If you're solo and have some empty space, take your handwraps and find a location where you can tie them off on both ends. Then, tie them off on both ends and velcro them together in the middle, trying to keep the wraps even just below shoulder level. It'll sag in the middle, but work with it. You can tie off whatever you want for this drill so long as you can see it.
As a tip, you actually don't want to completely clear the wraps, you want the bottom of your head to lightly skim the top of the rope when rope. The tigher you are when weaving or slipping, the less distance you have to travel to counterpunch. If you drop too low, you won't be able to land a counterpunch before the person defends.
thanks amigo, I really like that drill. My head motion has been getting a little better since I made the first post and I'm a lil looser in the flow. Definitely going to incorporate the tied off line in my shadowboxing.
Also thinking of investing in a double end bag. Was originally aiming for one of those training bags with human shape, but I think a double end might be more beneficial in terms of my biggest weakness.
hehe, nah we spar. I haven't sparred 'full' contact yet, and to be honest my head gets whipped back enough in 50-70% contact, so I don't think I'm loosing out by not goin all out.
Likewise, the hands. You take krav maga, so I hope nobody is waving little blue and red flags everytime you touch each other. Don't hang out all day eating them, but punches thrown with just the arms aren't worth worrying about overly.
Yeah, watching the torso without focusing intently on any particular point seems to work the best so far. I've also felt that I feel more comfortable once we incorporate kicks into the mix, probably has something to do with the distance.
A real punch, kick, elbow or knee, hell even a good head butt, and definately a shoot is going have some torso behind it. So watch the torso for a better signal to noise ratio.
