It isn't apparent to me what the purpose of that would be...And are there other sessions where you un-learn the bad habits that are going unaddressed there?

I've experimented with padding like this- it was ace I looked really good but when I watched what my boxer was doing he looked liked he'd regressed 6 months.

I can pad like this but I choose not to- hopefully for the reasons Greys and Scrap think this is nonsense. Balance, hand positioning, awareness, tempo, power and most apparent on this video... unrealistic movements.

i think mayweather padding can provide you with better coordination in some movements, like ducking, blocking and escavading shots while still staying in opportunity to counter.

i think it also puts your awareness on higher level, because all moves that mayweathers are practicing are the most common in boxing.

f.e. parrying jab, shoulder rolling opponents right and going back with a right uppercut.

why i always start with "i think" is because i never seriously tried it. I got some "Coach Ricks" videos and did the basic things with my friend for maybe a round and that was it.

If i am coach i would never learn a newbie with this kind of stuff, but after some time, after seriously studying and learning this padding style i would maybe incorporate it in training and mix it with traditional style. world class modern boxers are doing it, it must have some benefits.

It's possible you really do know what you're doing with your fighters, but based on your very extremely small piece of the puzzle you've shown, I don't think many will bite and join your gym.
Thanks for sharing though and good luck with your work

When padding in that style properly they are not pre made up patterns. You have base patterns and then add variations to them.

It has it's purpose but the amount of hype its been getting since Mayweather started doing it on T.V. is out of control for how big a part of training it actually is.

I think some of the benefits of that kind of stuff is getting people to think quickly and get people reacting naturally and relaxed. Also its a good boxing cardio work out. However in the end most of your mitt sessions are better spent doing more traditional work. But theres a time and a place where I could see "Mayweather" padwork being useful.

Don't get so defensive - if you think this works for you then crack on. I'd suggest that the 40-8 kid is good in spite of this padwork rather then because of it.

I went to a gym recently where the coaching was literally the worst I have ever, ever seen. In terms of the fundamentals- the instruction, the routine was entirely terrible and has been for many years.

In spite of all this, and a terrible reputation for being a very poor boxing gym they have two fighters who always work together one is 7-1 and a national finalist and the other is 6-1 and a regional champion. They've got literally hundreds of kids who have passed through the door who wouldn't win a fight because their development has being impaired largely poor coaching - but two very rough diamonds there- and they are now getting better.

Give yourself a big pat on the back for 40-8 but remember If you crap enough shit down the toilet some will stick to the sides. I'd be more impressed if you said that everyone in tyour gym understood the fundamentals and basics properly and knew the hows and whys of punching, defence and movement. Eventually someone will walk through the door who has the drive and will power to do something special.

Thats sort of what I mean- 40-8 looked ok because he's probably already got some well versed basics- but for a beginner this is no good at all IMO.

Brown Bomber said it right. I'll put it more simply; your pad work is shit.

Can't be meeting punches like that, ****
