Thanks Jim, hope it all helps out.

Wanted to send you the links to those coaching articles too. Here’s a Russian coach doing some great stuff and this brilliant Cuban coach working his magic.

Thank You Fran. I have changed the wall to curtain, and it is just perfect. Thank you again. Kornél

Outstanding adaptation to the suggestion there Kornel, very good. Less chance of hurting the fingers and the result of the impact on the curtain will give a great (visual) representation of your range down to a few centimetres. Excellent.

Thank you for the quick and detailed answer. Regarding the drills I really feel the importance of it. Only thing where I missed more time in the gym is the “finding my range”. I am not good at it, and do not see any way to improve than sparring. Do you have any idea how improve this at home? Thanks: Kornél

I not able to download the videos. I have an Apple…
Other topic:
I have really like your approach. I have learned tennis also with a help of a web site (, I believe if you find a quality site like yours, you can learn a lot.
Talking about tennis: I am playing 4 times a week in morning and visiting a box gym at ones. Next to that I doing workout with weight twice a week at afternoon. Do not really have time for the road work, and to visit the box gym 3 times a week as you have suggested. I have time to see your videos almost every day and doing the drills.
Do you think it is enough work for continuous improvement? I have started to box 2 mont ago. My coach have said that I am the faster improving student of him ever. I am sure it is because of your stuff anyway. I am 43 this year.
Thank You:

Thank you for your comment. On the problem of the download, I do need to address that. Another user has raised it so I need to see what I can do.

You sound like you lead a very active life, that’s fantastic because your level of fitness and co-ordination will be good. Learning the drills is about repetition. You will develop your technique by working on the drills, there is no question about that. Anytime you can spare a couple of minutes, get in your stance and and perform a drill. It’s about your body becoming familiar with the range of movements. You do not need to undertake a full training session to improve from drills.
what he did.
By the way, it’s great to be compared to a great site like It was actually part of the inspiration for me creating, really liked the site and I wanted to emulate. So, it’s nice to be thought of in that way.

Thanks Kornél. Keep on working!

Thank you Mo, kind of you to say. Enjoy your fight, start fast mate and do the basics well. Look forward to hearing how it goes.

Fran, When throwing the multiple Jabs I am having a problem pushing off the front foot first. I feel like my upper body Is turning before the push off the front foot and the hip rotation is there anyway I can fix this?


Fran November 1, 2011 at 5:58 pm

Mo. I wouldn’t worry. Remember that the rotation is very slight, and my guess is that whether you realize it or not the action you have is correct. Focus on the acceleration of the shot (to get the sensation of that snap) and most importantly make sure that there is drive off the back foot to land that second jab on the attack.

This being said, if you want to break the move down further, hold your stance but drop your arms to your side. Focus just on the drive and rotation without the punch. I’m pretty sure that this will reassure you that you are doing the thing right in the first place.

Thanks Mo, hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else.
