I just realized that i suck at it...... So my work schedule changes again, i'm back to working during daylight, so i gotta join a new gym that caters to those hours. Friend told me about a real good boxing gym, trains alot of amateurs. So i go ahead and train with them. The owner watches me train and asks "you're a kicker eh?", i say "excuse me?"(lol), he says "i can tell you fight with kicks." I tell him about my previous Muay Thai training, and how i want to learn just textbook boxing, nothing fancy. Sparring time. These little teenagers run circles around me, provided it is an amateur gym, the punches were a bit lighter than what i was used to. But i have never been tagged in the face so many times in my life. Then i overhear the owner talking to his assistant instructor, he says something like. "Kid's supposed to be a kickboxer, but he has no legs." then they giggle. then i hear "yeah theboy definitely learned how to use his hands before he learned to use his feet." I didn't understand what they meant until the drive home. I know they were just poking fun at me, but it got me thinking. I am a little lead-footed, my movement is a little choppy and awkward. It wasn't a huge problem in muay thai though because of the nature of the sport, i could easily pick off attacks by just maintaining my rhythm or "thai walk". But the thing is, i wanna fight under K-1 type rules, not muay thai. So i gotta make myself quicker on the feet somehow. Any tips?? I'm pretty good at skipping rope, but for some reason it doesn't transfer well into my boxing stance. I still remain flat-footed, waddling along.
