Re: Sparring vid. Tips?
Well at least this time they were trying to actually connect. More or less.
Tony keep your hands up, with one arm extended and one at chest height you are basically defenceless. Tuck your chin, don't stick it out in the air. If the short fat guy had a bit more reach (or boxing savvy) he would have connected at will.
When you jab, do so with more intention and retreat the arm as quick as possible. Keep the hand that isn't punching "on the phone". Don't narrow your stance when moving. Stand properly. You were "swimming" (like a crawling motion) when you threw more than one punch.
