  • Speed Bag History video: GREAT NEWS

    Perhaps some of you remember the thread concerning unusual speed bag punching, speed bag history and original speed bag useage.

    See it Here

    Dutchman gave some great information about the history and video's of some unusual speed bag punching in a video called "unusual occupations", owned by shieldspictures.com

    I recently contact them about this footage and found they have struck up a new site on youtube.com called RetroReel

    I asked them specifically about gaining personal access to the information about Doris DeGreen, billed as the worlds greatest bag puncher in 1938, and purchase of her video segment for personal use or licensure on my website speedbagcentral.com. I told him about the growing interest in speed bagging and the history of the vaudeville and early punchers on film. In true affectionado form, and with great class I might add, they have agreed to post some of the doris footage on youtube in their retroreel collection.

    Here is part of a communication I recently received.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    You're on! I'll get Doris and her Speed Bag up and running on YouTube within the next couple of days and will pop you an e-mail when she's available and it would be great if you can link it up to as many websites and listings as possible.

    The links you forwarded were great!

    Cheers!

    It is rare that a company with exclusive ownership of very valuable and rare video footage will so openly support such a request. I hope you will all support the RetroReel footage and post some really great comments to them and links to there sites in this and other forums. They're really doing us bag lovers a favor.

    and thanks again, Dutchman, for the lead

        Yes, it is. Check out this great speed bag clip by RetroReel.

        That over and under the outward elbow punching is really impressive
        ( O-SES ' FSP ), done easily with both arms, and also impressive inward elbow work.

        and I gotta learn that "knee bag" technique. just too cool.

        Go to your bags, boys. there's work to do.

          You know, I've got my big 10x12 Title bag and an extra swivel. I could easily mount that on a piece of plywood and stand on it. Too bad I've got to work and all, otherwise I'd be doing it first thing in the morning...

          If I don't get beat to it, I'm going to try it and locate a camera to be the first to post it online. The challenge is on!

            The clip has been barely up 24 hours and has 350 plus hits! It's getting more attention than all of the other videos combined.

                  Just thought I'd point out that video has been viewed nearly 8000 times since it was posted on March 11. I'd say that there is a little bit of interest in the subject matter, wouldn't you?

                      I know, I said I'd post some videos, but things have been crazy for me lately. I'm remodeling my kitchen and I've been traveling for work the last two weeks, not to mention I've still got to be a husband and Dad for my son too.

                      Things should be getting back to normal soon and I'll pick up a piece of plywood and post a video.
