  • My first vid.

    I've only just started to learn all the tricks about 4 months ago when I bought my first platform, so I'm still kind off new at this but plan on getting better. It may be a new hobby but it's the funnest hobby I've ever had. I'm posting this vid but it's not a great one. I don't quite have the moves down good enough yet to do them as fast as I would like. Please leave me any constructive criticism you can. Thanks

        Thank you . Means a lot. I still need to learn how to smooth out the rough edges, and be able to transition better from combo to combo but I supose that all comes with practice.

              Thanks guys. I learned how to hit a speed bag when I was 19. I took boxing for a while and learned the basics. Boxers always keep the platform high as to train fighters to keep their hands up. I knew how to hit a bag for a while, but had no idea you can do any of the tricks and cool mix ups you can do until I bought myself this platform some months back. Now I'm hooked. lol. I find it to be very addictive for some reason. Can sit out there and hit it for hours sometimes and then have no clue where the time went.

                Ahhhhh, another bagaholic! Welcome to the addiction, Alex. I would spend hours out in the garage my first year. Didn't make my partner very happy, but he can only blame himself. He's the one who got me hooked.

                Looking very good for only 4 months. You picked up some great moves on the bag, and I noticed the scissorshand spin.

                (BTW, nice bikes, too.)

                  Thanks. I appreciate it. Made a few mistakes and figured I try to save it with a Speed Bag Scissorhand spin, but I don't quite have that one down yet. lol.

                    Alex, that is Pretty awesome if you ask me. Very solid contact. Perhaps I can offer a few pointers?

                    1.

                    I would suggest you practice a bit on the three reverse techniques a bit more, Reverse Single Punch (RSP), Reverse Double Punch (RDP) and Reverse Fist Roll (R-Roll). You are doing them but with less assurity and control as the front counterparts. Note :29 - :30 and the six RSP with the Right fist. Your elbow is noticeable dropped down and you're punching slightly upwards. When you reset that right arm in the front at :30 you bring it back up. Try doing the RSP with the elbows "up" in that position, for when you move to a smaller bag and go faster you will regret dropping that elbow. I also hear your reverse punches hitting a bit weaker. For fun, Examine every single and double fist technique you do from the front of the bag and do it from reverse. Every fist punching combination from the front can be "echoed" or duplicated from the bag, and when the bag masters do them and you close your eyes you cannot tell which sides of the bag their fists are contacting. You certainly have the control to do that if you clean up your reverse contacts a bit.

                    2:

                    Note 1:15 - 1:21 sequence Front Double Punch (FDP) ' ' Reverse Double Punch (RDP) ' ' Side Double Punch (SDP) ' ' Side Double Punch (SDP). I write that like this:

                    FDP ' ' RDP ' ' SDP ' ' SDP. You do the FDP ' ' RDP fine but I notice you are dropping both your fists through in a slightly downward arc, coming a bit upward on the RDP. again my reason for point #1.

                    Your are a bit weaker on the SDP ' ' SDP and I think it's because you are trying to wave your fists a bit sideways from the shoulders, not the elbows. I know you can do it ok, because at :20 you complete the Side-Triple Elbow Strike ' ' S-TES (S-TES) ' ' (S-TES) combination and the fists make solid contact. That side triple elbow combo is much harder than the Side Double because you have to make the elbows contact.

                    Best suggestion I would have is practice starting that FDP ' ' RDP ' ' SDP ' ' SDP combination from every punch, not just the front.


                    FDP ' ' RDP ' ' SDP ' ' SDP (normal)

                    RDP ' ' SDP ' ' SDP ' ' FDP...

                    SDP ' ' SDP ' ' FDP ' ' RDP

                    SDP ' ' FDP ' ' RDP ' ' SDP

                    Now mix it up a bit and throw in a triplet rebound every so often. Keep the elbows up (careful... )

                    FDP ' ' RDP ' ' SDP ' ' ' RDP ' ' ' RDP ' ' FDP ' ' ' SDP ' ' SDP ' ' ' RDP ' ' FDP.

                    FDP ' ' ' SDP ' ' ' RDP ' ' ' RDP ' ' SDP ' ' FDP

                    To make it more challenging, Make each FDP and Outward Triple Elbow Strike (O-TES) [just a FDP with an elbow in the front]

                    and every SDP a S-TES, [just a SDP with an elbow in front.]

                    I'm betting you can handle this pretty quickly.

                      Thanks for the advice. It means a lot. I learned quite a bit from watching some of your videos on youtube. Your definitely right in everthing you said. I need to work harder on those side double punches. When I saw you do it in your video it looked effortless. I need to work on not using my shoulders as much and swing it from the elbows instead. I also need to work more from the back of the bag so I'm not weaker in the back then in the front. I'm still learning the lingo so it will take me a little while to fully disect your message but I'm going to take all of your advice and brake it down.

                      I was actually thinking about ordering a new bag offline. The one I have now is great. I have the TitleBlack Pro. But when I ordered it I anticipated it would be a little bit smaller. Anything you can suggest for a good, fast, smaller size bag?

                        Nice baggin, your a natural. Is your bag a 5x8 ? I had that bag when they first came out with it but sent it back because one panel was to far outta shape for the price of those bags, if the bag has the black bladder in it then you can swap it out for a title orange replacement bladder, I guarantee it will make it faster. Now I tried the all the bladders out there and IMO the title is the best, it's cheaper at 3.99 and it bounces fast and it holds air way better than the other models...ralph

                            Thanks for the feedback guys! I'm honestly not sure of the bag size. I just know that it's the second smallest TitleBlack Pro bag they have. I would like to get a smaller size bag but don't want to get a smaller version of the one I already have. Not that it's a bad bag. It's great. But it's starting to split open right at the TB lettering for Title Black. Still pretty new so I've never replaced a bladder yet. I was reading that the plastic bladders are also pretty good because they have a lot of bounce. Not sure how that applies when doing tricks though.


                            If any of you guys can recommend a nice, speedy, smaller sized bag I'd appreciate it. Looking for something nice and snappy..lol

                            Thanks Guys-Alex

                              I just received my first Leone small bag. I think it's a perfect size and man is this thing fast. Not sure about the durability we'll have to see.
