  • Punch Professor, Paulie D, passes

    I am sure most of you know Paulie D through his YT channel. And some may know him personally. Paul passed recently.



    Here is the only thing I could find about his passing.

    RIP Paul.
    This makes me very Sad, as we had communicated a lot in the past. Like most, we lost touch in the past few years but he did email me about new postings on his or my channel. He joy for all things "punching" and teaching was obvious and he leaves a legacy of his own.


    I am equally sad that Chris Rea of "Reashape", creator the the EZspeedbag also passed away in April 2021

    I personally miss them both. This is the saddest part of living, ... losing people and pets we care about. Cherish your friends and your time with them.

      I can't believe he passed away, He seemed so healthy, I have picked up a few things from him and he has also given me ideas on training apparatuses. I wouldn't have ever picked up a Wrecking bag if it wasn't for his video and me asking questions about it, Seeing him hit on the Wrecking bag I could see the big benefits of having the bag swing around and causing you to move into position for your strikes. He will be Missed, Love goes out to his family.

        Indeed he and Chris seemed in great shape. But they could have had ongoing health issues that we knew nothing about, And in this time of Covid, Your current state of health can apparently mean nothing. A disease doesn't care. But I do know that our bagging family has lost some giants lately.

            Paul had a special gift. He taught not just with his boxing wisdom which was great but with his passion, heart & soul which made him great. He cared enough about us to teach & share what he embraced & he never failed to show his gratitude for a kindly response to his technique’s. I and many others will miss him.

                I’m sad to read this. I, too, had stumbled upon his YT videos and enjoyed watching him.
