Earlier in this thread Sinister did said about how he would rather built someone from the ground up rather than having an established amateur/pro and teach them old school principals.
And for the third time, what i am doing here is fundamentals. I am learning the basic prinicpals of old school boxing steps by steps with Sinister's help (along with some other Sherdoggers). A lot of people think this is gimmicky and niche, or "it is too advanced for you bro". No. This is foundational, argue however you like, you cannot deny that fact. Two, do you think Joe Louis and other old school greats at one point like me or they just suddenly learn everything in one day? They starts with foundational stuffs, which make them the fighters they were because they know what they were doing brought from a firm knowledge of the fundamentals.
I do agree on the fact that what am i doing with this whole online learning is unconventional and frowned upon, but i do have a desire to learn, while Sinister is kind enough to help and teach me. I am really appreciate him of that facts, which is why i am striving to get better so that his efforts won't go to waste.
