No offense, but I think he was being a bit sarcastic. It's hard to really take your video serious when you do it in jeans.

That being said, there have been videos on here of people that were a lot worse than you. Just get some serious training in under the guidance of a real trainer and see where it takes you.

Good luck.

If you've never had actual training, then get some. You've got really good somatic focus (which means being aware of where your body is) and some of your movement is excellent, very natural. You've got some "natural skills," as they say.

Get into a gym. You punch good; now go learn how to box.

Not trying to be a dick, either. Boxing is a lot more than punching. Punching is as important to boxing as running is to soccer. You could be very good at this sport if you've got everything else it takes -- balls, commitment, discipline, coolness under fire, split-second strategy, physical and emotional toughness, good sportsmanship, and a healthy dose of insanity. Go find out if this is your game. :boxing:

thats why its called messin around lol. i know i was in jeans hah because i didnt plan to actually go rounds. i know a lot of stuff comes into play when your in the heat of the battle and i would like to have a go at it sometime. i would really like to test what i can do with it with a legit trainer and gym.

I wasn't being sarcastic.

And don't listen to most of these people. Who cares if you do it in jeans? You're on a punching bag. Not in a real boxing match.

Try going to a gym, though. You'll craft more skill.

thanks bro. i know not to listen to the ones that have nothing better to say. for sure man when i get into a better financial situation imma try hittin up on of the gyms around here. only problem is the 2 decent boxing gyms in the bay area are downtown and start around 5pm ish and traffic starts and ends from 2pm-8pm so thats a biatch.

That's very good for someone who didn't have a real boxing training. Your double left hook to the body and the head is very good. I bet you learnt that watching the great Cotto.
Keep it up and work on your left jab, power punches are good but there's nothing sweeter than a good left jab.

Good luck and try to get a gym.

actually i got it from the DLH 45 lol. i dont know why but i love the liver shot. and it was a combination of that and cotto. i watched how they threw it and i figured out the mechanics to utilize the upward motion of the the legs like in a squat, the slipped over torso twisting motion of an uppercut and a hook combined and it feels like one of the most devastating punches especially to land ergonomically to the lower ribs/liver instead of completely sideways like a regular hook. also i got the combo from tyson initially but the liver shot isnt the same punch as his. thats my favorite punch to throw heh. thanks for the comments all.

I can tell your stamina isnt the greatest, but u got skills.
I like you right uppercut, try throwing 5 to 6 punch combos.

g0tcha
09-04-2009, 04:17 AM
heh my stamina is decent heh. i actually recorded a hard 4 minute round b4 that one and decided i just wanted to stay with a closer angle and pick my shots more. and i was throw fast power shots in the first vid too and moving around the bag for more angles. also the reason why i decided to just mess around on the bag was cuz im actually pretty sore from conditioning from yesterday lol. right uppercut is one of my favorites but cant really throw it the best on a heavy bag for obvious reasons. the other of my favorite combos is the jab right body hook and slip over to the right and throw an uppercut tyson style. none the less my stamina isnt there yet. thanks for the comment

That's a good vid pal !

Your punch's / combo's look tight for somebody who hasnt had any practice !

**** the traffic, get down to one of those gyms !

Keep it up man !

For somebody with little to no training you're looking good. You got good form and throw your punches correctly.

It looks like you're training in a garage so it might no be possible but if you can try to make some space when you hit the bag. So that way you can move around the bag and change distance.

Like everybody else i'll tell you that you should join a gym if you want to get better but there is nothing wrong with training at home to stay in shape either. If you prefer the latter, well keep it up.

That didnt actually look too bad for someone who has just picked up what he's seen and never really trained. Might wanna get down to a boxing club man, you might have some decent potential.

You look like a natural , I mean you made a few of the usual beginner mistakes, but you look naturally fluid and not awkward and clumsy like many who don't box do. Honestly get down to a gym.

Run more other then that find some one you can spar once a week. F**k gyms you seem like an intelegent person that knows how to exercise why pay money to have some guy tell you how he thinks you should exercise just so you can get 10- 20 mins of actual boxing practice with 3 mins of actual advice. just keep video taping your self and think of way that you can improve.

moving around the bag more is a good option also i noticed that after a combo you droped you hands as you back away from the bag might not be the best thing to do you could also increase the number of hits in your combos.

but thats all in the future right now what your doing is fine id just reccomend running more and sparring more while you keep up with your regular stuff

you have good hand coordination and your left hook is good,but you can see you are a beginner,you use the same combos all the time,an opponent would see that and counter you,also you have to move around the bag a little better you are basically flat footed an easy target for an over hand right,and you lack stamina.in saying this good luck on your training and i hope i have been of help:boxing:

cant believe no one said anything about you being square and loading up your left hook other that you look good.

cant believe no one said anything about you being square and loading up your left hook other that you look good.if you want to be square you are an easy target,you have to be loose and limber,and if someone ever loads up a left hook with me i would counter with a right to the jaw before his hook is even in range:boxing:

I disagree. In my post above I said that the sport of boxing requires:

balls, commitment, discipline, coolness under fire, split-second strategy, physical and emotional toughness, good sportsmanship, and a healthy dose of insanity.

You get all of that at a gym. (Especially the insanity, ha-ha.) Going to a gym, making friends -- and foes -- of other boxers, sparring lots of different people, working pads and calisthenics with lots of different people, working with different coaches and different gyms, gritting your teeth in traffic and hating your life on the way to the gym -- even sitting around your living room with guys you train with, watching fights on PPV. . . all of that, is part of the sport.

Punching a bag in a garage and sparring with a buddy in your backyard and then calling yourself a boxer is like buying a treadmill and calling yourself a marathon runner.

Join a gym. Get your passbook. Train. Learn. Belong. Compete. Bleed. Earn the respect of other boxers. Then, you're a boxer.

BTW, I fight fairly squared-up. If you stay in a crouch, use a lot of lateral footwork and quick pivots, fight close, and most of all, if you stand square purposefully to invite the punch, it can be very effective.

boxing isnt just about throwing aimless punches. its a craft and takes years to master. that said you have good coordination and seem athletic, but you need to be in a real boxing gym to find out what its actually like. work on some lateral movt around the bag. more head movt while imagining an opponent as the bag rather than just doing that tyson bob thing lol. throw some more combos. double jab alot. work on throwing multiple jabs at once. if and when you go to a gym, take it slow, you dont want to learn the wrong things. its harder to unlearn bad habits.

yeah i know i wasnt practicing perfect form and such. i know i had my right hand was at my jaw instead of a little higher even had it sometimes a little lower then my jaw. i know i had my left had down majority of the time but i feel i had less bad habbits messin around in the vid then most pros in the ring. i dont pretend to be or claim that im pro or amateur. most pros out there **** back when throwing jabs along with keeping their hands lower then on the temple/jaw and chicken wing like a mother ****er when throwing jabs but they are the pros not me and can do what they want and they fight in their style. boxing for me at least at the moment is just a hobby and a sport thats just fun to learn even if it is on my own. ill eventually get in the gym and start sharpening what ive learned and what i will learn. as far as movement, like someone up there said its in a garage with a car in it and it was a vid of just messin around. i didnt feel like moving the car out for a 3 min vid in jeans hah :). personally i like using the jab a lot but decided to just use the power punches in the vid. thanks for all the imput all.

spending hours a week on a bag and hours a week sparring a friend who does the same thing every week would be just like buying a treadmill and spending hours a week running on it and hours a week out in the park running with a friend. assuming you never take the next step and run a marathon or fight some one. the time before you take before that step dosnt need to be at a gym paying some one to teach you how to run a marathon or do pushups and situps assuming your an intelegent person that knows how and has some kind of dedication.

if youve ever used a freestanding bag nothing looks like a power punch on those things. i hate them until the very end but i got my for free so i shouldnt complain.

Not terrible, You were a little square, And yes you had your hands up, But try that for 36 minutes after throwing 500 punches. I saw your jab turn to mush after a couple double hook combos, Not talkin ****, You said comment

Your very very impressive for someone who hasnt boxed or been trained. It's nearly impossible to find someone with no training who's able to keep their hands to their head inbetween punches, let alone keep their hands to their head at all. Your form is great to, you have great upper-body movement with your punches, you just got to get your lower-body movement in the mix, like pivoting, siting on your punches, etc, etc. You'd be very good if you went to a gym, I HIGHLY recommend it. Compared to the average Joe on the street, you could pass for a boxer if claimed.

yeah man thanks for comments heh dont worry about it. yeah i know how that is heh. i sometimes do 100 punches of jabs, straights, left hook, right hook, left uppercut, and right uppercuts each and the burn is awesome lol. someone conveniently posted one of my old videos and im a little square in that as well but im moving around a bit more. still i didnt move the car out on either one so its a bit difficult to pivot out after a combo but i think i did it once or twice in the messin around vid and then walked back over to my right heh.

maybe if i make another one ill move out the car and try and put it all in there. thanks again for the comments.
