Thread: My own crappy bagwork thread

It keeps stalling out for me after a few seconds. The part I saw looked pretty good except for the elbows. Maybe you have a different intent but I've never seen anyone land an elbow from that far out.

I guess I'll take this opportunity to ask how much point there is in throwing an elbow while doing bagwork, most elbows I see are throw from the clinch so how much point is there throwing it fro striking distance?

The spiking elbow is more of a FMA type thing, and is used as a cover to enter and do damage in the process. Its the same idea behind the crazy monkey/tool destruction/SPEAR type stuff where a wide hook or straight can be countered by covering and moving in. I can't really land them against people that are good, but it works against people that are really open, or charging in mindlessy like bad guys in a Stephen Segal movie. Although it lacks finess, another way I've used it is against someone intent on clinching and throwing knees. If I am in their necktie, I get one hand around their head on the inside, then spike the chest with the other before reaching around the head to secure my necktie.

Looks good to me.
Working the bag has nothing to do with guarding, IMO.

I can't watch the first clip fully.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Whatever, dude. Perhaps I'm just tired of people saying the generic "your hands are down" line.
Everyone needs to work on keeping their hands up, perhaps we just need a sticky that says: Your hands are down, KEEP EM UP!

Some people don't realize how much their hands are down unless it's pointed out to them. I thought I kept my hands up pretty damn good, until Master Chai hit me a few times while holding pads for me last weekend."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

I can't see that "spiking elbow" doing anything for me. Just never seen it done effectively anyplace accept on a bag I guess. I dig the fact that you throw them in there though. Lots of guys I work with completely forget they have elbows, even kicks in some cases.Amateur MMA record: 8-3-1
