http://www.myboxingcoach.com - This is the 4th and final video article in the series covering focus mitts. In this video I am working with one of our most seasoned and indeed talented boxers. Mark Cameron has amassed consderable experience against really high quality opposition. He is a crisp puncher, packs a terrific bang in each hand and is very smart to go with it. As a coach I am adept at building boxing lessons and working through them with fighters. With certain fighters though you often feel that the tables have turned and you are in fact the one getting the boxing lessons. This is certainly true of working with Mark, he really is a tremendously committed and classy boxer. In the previous boxing lessons on focus mitts videos I have shown 6 aspects of using the equipment that are in play, both from me as the coach and from the boxer I am working with. In this article I'll point out two more. Really though, sometimes it's just nice to watch a quality boxer at work and with Mark I certainly feel that this is true. Punch Pad Boxing Lessons #7 -- Let's Do it Again In the video, check out for example 0:41 where Mark hammer's home a long range right hook under my jab. A further demonstration of the benefits of repetition can be seen a few seconds later at around 0:47 where after the long range right hook to the body Mark hammers home the short left hook to the head. There are further examples throughout the video, I'm sure that you get the principle. Punch Pad Boxing Lessons #8 -- Building the Combinations When working the boxing focus mitts, both the boxing trainer and the fighter can build boxing combinations based upon the flow of the shots and skills being used. The word 'flow' is actually very accurate as a description. All great fighters have a definite flow to their work, and certainly when we look to use skills alongside each other we need to identify and use develop that flow. From the top of my head, I could call out literally hundreds of boxing combinations for the boxer to use. The variations are endless. The beauty of using the focus mitts though is that I can enhance this by tailoring the combinations to the boxer and making subtle adjustments that make all the difference at fight time. In real time I can call out the first 2 shots, then add a 3rd and a 4th and combine this with body movement or footwork skills to really bring the combination to life. The first example I'd like to point out is at around 0:25. You'll see that after Mark has unloaded a few one-twos, I drop my right pad down to the right side of my body. At the same time I say to Mark "Hook there." Two words. Mark knows that after his one two I want him to hammer home a left hook to the body. He duly obliges. An interesting one is at 1:00. Mark lands with a jab and a right hook to the body. After that, I put my right pad to my face and say "pivot right and right there." OK, that's 5 words, but still not a proper English sentence. Mark understands though that after the jab/right hook body I want him to pivot to his right and land a right cross. Again, the focus mitts and the broken English work well together. Towards the end of the round (at 2:14), I move into short range, invert my arms and place my right pad to the right of my body and my left pad to the left. At the same time I say "4″, or "6″ or "8″. Mark knows to hammer away with left hooks and right hooks to the body because of the position of the focus mitts, and he knows how many to throw because of the verbal command. It's important that Mark knows the number of shots to use otherwise I might drop my pad and get that unmistakable level of pain that can only accompany a well placed body shot. When using the focus mitts in this way, I do tense my abdominal muscles to absorb the power of the shots, but without the pad in the way I'd obviously be a quivering, whimpering wreck on the deck. As I say, clear and simple communication is key when building combinations. Don't hold back now, let me have your thoughts, views, rants and questions in the comments section. All are equally well received. Cheers Fran
