Hi guys and gals,
I put a bunch of new videos on the Rolling Fists course.
If you have gotten the course,
check out the new videos.
I have a ton of videos I’ve never released,
so I picked through them for the Monkey Boxing ones
that had to do with the Rolling Fists.
The quality of the videos on the course isn’t always the best,
my camera was breaking down.
So these new videos were taken for the Monkey Boxing course,
with a new camera,
and I was more seasoned.
So if you bought the course,
go to the download page and scroll to the bottom.
Here’s a drill I do.
Better hand speed,
Increase the power,
and there are tons of techniques in this vid
which is on the Rolling Fists course.
I’m going to tell you how to hit harder.
It’s going to get a little weird,
but that’s okay.
You like weird, right?
You will notice in the drill above
that I hit the bag pretty hard.
But there’s a trick to it.
The trick is not to hit with muscle,
but to hit with the weight of the whole body.
I’ve said it before,
the secret of a punch
is how much weight you can transfer to your opponent.
Can you put enough weight on his body that it overwhelms his structure?
So, you practice moving forward a couple of inches.
You don’t focus on the muscles,
on the biceps,
on the arms,
on how hard you can hit.
You focus on moving your whole RELAXED body.
You practice having an unbendable arm upon impact.
An arm weighs twenty pounds.
You build the muscle, increase the speed
and you get to a hundred pounds,
but you’re working your ass off to make that happen.
If you just synchronize your fist,
so that impact lands with the weight of the whole body,
then your punch,
with very little effort,
is going to be more than you weigh.
You weigh 200 pounds?
With little training you have a 200 pound punch.
Oh, you’re a frail little girl?
You only weigh a 100 pounds?
Don’t try to out muscle the big thug,
just move your body in so that your 100 pounds lands on him.
If you watch me in the video above you can see exactly what I’m doing.
I don’t move with frantic speed,
I conserve motion, make tight circles, and shuffle forward.
Now it gets weird.
Want to make the punch even harder?
When you punch look inside your body
and look for what part of your body gives way.
Does the shoulder go up?
Practice keeping it low.
Don’t let your body part show the shock of impact.
Practice punching in this manner
until your body does not reveal any of the weight
that you are so freely giving.
Does the hip lag?
Work on the hip.
Does the elbow collapse?
Work on the elbow.
Do you see what I’m doing?
I’m using impact on my body when I punch as biofeedback
to see what part of my body needs to be improved.
You can’t do that with big, old muscle punches.
You can only do it with moving the whole body RELAXED.
Energy flows more efficiently through a body that is relaxed.
That is a matrixed fact.
It’s downright neutronic!
if you think about what I’m doing,
by relaxing and looking into specific body parts
I am tapping into internal energy.
It amazes people when I seem motionless,
stick out my fist,
and they fly away,
feeling like a horse has kicked them.
So use this concept when you’re practicing the Rolling Fists Drill,
which I also call Rolling the Wall,
Or Lop Sau (Rolling Fists) bagwork,
your punch will rival any ‘old master,’
and without all the work.
Don’t fight harder, fight smarter.
And thanks to those who have checked out Fixing Karate,
and the latest,
the Butteerfly book/Course
Both are on on Amazon.
HAVE A GREAT WORK OUT!
And don’t forget to check out the interview
I’ve got nothing but five star reviews on
The Science of Government.
It’s really nothing more than applying matrixing to politics.
Matrixing + Politics = Sanity
I told you matrixing works with anything.
