    Nice tidy form, and good left hook to the body. The only thing I could suggest would be to set (load) your punches a bit more. This is really up to personal preference as being a kickboxer changes the dynamic considerably, getting too set on your shots can leave you open to head kicks.

    Thanks. No i am not a boxer. Never done a boxing fight or trained at a real boxing gym.

    But we do train and do sparring in the three kings of fighting in my small gym:

    - boxing
    - muay thai / sanda
    - MMA

    Nice left hook. I'd work more on the straight punches, try using them from range and getting full extension. And don't be afraid to start a combination with the right hand sometimes. Venum make awesome boxing gloves I can't wait to get my next pair

    You know you're a cowboy when you chew gum while doing bagwork.

    Like how Frode changes tempo. That looks really good to me. He's got good strength into the punches yet maintains posture.

    The specific angle I'm interested in is the footwork.

    What needs obvious work is the music.<{pranko}>

    The kind of bag work you are doing here doesn't hold much charm for me. Similar to shadowing boxing by the likes of it. Nice uppercuts.

    I put this up to get a better look at your footwork. I see;

    Slight lean ins,
    These short bunny hops of yours,
    Small circles.

    Not what I want to adopt. But then I haven't adopted anything.:eek:
     
  10. Did you enjoy formal training ? That looks like no snap, and you're a light guy, things should come like small thunders, you can do better
     
  11. I wanna know more bout your gym, would be a dream to have a own gym. Cost, set up, rent.
     
  12. I also like to imagine I have to dodge strikes while on the bag

    You look uninspired. 1 2 armpunch, hook with a lil snap. You can do way better
     
  13. Well it's awesome to have your gym

    Some switches between boxing and kickboxing, like LeBanner. then he returns back to kickboxing stance. Makes sense for him due to his power
     
  15. You must have a lot of kickboxing training under your belt. So changing the technique would do wonders imo. Like bodyweight into strikes, hip and weight. Not into each strikes, that's where the game comes into play.

    you realize @Frode Falch is the guy you challenged to fight before right?
     
  17. It's was childish. We moved on.
     
  18. If I want a fight all I gotta do is tell it at a gym, they'll organise it.
     
  19. Frodes doing his thing, he's having fun me too, purpose of our Forum, right
