Tuesday November 2, 2010:
- Muay Thai Class:
- 3 Rounds of Shadowboxing interspersed with 3 Rounds of Strength/Conditioning.
- Worked on slipping the jab with partners. One person would throw the jab while the other would practice slipping it and landing counters.
- Finished up the class with work on the thai pads.
Notes: I still need to work on slipping punches. Usually I tend to catch or cuff my opponent's punch and then counter (ie I'll catch my opponent's jab with my right hand and simultaneously deliver my own jab to his face). Slipping punches just seems more awkward for me. I'm hoping that, with more practice, I'll get more comfortable with it.
