    Ah that, true. The last couple of times I've convinced my training partners to do a corner drill with me, where I'll stand against a wall, guard up, and just let myself get hit all the time, and just try to defend and maybe once in a while counter a bit.

    That's the way! Sounds like you know what you need to get out of your training. Hope you find a new space that can help you with that.

    Solid idea. I was in your shoes a few years ago, and it's always rough when you have an idea of what might help you improve, but nobody's willing or capable of doing it. Sounds like you have a good idea of what to look for.

    What you want to do there is block or try to make other the guy miss. Also, you should work on counterpunching and escaping. You should get hit some, but it shouldn't be all the time. And it certainly shouldn't be full power, since this is just practice.

    Check out some James Toney or Chris Byrd fights to see examples of excellent defense and counterpunching.

    Yeah, don't 'practice' getting hit. Its one thing to not be afraid of it but there is no reason for you to get used to getting hit. When you do any drill where you are just defending, always slip, weave, block, angle away. alllways!!

    Yeah, I'm sorry I wasn't clear, that's exactly what I'm doing.

    When retreating, you shouldn’t break your form, which is leaning slightly forward, don’t lean backwards that is a bad habit, you can’t attack from that position and it puts you in a vulnerable position.
    I understand that you do MT, and maybe some of your mistakes are due to that fact, like keeping your hands low, and the queer angel your left hand blocks.
    You don’t counter, you don’t faint, and when you attack the body (rarely) you are too high and open especially when you lead with the left. Your jabs aren’t crisp (even when going light you can have some “crisp”), when you punch, your chin is too high (could be the head gear). Your legs are too straight, you have no spring in them. If that is how you look after two years (albeit I don’t know the frequency) you need a better coach and better sparring partners, your partner there looked the part with his physique, shiny pants and tight guard for about two second’s.
    Most of the stuff I and others pointed out will go away if you start drilling and sparring with good partners and a good coach.
    There are drills that focus on a better guard and position, if you are interested I will elaborate.

    Thanks for your reply and sure, go ahead.

    By the way, I'd partly attribute the laziness of my legs a bit to this being the end of the two hours of training and two rounds of sparring before this one. Yeah, I know. Excuses, excuses.

    One thing that TMA has taught me well is being able to keep a solid, low stance.

    When you go on jogs, try to do 0.5 miles on your toes (balls of your feet) every jog. You'll quickly build up the necessary muscles to keep your heels off the ground.
