    do you work on it until you feel comfortable, or do you stay on it about 4-8 weeks 3-5 days a week like anyother routine to see gains?

    edit - such as working right hook or left swing kick? should I work on right hook 3-5 days a week, for 4-8 weeks for about an hour?

    thanks in advance

    In traditional martial arts, if there was a flaw in your technique, you would have to practice that same technique for extended periods of time. Sometimes as long as a year.

    For your example of the right hook, I would first make sure I had the mechanics of the punch down to begin with. (Pivoting your foot and turning your hips with the punch). And then practice that punch by throwing combos on a bag or pads and emphasizing the right hook.

    It really doesn't need to be that complicated. I used to have problems with my left roundhouse kick. To make improve it, I would just throw 200 left roundhouses on a bag every night for about 2 weeks. After a while it became muscle memory and a pretty damn powerful kick to boot. Technique only gets better after more and more practice.

    I'm assuming you mean for self-training days when you don't a partner to spar or work technique with.

    The best answer I saw on this was warm up with 30-50 reps per technique (jab, cross, lead leg kick, etc.) everyday. If you still have time left over after than then work specific things you need to improve. Have a footwork day, then a defense day, then a kick day, then a hands day.
