  • Zaza - 4 Month Update

    Time for the 4 month report. I think I'm getting better but who cares, this is just too much fun! Things are starting to make more sense now and I can 'feel' the combinations and hear them in my head so they are easier to link (in my mind's eye). Who knows, maybe I'll be ready for Speed Bag III next year!

    This was a 2 camera shoot...this morning (Friday) after 3 strong cups of coffee. It was about 95 degrees in the garage which is great for the old bones. I hope you guys enjoy it.



    Cheers,
    -Zaza

    Alright Zaza! That's what i'm talkin' about. Nice smooth transitions to and from the side punches. very nice reverse fist rolls... good speed, and, more importantly nice control. Slick doubles, out, and back. outward triple elbows. control is coming along nicely.

    Also, i like that lonsdale bag. That bag must be kind of light, i thought i saw it float a time , or two.

    Damn Good Baggin' Zaza!

        The coffee helps with coordination, does it? Anyway, nice video, nice relentless assault type bagging, and that platform looks super stable, and adjusts so easily. Sort of a benchmark for ease of use and lack of vibration. How much does the Spalding weigh again?

          Thanks ebozyn! The Peanut is a little lighter then the FS...but I think you were just seeing mis-hits.

          Yeah... I don't know about helping with cordination...but it sure helps with speed!

          That baby weighs about 150-175lbs. I'd say... and yes, it is solid as a rock, even after all these years. Love it.

            Oh yeah, you're hooked. Big time, Buster! GREAT punching. I really enjoyed watching all those combos... great job on the reverse punching. That's hard for me to sustain for any length of time, but you're sure getting that one down.

                Hey Pip... It's true 4 months.

                You can see 1 month here: http://www.speedbagforum.com/forums/...ead.php?t=3509

                ...and 2 months here: http://www.speedbagforum.com/forums/...ead.php?t=3568

                Then I found a 1920's AG Spalding platform on Craigslist locally and restored it: http://www.speedbagforum.com/forums/...ead.php?t=3561

                Keep in mind, I'm addicted and hit at the very least a few hours everyday.
                I hope to be good one day.

                    It's all because of YOU my friend! I'd be lost without the bible and all the great motivation here on the forum. I just want to be able to keep up with some of you guys one day.

                          There is no denying that you're having FUN Zaza! Your are shredding that bag and others too as I see evidence hanging on the wall in the background. Speed, Power and Control.....I saw all three in this vid. We're all gonna have miss hits and really that's the best way to learn. It's great to bag totally under control for learning and mastering combo's that we are struggling with but there is something about the speed and power that is truly captivating about the speed bag and speed baggers. With that said, we do have to exercise control and accuracy otherwise we are just having a miss hit session during a video recording.

                          I like your outward elbows which means your ready to add the downward double and triple elbow strikes, working toward linking them consecutively. And since you have the reverse fist roll down you can also, come out of the reverse fist roll into a downward triple elbow strike which is purty fancy looking!

                          I almost missed this post.....Glad I didn't!

                          Oh, and everybody is ready for Speed Bag III! All levels are at home there! the atmosphere is exactly like right here on the forum!!!! Supportive and Respectful of all in attendance! And your skills will jump after that weekend for sure! Just being in the presence of these baggers brought my bagging to a new level and of course, practice is always a necessity for that to happen! But I'm preaching to the choir...Mr. a few hours a day speed bagger!!!! That's dedication and commitment my friend!

                          Looking real good at 4 months ZAZ! Keep on Baggin and Postin!

                            Thanks Nova... I'm glad you found the post too. I love to watch the talented baggers on this forum & learn from all the great videos posted.

                            I'll keep at it and post again in another month or two....elbows...yes...and I'll work on the downward ones if I can stop knocking my glasses off!

                              I can't believe it's only four months either!! Wow what amazing progress you've made, it's a fantastic video Zaza


                              Enjoyed watching thisvery much, finally got round to it and it was well worth it! Keep up the good work, I know there's more awesome stuff to be seen under that great platform of yours.

                              I like the audio track too, was going to ask what it was, but it's there on the credits... Alice in Chains -will have to have a listen to some more
