    My little bro is making a video for his high school media class and gave me some of the clips he had from my boxing training and bag work. video has some sparring in it too. Either way, thought I would share and take some constructive criticism! pad work, bag work, boxing drills, and sparring are all included in short clips:icon_lol:

    Good. I like to stand outside the pocket more. Roll your hips more when you kick. It may hurt a little at first, but that will cease in time.

    I like the shoulder rolls, they are awesome to have. I'd recommend getting good with them.

    Thanks! I like the shoulder rolls as well. I am not very effective using them in real sparring yet...... but you are right, I can see how they could be very important. Appreciate your advice.

    If you wanna get good with it watch James Tony fight. He's the best with shoulder rolls. Oh, he's the man, by the way.

    When you escape you always bring your feet together, if you fight MMA, someone will get a take down off of that.

    I think you look pretty good. Good fluid combinations and decent kicks. I'd say two things I noticed. One, you drop your right hand when you throw jabs. I notice you are a tall rangy fighter and can probably feel safe throwing the jab but meet someone decent and they'll be looking for the lead hook or a high kick.
    Second you have a slight tendency to lift your chin up and lean back from punches. Try to keep in more tucked in. Other than that pretty good.

    Ssulivan, I think you would be served well by making your blocks and slips less dramatic. When you block to your head, you lift your arms really high, and that can leave you open to the body. Same thing with your head movement. You only have to make the guy miss by an inch, and staying in the pocket more will allow you to counter punch more effectively. Good stuff otherwise.

    thanks...... I do have a bad habit of dropping my rear hand during my jab, particularly when I throw it low...... I am working hard on fixing that, lucky for me my long reach has kept me from getting KTFO, but im sure my time is coming if I don't correct that. Thanks again!

    well put..... thanks! I do take a lot of body shots from shorter fighters. Took a couple good ones in that video, just cant really see it from the camera angle. I work a lot with pad holders who are shorter than me, I need to find a couple taller lankier guys to hold the pads, maybe I won't get so crowded.

    ssullivan, I just pm'd this to my training partners to give them an excellent example of good training.
    Is the guy on the mitts your coach or just a training partner?
    I'd give my right nut to have a training partner like that. He understands that it's a DRILL, not a sparing session, and the drills looked realistic and pertinent.
    It all looked solid to me, but I'm a stand up newbie, so...

    Thanks brotha. The guy on the mitts is my boxing coach and was a former pro boxer. He is a great training partner and coach, anytime he really wanted to I am sure he would put me square on my ass! We don't spar to hard, got day jobs and fams at home. Throw punches at full speed (I do, he doesn't) but with semi clinched hands, almost open...... I really only spar hard (70-80%) once or twice every couple of weeks, and that is plenty for me. Not to mention, he is definetely the best pad holder I have worked with, makes learning faster.

    SS...you threw me off with the video. I was expecting a high school locker room with a bunch of kids yelling......ooooohhhhhhh!

    hey man...i have three bits of advice.

    1. throw that jab like you mean it. snap it. You like to use it and thats great...now give your opponent something to think about.

    2. How is old is your brother? did he edit that? did he shoot that? If so tell him well done. I have college interns who don't even know how to take the tape out of the camera.

    3. Keep working hard like that and you'll keep getting better.

    Yup. You have good speed and power but my MT instructor would tear you apart for lowering your guard during combinations. No matter what punch you're throwing your jaw should be cradled on one side by the shoulder of the arm punching and on the other side by your fist on your cheek. This way your opponent cannot snap your head to the side with a counterpunch and cause your knees to buckle.

    Thanks man! Yeah that jab gets a little lazy. I use it to keep my distance and stay in range, however it could use more snap. Not to mention, it was about 100 degrees outside and I was dying!

    Little bro just finished High School and is taking a media class this summer at the local Junior College, and yes he shot (most of it) and edited all the video.

    Appreciate your advice!

    Thanks. I do let my hands come down more than I should. These tapes were taken towards the end of a workout in 100degree heat. I could barely hold my head up, let alone my hands. Thanks to my little bros editing you miss the parts were my hands are down at my knees and I am hurling up breakfast in the yard....... But I see what you're saying. Thanks!

    i think you look pretty good man - i think the moderator's comment about how you dont need to overemphasize ur movements is very true too - esp in real sparring

    Thanks! I see exactly what you guys are saying, I am trying to learn to stay in the pocket and be a little less dramatic with the movements. I think a lot of it comes from the years of b-ball i played (high school and college), where head fakes and footwork are supposed to be dramatic. But you're right, doesnt translate the same in boxing.
