    I use the Chain link although I don't "swear" by it, I find it to be a good enough swivel especially for speed. I have a plastic ball hook which I'm afraid hasn't been the same since I tried to modify it.Whoops. I would love to try other swivels and compare. Not even Close to hitting like Alan yet. Jordan, you're improving greatly my friend!!

    That's very true. There are plenty of people punching "like Alan Kahn" from all around the bag on chain link swivels, or any type of swivels for that matter. I've used chain links plenty in days gone by and they are a fast, efficient swivel. The only drawback is they are a pain to change bags, and occasionally the link arrangement will influence the bag rebound when do more advanced combination where the fists come from various sides. It doesn't happen all that often but when you go to the sides of the bag a lot you will start to notice it. And a decent chain link swivel is normally very fast.

    the chain link swivel is a great swivel...it only really becomes a factor when transition to the sides but even then it shud rotate most of the time. i herd with the time it will start to bind up but over time all swivels will wear out.

    Jordan, you don't need to read and understand the "whole bible" to Punch Drum. The truth is, you can start Punch Drumming right now, just keep a beat with the Basic Rhythm. Start with a slow song, then tap your foot, then do the Basic Rhythm, adjusting your punching speed so your Single Fist Punches hit ON the beat, (when you tap your foot..). Forget about the non-punched swinging rebounds, concentrate on the main accented punch beat. Do that, and you ARE Punch Drumming.
    Sure, the more techniques and combo's you know, the more possibilities you have, but you can punch to music right now. It's a great way to learn control, because the speed and meter of the song usually doesn't change, making your ability to repetitively punch more consistent.

    The truth is, I only use about 14 or 16 of the possible 24 techniques when I'm Punch Drumming, and you'll find favorites that you can use a lot.

    You are progressing very well. The combinations in the Side Chapter are getting more and more difficult. That's really deep into the system, so good job! The end is worth the journey...

    JEEZ, I love your explainations Alan, I'm glad I'm doin it right, the video itself is the first time I tried it so its a bit scruffy haha, but you seem to put it all in prospective mr. Kahn....thanks to tichy and goju ....goju I'm actually using a link swivil in this vid, I'd actually prefer a metal ball swivel, but I can't find one, and the plastic ball swivel I had I ruined by trying to super glue it in place, it just dried a bit too quick hahaha.... I really appreciate all the advice that you give me Alan, you are truly a tribute to pursueing something that you love. I also appreciate the praise from Tichy; I'm goin at the bag like I've never done before and it feels good to be told that the fruits of my labor are bearing fruit...hopefully once I've read the whole bible, I'll be able to throw up a vid with some punch drumming skills...I can't freakin wait. Like spin would say BAG ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
