Default Re: Sparring vid. Tips?

Arm punchers always look stiff because there is a disconnect between their lower and upper body. They use their legs to step, then they try to stand still and balance while punching with their arms. Everytime someone like that throws a punch they throw themselves off balance, that's why beginners like tony80 try to adopt such a wide stance, to give themselves a larger base of support (because they need it). Very poor punching mechanics, I hope tony80 is lying about his experience and is still a noob because you wouldn't want those movement patterns being ingrained.
