Thread: "sparring" clip.
1/04/2006 10:58am, #1
Technically not really full on sparring. I'll explain why later. At the very minimum I guess I need to explain that this is the guy I made one of the two kicking drill clips with last week and he showed up today with his left arm and both legs all bruised up so we decided not to do any kicking.
There's more but it's more fun for me to see people rip into things first and let me either either explain or admit I was sloppy only after thinking it over for a bit.
This is really more of a drill than true sparring and there is a secret here that I am kind of proud of.
[edited] becaues that didn't come out right. Seriously though, post more clips guys. Or at least pics or something[/edited]

If you don´t want people to comment on your clips, why posting them in a public forum?
So far, most people have been respectful, reasonable and willing to seriously debate and analyze, than mere ****-talkers, and that´s too much considering we´re on bullshido and you do a CMA.
And yes, I know that most probably that comment was directed to a certain poster, but this needed saying anyway.
-You crossed your legs a couple of times, leaving you vulnerable to get unbalanced if you get attacked in that moment.
-You almost gave your back to the opponent a couple of times, that´s a no-no.
-Your partner is a noob, he shouldn´t raise his back foot when throwing the right cross.
-You seem to cover a big distance with your steps, economizing energy that way, maybe.

Not to be dense, but I couldn't figure out how to download the clip with Firefox after the wait time was over. Did I miss something?

You do seem to have a few bad habits Omar. You turn your head when you cover up and you show your back a lot, it's not a good idea to stop looking at the guy you're fighting (even if he isn't very good).
You scored a nice jab at about 30 seconds in though, it's a shame your footwork put you into a position where you couldn't follow it up.

Thanks for having the balls to post so many videos of yourself.
You spar like me, in that your stance and posture seem exceptionally defensive and non-aggressive. You had very little forward action except for that quick jab...but I'm inclined to think that you weren't really sparring...but working on your defense.
With that in mind, you have exceptional fluidity and your relaxation is very noticeable. In fact, while your opponent was tense and "jiggy", you looked like you were walking through the park. You covered your targets well, and you had quick evasive movements.
While your opponent was obviously not striking with the intention to hurt, his strikes basically seemed to slide off of you.
Keep the vids going.

all the foot-crossing makes me nervous, is that a stylistic thing?
You definately make your man chase you and reach, that will wear your opponent down quickly. If I had better wind I'd do it more myself.
I agree with the previous poster that when you button up you tend to look down or away from your opponent, that makes me nervous as well.
Do you keep your punch output low to encourage the opponent to wind himself, or are you just a cautious fighter? Is this a style thing as well?
You are very loose and fluid. I'd love to see you put that to work with more jabs. I can see you frustrating oppnents all day long with that.
Good stuff!And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

well i know its not sparring so i wont tell you how unimpressed i am. but, as its a drill, let me say that along with the above comments 2 things bother me:
1) walking on your heels. is this part of your style? man this is worrisome, need i explain why? what is your reasoning for this?
2) straight leggedness. this coincides with the heel walking. once again, i cant think of a reason to do this, but i can think of numerous reasons not to. so enlighten me as to why you do this
