What do you get back from a bag ??? , shadow and sparring yes , also a necessity , but for me the big one has to be pads , how does a coach impose a style and pass on his knowledge in his technique if he doesn't pad his pupil ???
Bag work is important yes but for different reasons than getting your pads , maybe I'm naive and un educated at thinking this but i thought pads were an essential ritual to be perfectly honest
