View Full Version : critique my bagwork

7/24/2013 2:36am,

hopefully finally getting back to fighting soon, so thought i would upload a vid for members of bullshido to critique/**** on.

couple of things-

1. yes im aware of my left roundhouse kick. my left hip is absofucked from an earlier life of x-country running. it is what it is.

2. this is not my music, the gangster in the puff jacket is my coach and it is his muzak.

Main observation: you are much better than me.

If we're nit-picking, maybe wouldn't kill you to exit on an angle after a combination from time to time? Seems like you skip straight back a lot.

Some good techniques there,

Only minor stuff and it may be the angle of the film but it looks like you skip to perform a lead low kick, when I used to fight I always personally found it better to just drop in to the lead low kick as opposed to skip, your way isn't wrong or anything but I just found it was harder for the opponent to block as it was a bit quicker without the skip. The only time I would usually vary it was if I used a front kick with the rear leg in which case I would use a springing low kick.

Also hands look like they are dropping sometimes during combinations a little bit.

Hey, nice video. Are you a south-paw or you changed your stance because of your left leg?
Anyways, nice drill. It's 2 minutes with all techniques and movement, right? How many reps you do per session?

i usually do 10x2 minute rounds per morning. nice way to wake up. im southpaw cos the good lord hates me and decided i was destined to rot in hell, or thats what my coaches tell me.

my hands do look kinda low. i think i have a bad habit of dropping my left slightly when i move out. ill add it on to cutting an angle afterwards. i also seem to punch down at a fair angle, but i do spend a lot of time fighting midgets.

You have good footwork and as we say in Hung ga, your ging is alive and explosive (faht ging)

One question, why do your punches seem...low? If I had been the bag I don't think any of them would have gone above my shoulder line.

I was a south paw until I joined my previous muay Thai classes and they trained orthodox, so from then on I fight that way, strange considering my power comes from the lead leg and arm.
