Measure Punching Power
1 Attachment(s)
Hi, My name is Michael Bradley and I'm currently developing a product for training Muay Thai.

It's a boxing pad that displays the power of every punch you throw.

We are currently making revisions to our product based on what features fighters would like to see.

I am very interested in hearing your thoughts on this product,
your experience in combat training, and any insight you can share with us is greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to answer as openly and honestly as you would like (or pm me):

Why do you train? What is your biggest motivation?

What is your biggest frustration or fear?

What are you trying to avoid by training?

What situation are you trying to prepare for?

What is one need would something like this satisfy for you?

I'm drunk. BUT I will say this, you get these punching things in nightclubs and that over here, you punch them, and get a score measuring "punching power".

And they SUCK!

Last time I was there I got a shit score, even though I know I hit hard and threw it like Hendo with all my might. My brothers pal who hits like a wet noodle set a new highscore with this weird flail thing. I just don't get them or trust them.

If you could get it to be accurate so that horse shit doesn't happen and I can look like a man then awesome.

I'm drunk, good luck.

Editing to include you're wee thingy;

Why do you train? What is your biggest motivation? To begin with I done K-1 style kickboxing to get fit, now I want to compete in the most realistic combat sport available.

What is your biggest frustration or fear? Right now, an injury, like the one to my knee right now, that prevents or hinders me from training.

long term, getting beat, I'm hyper-competitive and want to win.

What are you trying to avoid by training? Being weak. I like being fit, strong and knowing that I am capable at something. it's all about feeling good at the end of the day.

What situation are you trying to prepare for? I recently made the world renowned "Shooters Fight Team" so next stage is get to fight.

What is one need would something like this satisfy for you? Would give (if possible) an accurate direct measure of power.

This looks pretty cool man

I personally think they should take those punching things out of the night clubs.

A bunch of drunk guys competing over girls and you want them to what? to practice punching something as hard as they can?

I can't imagine how many fights these things have started.

But back to the question of is it accurate... You seem like an experienced fighter.
I will have 2 prototypes in a couple of weeks to test out.
Contact me if you're interested in giving one a test run.

Hey strid3er!

I deleted your other thread, you're welcome to ask questions here and do research for your product.
Just be aware of the rules of this board, no advertising and no spamming.

Thank you

Yeah, if there is no sweet spot that you have to hit then it would be good, but would people end up using it like a bench press? I can hit (bench) this much...(where there is no real world application) I think that you should make it part of a whole work out bag, that logs your combinations.
One big punch is nice, but I'd rather know what I'm throwing, and how consistant I am.

for questions:

I train to lose weight and hope one day to actually get into fighting. My motivation is not ending up 40 with diabetes.

My biggest frustration/fear is letting myself down. I think that I have the potential to make a life change for myself. Also, I want to show my (step)son that even though his real dad is a quiter, that not all men are, trying to tie it into a good life lesson for him.

I'm trying to avoid finding the easy way out. For me training is punishment, and I'm learning to relish in it.

I'm preparing myself to live to my fullest potential. I've lived 29 years half-assing. Time to step up (motivated by my son).

If I were to purchase, it would be consistency.

The biggest thing is mma fighting, boxing, kickboxing, and thai boxing are not a one punch thing. I'm not Drago, I want to know that I can throw a good hard combo.
