Changing the tempo of the punches, body movement, foot movement etc are all very effective when it comes to landing your own shots and drawing your opponent on to those shots.

I mentioned in the training forum how you will often see amateurs hit the bag as hard as they can for as long as they can, but they will never do any sort of slow technical work like this. Even when I did it, I would often be told to stop. It got to the point where I would go to the gym earlier or stay later just to do it.

Despite the delay, I really didnít get to spend as much time on this as I would have liked, but I hope people enjoy it and realise how effective it can be.
Brilliant post.
