Float like a ox, sting like a butterfly

I'm beginning to think my co-ordination skills are most definitely not in the area of boxing. I've been doing it for a couple of weeks now down at the footy club as a bit of fitness until pre-season starts in a couple of months, and I've still got heaps to learn! Ducking when I should be weaving, jabbing when I should uppercut, its definitely not easy. But I'm loving the fitness, and its heaps of fun. Cinderella Man here I come hey!

Haha, thanks for the advice esky. But that would probably go against the health kick I'm on at the moment too!

You've got the makings of a great fundraising event for your Chruch here Digs. $5 to punch digger in the face! I'm sure you could find enough people wanting to do that to make a few hundred bucks or so!

Maybe at the next State youth Games...?

:) do you ever use the bags- have real issues with those smaller ones that hang! thats a painful lack of co-ordination- but if my boxing instructors correct- 'pain is just an emotion'.

Keep at it you'll get there!

Na I'm all over the little hanging one like a fat kid on a cupcake-its the little ball attached to the floor to ceiling rope that makes me feel the most unco!

the double end bag takes a lot of work to master. You should spend as much time as you can boxing in the mirror, that is where you get your co-ordination and technique from.

And anytime you want to work on some boxing just let me know.
