    so your telling us you have an instructor who can teach you how to kick, but he cant show you how to throw a punch........... if so, my first piece of advice would be FIND A NEW INSTRUCTOR:icon_conf

    Are you in bad shape? Lift some weights to get stronger, and also just keep practicing your punches by hitting a heavy bag. And work on boxing drills so you get the footwork, head movement, and body power into the punch.

    I made a thread that's somewhat relevant. Hopefully you don't just dismiss my information. I learned this from the boxing trainers at my boxing Gym.

    You don't have to keep the back foot in the same place.

    As a TKD world champ he's got to have at least some
    punching? Don't know if boxing-type punching will
    work with tkd footwork and movement though to be honest.

    Help-Me too-Hey, I live in Melbourne, Australia i am starting the move towards amatuer MMA competition, i have no experience, just joined a BJJ/Muay Thai Dojo my regieme will be as follows for the first 3 months.

    Week 1-3 (Daily)
    50 pushups upon waking and before bed
    80 situps upon waking and before bed
    10 minutes skipping
    90 minute extreme stretching before bed (i stretch all the time no matter whats happening but dedicated time, i am very unflexible at 6,2" i cant get near a half lotus and this neds to change)
    light bagwork daily
    at least 3 litres of water.
    Weekly
    (3 times) BJJ
    (twice a week) 20 minute run

    Week 4-8
    60 pushups upon waking and before bed
    100 situps upon waking and before bed
    Same fluid and stretching
    Same skipping
    10 minutes of Floor to Ceiling daily
    move to 4 classes per week
    25 minute runs 3 times per week

    Week 9-13
    25 minute run 4 times per week
    75 pushups upon waking and before bed (150)
    125 situps upon waking and before bed (250)
    7 classes per week (5 BJJ 2 Muay Thai)
    Same skipping, bagwork and Floor2ceiling workouts and additional fluid as needed
    1 weights session per week (or kettlebell)

    i am not really unfit but not conditioned, so average i suppose i wanna have my first fight (amatuer) 1 year from when this reigeme starts. (4 days of alcohol left)

    the reason i am doing more BJJ is that i already have fast hands, and i dont want to get taken down and have the shit Gnp'ed outta me in my first fight so mainly gonna be guard work.

    Please guys give me advise, is this practicle? a good base? any oversights? help a newbie!

    Cheers for any help you can provide.

    no squats,no lunges,no deadlifts?...NO WEIGHTS?! and...i once heard that when u reach 50 reps easy you gotta change that exercise and go to the next level..for example now u can do 50 push ups...start doing push ups with claps

    Oh ok...

    umm.. im not a big fan of Melbourne Martial arts and if you are serious about fighting, id stay well away.

    They havent produced a fighter in years and i felt sorry for the ones they did produce.

    if you've never trained before and just want to get fit and learn a basic or 2, then by all means train there.

    If you want to fight, theres much better gyms around
