Chris and I today…
2 rounds shadow boxing
2 rounds focus gloves
3 rounds 3 count cadence drill
Chris has a fight coming up in Feb, so we are really hitting the boxing quite hard, pun intended. Our focus this week was on distance and closing off lines via different attitudes (boxing stances). We started with Mendoza’s guard making sure we had a good inclining upper body and square stance making sure to give a false sense of distance. We then jumped right into Carpentiers stance which was very much like Joe Louis’s…this particular attitude is very good at shutting down a mirror imaged fighter. Since Chris is a leftie, it is always a good thing to have another thing up the proverbial sleeve.
We pulled out the navaja and took a look at some of the concepts of distance came into play and worked a few ideas into the boxing.
At around 1 1/2 hours it was a shortt session but very very productive.
