    This girl has impressive hand speed, and fist toughness.

    I confess, I worried about damaging my hands just striking the palms of my boxing coach, and my fists were tightly wrapped, and protected by padded boxing gloves.

    Is her ability to do this without breaking something achieved by accumulating micro-fractures that heal stronger than the original bones?

    I dunno why, but from the title, I thought it was going to be a weed thread.

    Impressive hands regardless.

    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    I hate to be that asshole complaining about a kid, but while her hand speed is amazing and her accuracy is brilliant... does no one else have an issue with how flared her elbows are?

    That tree is obviously pretty soft. I'd guess it's rotten too considering how it just falls apart with a child hitting it. I recently completely removed a stump from my yard purely by smacking it with a bed frame pole until it just didn't exist anymore.

    Anywho, after decades of punching things, I could probably punch a tree and not get hurt as well, but I'm wiser now that I'm an adult and worried about arthritis.

    Plus I noticed she has no head movement. She could add those one later, I guess.

    Or she could stay the same and just go into MT ;)

    Mind you, flared arms is just asking for a kick to the ribs :p

    I hope she does really well though, I do hope she makes something of this and doesn't lose interest

    Her speed is impressive but her form is terrible. Is this girl home-trained or what?

    Her father is a professional boxing coach in Kazakhstan. He has seven children and all of them train. Her older brother competes.

    I think she'll be plenty okay with form as she gets older. None of the children shadowboxing/pad prodigies I've seen have all the movement down. She looks very impressive at the things she is doing right. Pretty sure she's gonna clean out some local divisions at the very least out of highschool.
