Boxing Trainers Log Entry 3

Posted 11-18-2010 at 12:24 AM by Onganju
The plan for this week is to bring out the Heavy Bag and emphasize punching with power, learning to punch "by the numbers," lot's of punching combos, and to expand on basics of punch defense by introducing head movement. Well, initially that was the case. Turns out my trainee threw out his left shoulder earlier in the week. This is going to be challenging...

As a continuation from last week, this week's session will pick up on what was initially put in place last week and expand on it. All movements are done with correct form and technique in mind. I haven't yet made my trainee punch with a true emphasis on power (at this point).

So that is what this is going to be, a record of the training...

Basic Striking Defense Theorem

Posted 09-05-2009 at 06:58 AM by Onganju
An earlier instructional post from a while back. I heard a few posters would like to have all my instructional posts in one easy to find section. Well here it is...

As is usually the case in the Training Section of the forum, it is very common that posts tend to be of the “Offensive-mindset.” But what of those times where one is on the defensive side of the Stand up battle? While it is true that the “best defense is a great offense” in most accounts, one cannot expect that the live,...

Why do you Train?

Posted 09-03-2009 at 03:31 AM by Onganju
Hello All… I posted this up before, and I'm digging it up to put it in a place that is more accessible for retro-active reading. In any case, if this stirs any thoughts or feedback, please feel free to contribute.

I simply propose you ask yourself the question: “Why do I train?”

It can be generally surmised that a part of the posters that frequent a MMA forum may have trained in the Martial Arts or are aspiring to. In either case, you have probably asked yourself...
