    My punching power is honestly scary, always has been since I was about 12 years old.

    Think it comes from playing baseball tbh a lot of people dont realize that baseball, especially pitching, builds a lot of the same mechanics you need to throw devastating straight punches. Seriously you dont want to get punched by guys like Roger Clemens or Nolan Ryan theyll take your head clean off.

    This thread is definitely about a tool.

    Imagine if someone taught the big unit Randy Johnson how to use his reach.

    And yet...

    Every bench clearing baseball brawl I've ever seen just ends up with a bunch of guys rolling around on the grass

    Obvious illusions of grandeur. :confused:

    And even if TS happens to have some pop in what I'm sure are wild flailing punches, what he likely fails to realize is that bags don't hit back.

    Baseball players have mean right hands but their stance gets fuckled from batting. 3/10, would not train again.

    Football players all think they’re Greg hardy. The entitlement is strong with them thinking they’ll waltz into a gym and be champs in a few years. 2/10, I try to avoid them.

    Basketball players seem to be coordinated but their bodies are weird. 4/10, might try again.

    Wrestlers? As long as they aren’t allergic to jiu jitsu then we’ve got a shot here. Train’em as southpaws and let loose the dogs of war. 6/10 would reccomend.

    dancers have years and years of experience learning and mimicking physical movement. Mobility of the hips, strong legs, very coachable. 8/10, my favorite cross over athletes.

    You think dancing carries over better to boxing than wrestling does, and you're asking if I'm drunk? Have you somehow missed Woodley and Romero bouncing heads off the canvas with one punch ?

    just my personal experience in teaching people to box and kick box. Wrestlers make the best fighters, but dancers pick up the sport better, faster, and easier.

    I'm the best fighter.

    Muhammad Ali was supposedly said to have done ballet. Sugar Ray Robinson tap danced. Lomachenko did traditional Ukrainian dance.

    Take from that what you will, but there is some sort of correlation.

    Rocky Marciano (the greatest and only undefeated heavyweight) use to play baseball.
    And he is probably the most devastating puncher that ever lived.

    Just saying.

    Undefeated in the octagon dude. May have only had three fights and I'm kinda fat now but could still beat up my kids baseball coach.

    And there are people who suck at it. Now compare how many people excel at wrestling and suck boxing. I can't think of one. I can think of Jijujitsu guys though since that's far less explosive combat system

    So does this mean all bowlers should be able to throw Mortal Kombat style uppercuts ?

    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    All dance is, is cardio, flexibility, balance and footwork, all crucial skills for a boxer.

    Wrestling trains a completely different type of athleticism, the cross-over isn't the same. Boxers used to cross train in wrestling like 70 years ago, because they were still allowed to clinch and hit out of the clinch back then, so wrestling was a useful skill.

    Dance is universally known amongst boxers as a good thing to practise to improve your skills.

    Only on sherdog can a complete dunce argue with professional coaches and think he's right.

    If wrestlers make the best fighters you shouldn't give it 6/10
