    Yeah, I figure the uppercut bag is better for uppercuts than the tear drop bag. The tear drop bags are nice for shovel hooks and knees though, IMO.

    you could be in a posture that looks like your perpetually slipping, i guess. But that certainly isn't an orthodox (<- lulz) boxing stance.

    Don't you guys wish you had a cult of personality like we do at DHS so this could be shipped to Guantanamo to the ecstatic cries of glee from a throng of fervent, wild-eyed supporters?

    Actually, people are nice and offer advice (like KidS) and are about as patient as humanly possible.
    And there's no severe prickism factor here. I like it here.

    Oh, so you think that just perhaps this is a dumb question? Like "How od arm bar?" or something? Well, that's fine for older more experience martail artists and key board warriors. But how about just helping out the guy? Is that too much to ask? Here, I'll give you an example:

    Dear questioner, I see by your profile that your primary art is Judo. As long as you stick with Judo you will not train uppercuts. I would try a kickboxing school or mma school or any decent standup training school.

    *Hint* Uppercuts have a lot to do with the knees and hips.

It somehow seems unnatural to me. Is it even a useful punch, or has hollywood brainwashed me?
    perhaps you are not twisting/ torqing your body into it? you may be too square or rigid while trying to land a heavy hit at the expense of technique

    By go to work, he means throw your body hooks.
    Yes I know you asked for uppercuts, but this drill is all about the motion and leg strength, which will serve you well.
