Hello and welcome.

Had a quick look. Good energy but a couple of things:

i) Your hands drop too much after punching.

ii) You more or less stayed in the same spot while working on the bag. I would try and get use to moving round the bag, working on punching and moving. Rolling stone gathers no bruises. It's like drving in a one way lane. You get use to going in one direction. However, what happens when you go on to a two way lane, and you have traffic coming right at you? In other words, when you are sparring someone is going to be hitting you back. You have to work on body movement as well as punching.

Standing still and duking it out with someone to wait and see who the last man standing is is never a good strategy. Even if you come out better, you may still have taken a lot of needless punishment. You fight how you train, so try and move around the bag more. Even if you are doing it for a workout, getting your whole body moving will make the workout that bit more demanding.

There's some good energy there though, keep going! If I may ask, what are you training? Boxing? What are you training for? Fitness? Competition?

No sweat if you don't want to answer, just curious!

Hey stryker, thanks for putting up the vid. Mostly, you look pretty sharp. Good speed and good flow with the strikes. I would echo PW's comment about moving around the bag more, and I would add to that try to switch sides every now and then. You kept your left side forward the whole time. Get used to being able to jab off both sides. Maybe work some elbows in, too. This link has some stuff I did, for comparison:

Keep up the good work!

I am primarily an Ed Parker American kenpo (EPAK for short) stylist. I have also done some formal work in Jeet Kune Do, and Brazilian Jujitsu, with some informal Wing Chun, Aikido, and Tae Kwon Do.
