  • Biggest Baggin' Challenge

    No this isn't a contest - but rather a question.

    What thus far has been the hardest thing for you to learn and or master in your current skillset? For me it was simple single fist linking! HUH?? I just couldn't get a handle on it for months when I started out. I had all my elbow "moves" down way before I could ever throw in a single fist pass through (and return) Now it's just like breathing and I have no idea why I couldn't grasp it before.

    Reverse punches and reverse fist rolls for me
    Unrelated I have a Tandy leather part no. for 1/2" double cap rivets that match the ones my Cleto, Title, and Heritage bags use My Roni bag has 12mmX 10mm rivets
    I needed to remove the loop on my Heritage bag that had a defective seam in order for my upholstery guy to be able save it Like I said earlier Ringside replaced the
    bag and didn't want the first one back Now I can shorten the loop on my red Cleto bag and I'll still have enough rivets to modify 20 more bags
    Throw your masks away and have GREAT WEEKEND!

      My husband had a lot of trouble in the beginning with the basic 1,2,3's. Several times he bashed his knuckles on the edge of the platform but has since learned to shrink his circles.

        Definately Side-Double-Punches for me. The Single-Side-Punches haven’t been that hard, and after I mastered the Doubles even the Triples did work in a quite short time. But with the SDP I had my special relation for weeks. Just didn’t get a good hit on the second punch (and it’s still one of the moves where I make the most mistakes). In the end it was like with every other move: while practicing there is this one moment when it catches you and then you got the feeling how to do it right... it just needed really long to get there

          i hit my knuckles on the platform once. That was enough to learn me my lesson.

          I have also given myself a fat lip. Once.

              peragio Ahh yes. Are you staying on the belly of the bag and are you making sure to not cross your center line? IE the swivel? When I was having trouble with those I realized I was riding up towards the upper area of the bag rather than the belly.. AND that I had a tendency to get far too animated from side to side causing the bag to hit my lower tricep rather than my elbows that keep the thing moving.

              Belly of the bag
              Center-line

              Making those adjustments are what worked for me, hope it helps.

                I think that pretty much all of us have had both of these happen at one point in time....

                    Great! I'm glad it worked. Sometimes the tiniest little thing can throw any combo off.
