    this is the one me and my sparing buds practice. It helps you work on your defense game and practice looking at your op. Main Key is to build confidence in your defense game and to destroy fear in the process so you can lead with your body and not your fist when you fight. Your not gonna Die from a head shot wile sparing. Just convince your mind and body of that though practice.

    I gave this it's own thread. I think it's a good drill. We do this one too.

    I do two versions of this exact drill:
    1) The one where you're in a corner. It's called the "Corner Man" obviously.

    2) A variant called toe-to-toe where you stand in an open space with you and your partner standing almost toe-to-toe (You line the tip of your lead leg toe with the line between jigsaw mats or whatever. You alternate being the aggressor or the defender for one minute rounds with no break, wearing 16Oz gloves and start slow, increasing the speed each round. Once the first round begins, you aren't allowed to move your lead foot from it's position.

    4 x 1 minute rounds each = 8 minutes of consistent effort. Broken down as follows:

    1st Minute: You attack at a slow pace, maximum of three hits per combo.
    2nd Minute: Defend.
    3rd Minute: You attack at a slightly faster pace, maximum of four hits per combo.
    4th Minute: Defend.
    5th Minute: You attack with a fair turn of speed - no limit to the number of strikes per combo
    6th Minute: Defend. If you see an opening you counter.
    7th Minute: You "punch out" for 60 seconds. Don't stop swinging.
    8th Minute: Defend. If you see an opening you counter.

    By the end, you feel pretty worn. Personally I find it harder to go first, because after the punch out round, the last thing you feel like doing is covering for a round. You take turns with this one, so if you went first the last time, you go second the next. I do this drill twice per session, about one session out of four.

    The first drill really helped me learn to see while covering, as I used to find my hands would totally obscure my vision and I'd have some sort of panic response that left me wide open to a beating.

    The second helped in the same area, but it also helped me reduce my back-pedaling, which was something I used to do far too much.

    This is a great drill. I've done it light like in the video and almost 80% with gloves.

    I do this drill all the time. Very very useful. Builds defense better than most, and the real, nasty kind of defense where footwork and distance aren't involved. Perfect for elminating flinch responses and keeping those gloves tight.

    Do it with light counterpunching motion to really get your money's worth.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    Would I expect to find this drill used in most good striking schools?
    It looks v effective and yet so obvious. I did 3 yrs of TKD but still got my ass kicked mainly because when I covered up i wasn't looking out from behind my guard. This sure would have helped.

    This is one of my fave drills, and one im always keen to do when helping people train. We didnt have a boxing corner so the defender would just stand with his back to the wall.
