For all those interested in speed bag training, Check out Doris DeGreen, 1938 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_03KIDtZv9U), billed as the greatest female speed bag puncher of the day. Pretty big bags, but still, very impressive stuff.

During the vaudeville heyday there were several amazing bag punching touring shows. I'd love to see more footage of that, if it is available.

great thanks to RetroReel and Shieldspictures (http://www.shieldspictures.com/Unusual%20Occupations.html).

great talent there, but ive never understood speed bags, it looks really easy to hit it 100 times in a row, but i guess its not.

start off with one hand and go slow
and keep doin it until u got it down then
try faster and faster
then incorporate your other hand
and go slow and then faster
