    Default Focus mitt drills

    Can anyone recommend any good videos or online mpegs that show a good variety of drills with the focus mitts?

    Or maybe some of you guys can try to describe some various drills that you like.

    Ringside has a pretty good video; shows some good stuff but a lot of crap as well. I have seen a lot of trainers make a fighter look gooood with the mitts when the reality is very different...I like to use them in two ways. The first is for accuracy of position/reaction, etc... By that I mean that I try to be very precise in explaining that the punch is slipped here, your left foot goes there and so on, and if a finishing punch in a sequence should come from a place where the target can't see it coming from, we do it that way, plus I'm real big on "exit strategies" off of particular sequences. The other way I like to work them is as much like 'boxing' as we can make it w/o me getting hit too much! Lots of movement and different scenarios, so far as who is the aggressor, what each is trying to accomplish and so on. I don't believe defense can ever be ignored, not any more than footwork and being aware of where you are in the ring and what is going on around you.

    I'm glad you siad that cause i have noticed the same thing. 90% of the time I see a trainer on TV with the focus mitts it's more like the boxer playing the drums instead of actually working on skills.

    Exactly- the Ringside video shows a lot of that plus some real nifty ways of ingraining bad habits but the section with Roger Mayweather is well worth watching.

    Is this Roger Mayweather in the video here working with Floyd?

    The 2nd little section he does with the mitts there looks pretty useful. Whoever that is, he's obviously no slouch inthe handspeed department .
