main point this is supposed to drive home, it is more realistic. From a fitness standpoint, both the puncher and the holder are moving. This is increasing the cardio portion of this drill, thus increasing stamina. I think it would be cool to work this drill off 2 or 3 people holding mitts or pads, with the 'aliveness' movement going on to work on multiple attacker skills. Do you do anything like this as well? Whatcha think about that idea?

It's not uncommon to see guys standing still - even when doing focus pad drills. Thats not realistic because your opponents aren't going to be standing still in real fights. This is just common sense and everyone can agree to this, yet what do you see when many of them are training? Standing around flat footed doing things that are completely unrealistic.

It's good to always incorporate movement. That's the way real fights are.

Doing these drills for a half an hour at a high pace is a great method of getting a cardio vascular workout - providing your heart rate is high enough for your age/level.

Any drills like that, done in that manner are going to be good. Even better would be to wear headgear and boxing gloves and actually work to hit your opponents in the head and working into the clinch and back out. Keep moving trying to keep one of your opponents between you and his partner until you can get to a pre-determined "doorway"/escape zone.

Good luck!
