Default Re: Big Daddy's Boxing Log - The making of a legend.

Its been a while since I posted here.

After my first sparring session, I wasn't very happy with my performance, and the lack of follow up I got from my coach.

I expected a feedback training session afterward to talk about and work on my mistakes and good points. That didn't happen.

Instead, our 1 on 1 Sunday lessons turned into Sunday Sparring Club, and when I came back to the gym there were 10-15 people there next time.

I got no download session from the coach, aside from some quick conversations. We didn't work on 1 on 1 on my mistakes on the mitts, like I expected.

The result was me not being too excited about about getting back in the ring and being someones punching bag. The next, and last two times, I was at the Shamrock I declined sparring. I just didn't feel ready to defend myself against someone who knew what they were doing, and being so out of shape I didn't want to be defenseless and tired at the same time.
