Ahem, to speed up jabs do "perfect" form in mirror 30 reps three times a day. Only go as fast as you can with good form. With this method it took me maybe three months to get a killer jab down.
What really surprises me is that many people never really try to perfect techniques for their skill set. I spent a lot of time on three or four kicks and about as many strikes and that's been my bread and butter. Kaju and KK both drilled lots of jabs and that early training has nailed me many a face (or jab - left front kick - overhand right etc etc). Similarly KK used sweep/roundhouse to the front leg and often I've sparred with people who don't know these techniques so they tend to be candy - to say nothing of untrained people, and pretty much there isn't much to say because they are laying there going wtf?
I was trained to explode on the command and even as the old fart in line drills I'm done with short combos before any of the other bbs in class (long combos they pass me by 'cause I am actually slower, I just get off on the gun quickly, so to speak). If you combine drilling speed watching yourself doing 'bursting out' with the strikes it should help. I don't know how you train, but the MT I saw had line drills in air similar to all the other arts' line drills. Some people go through the motions while others have a pool of sweat on the floor around them in a few minutes - be the guy with sweat dripping off your gi if you really want to be fast.
Some boxing coaches use the slap hand drill where you have both hands up and opponents are on your's and you turn your hand over to hit them and if you miss it's their turn - this is a game that might help speed reflexes and if that's not clear I can go on and on...

For Gunter and Fug, pretty sure i got this book because of a post on bullshido. Awesome read and really regretting loaning it to a gym mate two years back (never saw it again):

Agreed. Some of the things he talks about in the book, like the thumb slip to the eye are great for street level and not so much for ring. More of the tricks can be used for the cage as peoplesoft stated though better than beginner boxing skills are need to pull some of them off. As a side note whatever you do do not buy his other book. Kill as Catch can wrestling.

If I could have, I would have returned it. It was worthless to me.

If anyone wants to buy me a 1st edition autographed copy of Jack Dempsey's Championship Fighting, that would take care of one thing on my wishlist.Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

and yes I can admit that, just not happy with the way you said it. I would probably really enjoy that book so it might be added to the wish list even though its apparently over my head.
I have a fight at the end of January :boxing: . Its muay thai rules minus elbows, and knees to the head.
I will work in the mirror a lot in the next few weeks. What should I be focusing on when I'm working the bags? We have a 100 lb thai heavy bag, a soccer ball sized double ender, a standard speed bad, and a tear drop shaped bag.

Yeah i have a habit of saying things in the meanest way possible ;), its a gift. If you have a fight in (late?) january you are best working the same 2-4 hit combos with your trainer and doing as much light sparring as you can, all the prep work goes to **** when you get in there for the first time anyway. How long have you been training for?
