    training balance

    Hello fellow bullshido tovarish,I have question to ask.

    Now reading this forum I get it, you don't believe in magic and concept of grasping things with no physical training. This is very understand. However answer me this if you know fellow drugies, what excersises at home one can do to train balance? I'm talking kung fu one leg in the air next to head, one bend in the knee on a stick 10 meters from ground. Basically interested in excersises to train distribution of weight, balance when changing poses, most uncomfortable too, while maininging confident stance.

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    I've also been wondering about this. I'm guessing that exercises involving those exercise balls will also help considerably, right? (forgive my newbieness).

    Do one-footed bagwork and switch feet every round.

    myrmecophilous - good idea, you mean like stand on medicine ball, dangerous, but sounds like could work the skill very good... couldn't do that at home though

    I think this is the one thing that kung fu stance training may help with. But at the same time, you want to have balance in motion. I'd go to a boxing gym and have them coach you on it.

    Whatever the hell it is your trying to accomplish, work on that.

    Standing on a swiss ball will not improve your triple lutz.

    my friend, since we are on the boxing subject, how do typical practices go? Is there a lot of head hitting, I just don't know if it's worth it for me, I work with my head if you know what I mean.

    thanx,

    alex
