    Anyways, sounds like you could ask your coach for some extra training in the missing areas sometime.
    Sorry, I forgot that I don't live on Streets of Rage Blvd. in Metro City. In my area, we don't have average brawls, just boss battles, and with those guys, the gun and knife doesn't deplete their whole health meter in one blow, so you know how it is =P

    I'm a puncher/leg kicker predominantly. I just love blasting away with the punches so much that opponents don't see that chopping leg kick coming. Punching well just sets up a lot of other techniques, and covers entries very nicely.

    I'd just do some straight up boxing only for some of your training session. If you allow for everything, you'll just fall back on your strengths, and will never work on your weaknesses. Just force yourself to do it. Then, once you can hang with an opponent while just boxing, open it back up to allow other techniques.

    Oh, and work your heavybag at least 3 times a week, with your hands only. It'll really smooth out your combos, improve your power, and help your handspeed.

    Yes, I belive that has to do with the fact that your hands are held higher intially looking through your guard and a less wide more square stance.

    How the **** is it harder to clinch without gloves?
    through personal experience, ( this is talking about the Muay Thai Clinch meaning you only grab the upper part of your opponent) when some one is throwing a fury of punches and hooks parrying/blocking with 16 oz helps alot. Plus thier hands requires less space to puncture into shield, trapping thier arm is a lot easier also

    Getting into the Clinch is harder without gloves but getting out of it is easier because you requrie less space to swim through and capture the inside of the opponents arms. With gloves you have to rely more on elbow pulling to make the space.

    I do need more time with my instructor for punching skills, I have to learn to use punching more frequently. I do however use punching, but only to set up low/body kicks. Body/low kicks/clinch are my primary weapons even though I understand punching skills are essential. They work for me during sparing and even works againts taller opponents. Discard what isn't useful right?

    I do mean getting INTO the clinch, after that, clinching is much harder with gloves. IMO

    But my opinion is not as valuable as yours. I still have a **** load to learn, its just seems easier to me to get into the clinch with gloves as of now.
