I could word my question another way: does anyone train solo drills which improve footwork?

if so...I was wondering if yours and others look similar to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6y0YYBUGP0

thanks again.




They are co ordenation exercises

If you ever watched ALI doing foot work drills then he would use what he practiced as a drill in the ring particuler against liston

thanks again.

p.s. I'm not looking for fight clips to extract drills out of....I can do that myself. thought it would be an interesting thread to hear what actual isolated drills people do to improve footwork...from actual experience doing them. keep testing me andy.

For Drill #1 & #2 he is working with a skipping rope which is similar to our rope ladder drills, however the rope ladder allows so much more options for coordination and speed. Drill #3 & #4 we do something similar with slammer shield that we lay on the floor, plus we do the same things within the rope ladder drills. #5 have never done. #6 is a lot like our shuffling drills. We will do this in class as a whole and the Instructor will call out "two shuffles back". He'll pause and then yell "three shuffles forward" and add on to it like "run to the side". Then each time it gets harder and harder with more combinations with "two steps forward", "three shuffles back", "step to the side", "step to the side", "front kick, front kick, roundhouse, back kick, three shuffles back". What ends up happening is if you can't do it then you must bow out. If he sees you screw up then you must bow out. Anybody who bows out goes to the side and does 10 monkey jumps, 10 squat thrusts and 10 clappling pushups.

We will also do leap frogs over each other around the gym till finally we are sitting on our butts with our legs out. They will then have to do bunny hops over your legs, heels to the bum, one legged hops, etc. Then everybody will spread there feet and you will have to do in/outs, scissors, quicks steps, etc. So some of these we do and some we don't

I wouldnt practice footwork drills other than the the footwork /drills that were specific to the techniques being trained.So cant help you on that one.

Others might but I would only train what is specific to what I am doing.

A basic fitness drill incorperating boxing foot work.
In MMA,s etc it can go/might go from boxing/kicking etc to clinch work etc to throws take/downs to grappling/punching etc on the floor to then getting back up again.

Can be done with minimum equipment
So can be trained almost anywhere.
The reps are subject to present fitness and the amount that can be managed at this time. If its only 5 reps to start with then fine.

After a warm up stretching etc


Free standing Squats thighs to parallel 10 of ( done fairly slowly I donít believe in bouncing to much where knees are concerned)
Drop to the floor then sit ups 10 of
Turn over press ups 10 of
Then stand up
Either fast sprint 20 paces or running on the spot 20 paces
or moving forward using a basic boxing stance while shadow boxing.Subject to first having got the boxing movements correct.
Then straight to

Free standing Squats thighs to parallel 9 of
Drop to the floor then sit ups 9 of
Turn over press ups 9 of
Stand up then
Either fast sprint 20 paces or running on the spot 20 paces or use basic boxing footwork for going forward while jabbing/shadow boxing
Then straight to

Free standing Squats thighs to parallel 8 of
Drop to the floor then sit ups 8 of
Turn over press ups 8 of
Then stand up
Either fast sprint 20 paces or running on the spot 20 paces or use basic boxing footwork for going backwards while jabbing /shadow boxing

Then straight to
Free standing Squats thighs to parallel 7 of
Drop to the floor then sit ups 7 of
Turn over press ups 7 of

Then stand up
Either fast sprint 20 paces or running on the spot 20
Paces or use basic boxing foot work for going side ways while shadow boxing
Each set decreasing the reps
Etc untill the last set is one of each

All done with out a pause in between.
The reps can be decreased or increased at the starting point to 20 upwards depending on fitness level.

It's nice that you've taken the time to come up with this Andy, but isn't this the wrong place to post it? Ed is asking about footwork drills, not fitness drills.

Ed, most of the work I have done with footwork has been while playing basketball. For this we used SAQ, or ladder drills. They are very simple pieces of equipment which can be used in any number of ways. However, the footwork needed for invasion games is very different to that used for MAs, so I am not sure how readily the drills would translate.

I think personally that skipping (rope jumping in US?) and shadow sparring, as well as actual sparring, are the best ways to build footwork. They are the drills that are most sport specific.
