hello everyone.

big boxing fan here, but only since 2006. i've watched tons and tons of fights from the past to today.

my younger 17 year old bro, doesn't watch nearly as much boxing as i do. just the major ones. we decided to get in shape again, by running. but in addition to running, we wanted a fun workout, so we purchased a ringside 130lbs water/foam heavybag. keep in mind that we aren't trained at all, but would love to join a gym here in las vegas soon (just need the money, hehe).

here's a video of my bro, with borrowed gloves from friends who were/are amateur boxers. the gloves my bro used are 10oz amateur , and 18oz ringside imf tech.

i am quite worried that bad habbit can develop if this continues without professional coaching from a boxing trainer, and it will probably be hard to break those bad habbits, but once we join a boxing gym, we shall see what the trainer can correct!

as for my own video, i am uploading soon.

what do you think? please critique!

oh, and he is 190lbs, 5'8"

Seems pretty solid just a couple of things I picked up on:

-When he throws his rear hand sometimes his rear foot leaves the floor; you don't want to do that because if you get hit while only on one foot you are hitting the canvas because of no balance but he seemed to have stopped this by the second video.
-As he moves around the bag it seems as though he is side stepping, even when moving to the sides you must keep your rear foot at the rear (lol). This again is a balance issue.
- When throwing hooks/body shots the whole body needs to move. The knees must bend a little more and the waist needs to swivel as you throw.

Pretty solid stance, jab and combinations. He is doing well once you get a trainer you will be doing great in no time. (If trains hard and listens to advice)
:)

the only thing i didn't like is when he's not hitting the bag and starts arm dancing altough i hate guys who do that and when ever he trows a hook he shouldn't bring his arm back before trowing it

looking good seeing as he has no training. tell him to keep his hands up though. pros drop them but if you do that in a fight you will end up wondering why your on the floor with your oponents face spining round in circles

what's arm dancing?

bringing his arm back before throwing it, meaning like a telegraphed punch?

He don't look 5'8 190. I mean isn't 5'8 190 like really fat? And it's not like your bro is buff.

hmm good question, we don't have a weight scale right now so we haven't checked in a long time.

Just tell him to ground himself more and to "sit down" on the shots and like the other guys say that left hook is telegraphed. He can't pull it back like that in a fight cos he'd get whacked by a right hand.

tell him to chill with the crazy combos. since you dont have a trainer you will pick up bad habits. he looked really bad so tell him to just work on throwing lots of jabs. then 1-2. then 1-2-3 nothing else dude. work on sitting down on the shots and punching fromthe ground up. elbows in tight. turn the fist over. snap the shots dont push. move before and after every shot, perpetual motion man.

In all fairness I ddn't think it looked bad at all. I mean, obviously he needs a gym big time because the power just isn't there in the shots, and his elbows should be reintroduced to his sides but he looks better than like 80% of guys having their first lesson.
