punch yourself in the face? j/k man. i have no idea how to train standup alone besides hitting the bags and drilling combos. maybe get on craigslist and look for boxing clubs you can join on the cheap? a lot of these place would rather have an extra set of hands even if it means reduced or deferred fees.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Hitting a heavy bag helps but can only take you so far. Ideally you will need someone to spar with or work mitts with so you get used to hitting a person. It is good to have an instructor to critique your technique too. Technique counts for more than strength and speed.

Was that even coherent?


My advice would be to find out if any of your friends or relatives train or have trained before and ask them for help. If that fails, videos, I guess for self training. Though nothing really compares to actual coaching, so above all I recommend finding a gym.

You can teach yourself how to punch (marginally) well enough on your own, but you can't teach yourself standup. You will not be able to learn timing, distance, or how well you deal with actually getting hit by yourself. It is simply impossible to.

Find a gym. Put in the time under a good trainer. That's the only way you'll be able to learn any viable standup skills.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

bags dont hit back best idea is to find a sparring partner in tae-kown-do because then its coming at you from everywhere good to learn how to block and when to strike. P.S dont take a tornado kick to the head

i train sparring against multiple people at a time

Join a boxing/kickboxing gym for a while, punches in mma can seem ametuerish at times. You wont get better on your own withot a trainer and good sparring.

I recommend starting off with a karate/kickboxing style of some sort. Once you are proficient in your bag work and sparring you must move on to advanced methods of training.
