Re: I can't translate my heavybag, mitt, and double end bag work into sparring
It's important to learn basic footwork, defense, offense, counterattack skills slowly and correctly as to retain them. Each one takes time to learn and make permanent in your sparring. This is a longer process than just getting in the ring and sparring and hoping for the best but it is a much better one. Make sure you have a good coach that has proper drills for you to teach you intricacies of sparring. Bag work and sparring are very different animals. You have to learn proper drills for skills to translate. No drill=No skill. Poor drill=Poor skill.
