    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    A couple questions about makeshift gear

    I *think* this goes here, but if it doesn't, feel free to move it to the newbie area. Forgive me in advance because I may not know the actual term for the gear I'm asking questions about.

    Anyways, I've been thinking about setting up a sort of ropes course on my balcony so that I can practice weaving, but I was not sure exactly how I should go about setting up said course. I would envision that the rope has to be at chin/shoulder level to simulate me weaving under people's attempts to punch me in the chin, but I am unsure. Also, does the thickness of the rope matter?

    Next, I've read a topic on bullshido earlier about someone using a belt hanging off the ceiling to practice precision punching. Someone suggested to make a makeshift version of a special bag designed for this instead. It looks something like this...

    Ceiling

    |
    ( ) <--- hittable part
    |
    |
    |
    |
    floor

    I remember there were recommendations on how to make a makeshift version of this bag, but I cannot find the topic that would tell me how to do it.

    Again, sorry if the way I've asked my questions is kind of confusing! Thank you for your help in advance.

    The rope size is of utmost importance. The thicker the better. MAke sure it looks like this.

    Hrm, I guess my diagram wasn't quite good enough. Fortunately, I've found an actual picture.

    I don't see the need to go to the trouble of making your own double end bag, particularly since it'd be difficult to make one yourself that doesn't suck. Double end bags are not particularly expensive. Also, make sure you get some proper coaching on how to use the bag so you're not just standing in place bouncing the bag off your fists like a dope (looks at Sifu Rudy).

    This video isn't as bad as I remember, but you seriously should consider having a boxing coach teach you how to use that thing.

    Wow, ignorance and arrogance all rolled into one post. Good job.

    Let me tell you a story about that video. It was shot IN A BOXING GYM. The only things the SEVERAL BOXING COACHES would say is "great timing , Rudy." Or " How are you hitting that so many times?"

    AFAIC, Hitting it a couple of times and letting it go while you bob and weave on a bag that is never going to hit you, just so it slows down enough for you to start up again, is a waste of time. You may have a different take on using that bag. Thats your preference. BUT, Its not a law that it has to be used YOUR WAY. I don't need a boxing coach to teach me something I don't believe in.

    Better yet, lets see YOUR video.

    You don't move around the bag at all, you're totally static and don't treat the bag like a real living dangerous opponent... you treat it like a paddle ball. A big part of using bags like this is moving strategically and working with it like it is actually dangerous, not just how many times in a row you can hit the thing before missing.

    If your boxing coach (and I mean you as in anyone, not you specifically) has nothing to say to you but how good you're doing, that means they're not particularly interested in coaching or helping you and you need to find yourself a new coach. Of course, if you think you're this supreme bad ass that needs no correction, you have no hope of ever getting any better no matter how much you train. I know the things I do aren't perfect, not even close, and that's why I have coaches on my ass barking at every little thing I do wrong. It's how you get better.
