    If you have not seen Gtowns videos you should. He's the one who inspired me to learn alternating fist rolls.
    I shot that Aerosmith video cold. I had not warmed up or given it any thought. Just feeling my way through.

    Towards the end I started thinking about what moves I should try to throw in, and lost my concentration.
    For me it's best to not over think things, and just do what feels right

    Very well said. When you think about how your going to punch to the music, f your concentrating on techniques, you end up just hitting the bag with music on. If you really want to "Punch Drum", let the rhythm be your guide, not your brain thinking about what you're going to throw next.

    When you are dancing to your favorite song, having a real blast to the music, just moving and grooving,....do you want to ruin it thinking about the dance steps your going to use, where or how your arms should move in sync? Sure you can practice those moves when you are "practicing your dance moves and footwork", but when out there on the floor getting into it, that is NOT the time to worry about how to dance to the music.

    (...if you have no rhythm or can't dance... that probably won't make any sense.. )

    Thank you again for this video. I have been working on the alternating fist rolls since the day you posted. It is funny how the learning curve went for me. It was easier day one than 3 days later. Getting it in with a forward..reverse..stutter.. and alternating fist rolls is where I am at. Now going from a standard forward to reverse my percentage is down and find myself banging hands. You really make it look effortless. Thanks again

    Excellent! I'm so glad you like the film, it was a passion project...and a story that needed to be told. Now please spread the word, I'm trying to make 2014 the "Year of the Bag"!

    More people need to know about the amazing speed bag.

    I only had a little time to take a look today. I'm excited to watch it tonight. What I saw was great!

    Hey Jollygood those alternating fist rolls feel good. When I was starting to try them I found I did better with my eyes closed. Now I do them often. They seem to work well with many songs.

    Swfl that's one thing I love about the speed bag. There's always something to learn. I usually have a couple favorite new things I'm working on.

    Hey CeSalt, Sometimes I find closing my eyes while doing forward and reverse fist rolls with hammer and regular Punch bumps thrown in to be very relaxing. That really helped me with reverse fist rolls.

    Ralph I left the dog home and went for a long hike. I feel like a new man. I hate leaving my old dog home. He's been by my side 24/7 for almost 12 years. But he's just to slow now, and he seems happy to be left home in the garage.

    Thank you Rehamco, I have seen some of your videos. You're getting good. You must be putting in lots of time.

    Zaza, like I was telling Ralph, after a good powerwalk in the fresh cold air yesterday afternoon I felt great. I used to do that almost everday. 2.5 hour average walk. I'm getting back into it. I'm going to order ART OF THE BAG. It looks great!
