Filming is a great way to see what I do wrong. I usually get angry at myself but this is the way to target the work I need to do and it gives me even more determination. I have trained for 6 years ( 5 with Micke ) I just HAVE to get to the next level.
No surprises here: Footwork.
I know this is what is holding me back, I cannot get to the next level If I cannot correct this , and I decided to focus even more on this one until I get it right, this is the basics, without the basics there is nothing good.
Here is what I worked on yesterday:
First Jab, then Cross and Hook separately. I went on with combinations of all three using both power and speed.
Looked bad at first but better after a while.
Side, hook and front, then combinations. If you ask me I find the side kick better, the hook lacks power, the front is Ok , but all of them could use more power and stability, I am working heavier at the gym these days, to get some more strength in those legs.
– Working the bag, all in.
using all kicks and punches in rounds of 3 minutes trying to get some flow. On film the technique looks quite Ok , looks like I have power ( at least more than before ) , the flow however needs more work.
working with one hand then two with speed , Bob and weave, blocking.
I really like this one but I would like to know what Micke thinks about it, I asked him to look at the film or watch me do it.
Ah the famous exercise that kills your arms… really good one though I just need to achieve more reps
If the JKD Pole has not killed you yet this one will finish the work, if you ask me this is the worst but I love it !
As a conclusion I would say that filming yesterday was a good idea.
Today I spent quite some time on my footwork especially with the Straight Lead, at the end I WILL get this one right !
