In relation to head movement In warm up, my sensei has always made the class punch above our heads, like we are punching an opponant who is on the roof. He has always drilled into us the importance of head movement (things like seeing behind the heavy bag when you throw punches. well, yesterday he taught us that when you go in punching, to move your head to the side, but also to have your head down so that if you catch a punch going in, it will just hit the top of your head. I didn't get a chance to ask him, but i am wondering if, those drills where he has us punch above our head, is sort of the same concept when you are going in punching with your head down (ie you are punching above your head with your arms, but horizontally so you hit your opponant in front of you).It worked wonders when i sparred later in class.I was alot more ballsy when it came to throwing punches. anyway he keeps said that hands are number one in kickboxing, so i am working my boxing technique like noones business.
