    In your first conditioning video you posted it looks as if some of the athletes shorted there range of motion on pull ups and handstand pushups. Is this because of fatigue or because you are more concerned with intensity they perform the workout then perfect form?

    Fatigue, they did the conditioning after boxing. Sometimes we do conditioning before boxing, which makes boxing form more important. Sometimes we do it after boxing, which makes conditioning form more important.

    But that's not our goal. Ironically our goal isn't some magic athletic formula like many of the guru types profess. It's just getting them able to do some cool stuff that requires strength and focus, and builds self-confidence. They feel exhilaration and self-assurance when they can perform a difficult compound movement, and they're stronger in ways that directly translates, and their friends from other sports can't do them immediately. They get a lot out of that.

    Man most of your boxers move very smoothly in the boxing related drills and these shadow sparrings and partner drills. Loved it.

    I'm thinking of doing a video series called: "How to survive in Boxing Gyms." One day I happened upon this guy's youtube channel called "Lockdown 23 and 1" and it's this dude from Virginia and he just talks about how to survive in prison. I guess it took off better than he expected because the first videos were rustic and now they're decently produced, but still just him speaking candidly of having been in prison and even responding to people writing to him who are about to go to prison and addressing their concerns. This one was one of my favorites:



    I really liked his honesty about how a lot of guys in prison, their bark will be bigger than their bite. So even being WILLING to fight will get you a certain amount of respect. I'm pretty known in the Vegas interview circle for being candid and honest, so I'm thinking of doing something like this only based around staying in the sport of boxing (or perhaps other combat sports if I have relevant experience), and possibly navigating the business as well. Because if you don't understand hustling, you're gonna get hustled, that's pretty much a guarantee.

    what kind of emotion and confidence are you looking for?
    I only briefly met Daijon, but my sense of him was a happy outgoing guy although that may have been tweaked because he feels comfortable in the gym. All the footage you have of him in the ring Daijon seems pretty composed and business like although i haven't seen all th footage you have up of him.

    He's good at seeming like all those things. But to put it bluntly, do any of them matter if he hasn't fought since October?
