    I was always taught you shouldn't move your head at all except for when you slip. The moving your head when you punch or kick thing has always been something only n00bs do.

    Apparently http://www.boxrec.com/boxer_display.php?boxer_id=022920

    so you're taught to turn your head with your body as you punch and kick? Seems pretty silly to me.

    Or the other one we train under fairly regularly

    http://www.theultimateboxer.com/author.html

    Or the fact that we spar on a weekly basis with three top ranked amateur boxers.

    I'd like to think at least some of them have teh real b0xing

    no, of course you dont move your head on its own. that would be dumb. youd look like some kind of weird chicken dance fighter. i mean moving your body so that your head moves as well. a moving target is generally harder to hit than one staying still

    well yeah, I misworded what I meant to say. I was really just referring to turning your head as you punch and kick, which is a stupid noob thing that people do. That other guy seemed to be advocating this.

    When I say "keep it still" I actually meant, keeping your head facing your opponent at all times. I try to keep my head moving at all times when I spar.

    Gotta love the ol' "Flinchy Punch Slap"

    How is your breathing when you throw your techniques? Do you ever find yourself holding your breath, then "whooshing" after you've made contact?

    Give this a shot. Get one of those "Lo Pro" or "Brain Pad" double mouth pieces and wear it while you do bag work.

    I used to have issues with my ears and my jaw hurting like crazy during/after bagwork and sparring, and I found out that I had TMJ (a common jaw disorder). Wearing a GOOD mouthpiece while working the bag relieved all my issues AND further conditioned me to breathing with it in.

    Just a thought.
