Technically not really full on sparring. I'll explain why later. At the very minimum I guess I need to explain that this is the guy I made one of the two kicking drill clips with last week and he showed up today with his left arm and both legs all bruised up so we decided not to do any kicking.

There's more but it's more fun for me to see people rip into things first and let me either either explain or admit I was sloppy only after thinking it over for a bit.

This is really more of a drill than true sparring and there is a secret here that I am kind of proud of.

becaues that didn't come out right. Seriously though, post more clips guys. Or at least pics or something

Still waiting.........

If you donīt want people to comment on your clips, why posting them in a public forum?

So far, most people have been respectful, reasonable and willing to seriously debate and analyze, than mere ****-talkers, and thatīs too much considering weīre on bullshido and you do a CMA.

And yes, I know that most probably that comment was directed to a certain poster, but this needed saying anyway.

On topic:

-You crossed your legs a couple of times, leaving you vulnerable to get unbalanced if you get attacked in that moment.
-You almost gave your back to the opponent a couple of times, thatīs a no-no.
-Your partner is a noob, he shouldnīt raise his back foot when throwing the right cross.
-You seem to cover a big distance with your steps, economizing energy that way, maybe.

Not to be dense, but I couldn't figure out how to download the clip with Firefox after the wait time was over. Did I miss something?

You do seem to have a few bad habits Omar. You turn your head when you cover up and you show your back a lot, it's not a good idea to stop looking at the guy you're fighting (even if he isn't very good).

You scored a nice jab at about 30 seconds in though, it's a shame your footwork put you into a position where you couldn't follow it up.

Thanks for having the balls to post so many videos of yourself.

You spar like me, in that your stance and posture seem exceptionally defensive and non-aggressive. You had very little forward action except for that quick jab...but I'm inclined to think that you weren't really sparring...but working on your defense.

With that in mind, you have exceptional fluidity and your relaxation is very noticeable. In fact, while your opponent was tense and "jiggy", you looked like you were walking through the park. You covered your targets well, and you had quick evasive movements.

While your opponent was obviously not striking with the intention to hurt, his strikes basically seemed to slide off of you.

Keep the vids going.

So far 3 people have commented on the clip, and two of them don't seem to have read and inwardly digested the two quotes from Omar's post. I'm all upset because Megaupload said 'Download limit exceeded' when I wanted to have a look and I feel I deserve a look in because I read the accompanying commentary.

all the foot-crossing makes me nervous, is that a stylistic thing?

You definately make your man chase you and reach, that will wear your opponent down quickly. If I had better wind I'd do it more myself.

I agree with the previous poster that when you button up you tend to look down or away from your opponent, that makes me nervous as well.

Do you keep your punch output low to encourage the opponent to wind himself, or are you just a cautious fighter? Is this a style thing as well?

You are very loose and fluid. I'd love to see you put that to work with more jabs. I can see you frustrating oppnents all day long with that.

Good stuff!

well i know its not sparring so i wont tell you how unimpressed i am. but, as its a drill, let me say that along with the above comments 2 things bother me:

1) walking on your heels. is this part of your style? man this is worrisome, need i explain why? what is your reasoning for this?

2) straight leggedness. this coincides with the heel walking. once again, i cant think of a reason to do this, but i can think of numerous reasons not to. so enlighten me as to why you do this

OK.

This was the game. I was going to try and only use footwork to dance around him and not punch back. He was going to play offense. I forgot about that when I threw what I think was my one jab. I don't know how to scoot past to the right like that without covering it with a jab.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Light's out,

Yes it was sort of directed at someone but I took it out anyways. I'm guessing that maybe that's why we got thrown out of the techniques sub-forum? *groan* All the more reason for more people to throw stuff up there. Bumming me out a bit how little discussion is happening up there. Anyways:

-You crossed your legs a couple of times, leaving you vulnerable to get unbalanced if you get attacked in that moment.

Only a couple? By boxing standards I thought I was doing it constantly. What's the difference? You have some specific moments in mind?

-You almost gave your back to the opponent a couple of times, thatīs a no-no.

Only once that I noticed. It was so embarrasing I almost edited it out. . . but that just wouldn't be right now.

-Your partner is a noob, he shouldnīt raise his back foot when throwing the right cross.

Good call. I didn't notice. I'll watch for that next time.

-You seem to cover a big distance with your steps, economizing energy that way, maybe.

Actually he was doing his best but he's having a hard time pinning me down. He "landed" one really solid cross but I can't see it on the clip for some reason. In quotes because I blocked it with my rear hand but I mean, unlike the rest where I kind of rotate and shrug off his stuff, it actually hit something...even if it was my hand. It was nice and solid and aimed right at my head. Damn. I just reviewed the clip and I still can't find where it was.

We stopped when we did because he just plain gassed himself.

Scrapper,

all the foot-crossing makes me nervous, is that a stylistic thing?

Yes. And I am not trying to sell it on anyone. It was maybe doing even more than usual because I partly made this clip in response to some talk about how non-mobile that was supposed to make me and I was saying that it makes it easier to "run around".

You definately make your man chase you and reach, that will wear your opponent down quickly. If I had better wind I'd do it more myself.

I don't have great wind I just enjoy that kind of sparring and I as you now know, I was trying to get him to really go for it more and had meant not to punch back at all but only play defense.

I agree with the previous poster that when you button up you tend to look down or away from your opponent, that makes me nervous as well.

I was noticing that too. I have to be carefull of that on defense. I didn't realize how much just looking for openings is really what keeps my head up. I may slow down on the clips but I am definately hooked on videoing our work for review later. Damn. Should have been doing this since....since always.

Do you keep your punch output low to encourage the opponent to wind himself, or are you just a cautious fighter? Is this a style thing as well?

Following on your comment about making him chase and reach me, my "opponent" was actually a guy I've been coaching. It was hard to bring him out and get some real aggresion out of him. He had zero MA experience besides what he's done with me and at first was a bit afraid to really try and hit me for real. Been working with me about twice a week for maybe 3 months. For while he wasn't really making any progress. Then I started this drills where I wouldn't punch back. For a while I had to leave me arms at my sides so he could keep landing things and build up a combination of comfort that it was ok to hit me and the realization of how really hard he's have to hit me to have any effect. Most people with little training seem to overestimate their punching power.


You are very loose and fluid. I'd love to see you put that to work with more jabs. I can see you frustrating oppnents all day long with that.

Good stuff!

Thanks. That's cool.

You should be able to delete things when you want to. Can you remove a megaupload upload? But anyway, it's in place for members to do what you are doing. Thanks BTW.

That kind of footwork will just lose you a match in MMA, Muay Thai or boxing.

Not by boxing standars, watch the clip again, I can count at least two and maybe three times when your legs are completely crossed, that is your right foot is more on your left than your left foot, not just "heels too close".



-You seem to cover a big distance with your steps, economizing energy that way, maybe.

Trying to defend myself without punching back.

I tought that covering long distances with a single stpe was one of the points of your footwork.

I admit Iīm still not sure what youīre trying to demonstrate with this footwork.
