Some of these fatter Ugandan women can move their booty in such a way as to be a real art form. It would be almost a shame for them to drop down to a healthier weight. Waves crossing waves. Multiple waves and wave interference in the one Ugandan booty. This ought to attract the attention of science.
Deeply frustrating to look for hours and hours at the Ugandan booty. Because you have the feeling of a different language being spoken. The booty is trying desperately to communicate with me. But I don’t know what the booty is saying. The booty has a life separate to the girl, just as the boxers feet must be trained to work almost separately from the boxers brain.
Ninety seconds in the sweety dressed all in pink is flashing me (bless her little cotton socks) but we don’t appreciate her kind efforts so much, since we are focused on the other girls big juicy buttocks. The pink girls booty loves the unemployed Australian man, though I know her heart does not care. From the girls, its only when booty, heart and mind come together, that you have something special going on. So it goes for the components of the boxers game.
The lesson is stay away from Ugandan booty or boxing videos or I won’t get anything done. I’m more busy now then I was when I had a job. Two types of video to stay away from until I’m working again. Some videos you can watch and repair your bag, with needle and thread, at the same time, because the focus is on verbal content.
Couldn’t stay away. The first-round knockouts really concentrate ones thinking. My thinking is that if I get in a boxing ring again I want to be so fit in the jabbing department that I’m pumping them out two for everything the other fellow is launching. And I’ll want to be having so much lateral movement that the gent is continuously wrong-footed. Added to that I don’t want to try any of this until I’ve walked off the sixty extra pounds I’m carrying. Immediately I move and jab-jabjab-jab-jabjabjab moving all the time …. the calves get tired, the breathing is no good. I cannot keep up the double work rate. 30 seconds in, the fellow goes and knocks me out, just because he can. The last thing I hear is the fading sound of all these palookas laughing.
Thats the only bonus from being unemployed I suppose. It will be loosing weight and becoming light on my toes again. Last time I tried boxing I could do 300 skips in a minute, most of them in doubles. I was light on my toes but had no sound thinking about how to use this training.
You can keep the reasoning going from there. What does the need for a fitter jab arm mean for the other guy? It means that counters to jabs become more important. Moving and coming over the top and this sort of thing. Like Tyson … the high-pressure counter-puncher. Never the brawler as he was ludicrously accused of. Always combining two almost contradictory elements. To be a counter-puncher sounds defensive. Thats never going to work for a short man. But a high pressure counter-puncher …… that combination really made that cake AND that icing.
One of the reasons why boxing is so inaccessible to most people, is that they get you in the ring sparring and doing combinations and all this, prior to working on the footwork. You have to have both your mits up, you cannot see anything, you don’t have the footwork, and the fella isn’t supposed to be beating you up, but he can do so at his pleasure. Particularly if you whack him in the ribs really hard, out of a clear blue sky. Believe me; you don’t want to find out all the things that I found out.
How can you learn your footwork when you are plunged into a situation of sheer terror, partial blindness and mental paralysis like that? If someone was learning boxing with me, we would invent an whole series of boxing drills, that played down at first what you were doing with your hands, head and torso.
The Ugandan girls booty speaks to me, or tries to, even when the Ugandan girl herself is not talking, or not even interested. In the same way your feet have to know exactly what to do every moment in the ring, even when the fellow has punched you so hard, that communication between your brain and your feet has been 90% interrupted.
Why go to boxing training to get beat up or condescended too? Get the feet right first, while you are building up your punching stamina and general fitness. Do this before you even go near a boxing gym. Then when you are sparring with people who cannot hope to match your feet, you can concentrate on lethal accuracy. Not on actually hurting your sparring partners, but since your feet are better than Fred Astaire, you can start looking at hitting what you aim at, like Senator Manny. No-one can concentrate on four different elements at once when she is just a beginner. So don’t even try. At least get the feet to a level of diminishing returns.
Now one of my first drills would be like …… You’ve heard of touch rugby? Well this is more like a form of tag. The idea is to try to tap the other fellow on the back. Set her up for a punch to the back and then just tag her. In boxing you are not to turn your back on someone, and you are not to hit someone in the back. But there is nothing in boxing to say that you cannot set the person up for a punch to the back, AND NOT THROW THAT PUNCH. Tyson used to do this all the time in his very early fights. Lomachenko does it always. If the fellow has his back to you, and is trying to then turn to face you, he is blind and he cannot hurt you. You have a clear jab opportunity to his earhole. He knows this, and so he has to avoid the easy jab with some desperation, but his efforts to do so set him up for some truly massive hooks with the other hand. So you have that clear jab opportunity to the ear, but instead you alter your stance and give them the full power hook with your other hand. If your feet have him beat to that extent, then your options are simply fabulous. These are no-lose options. The easy jab to the ear that he cannot do anything about … Or the more difficult, but sometimes more fruitful, stance change and super-charged knockout hook.
This is what Tyson used against the fantastically courageous Mark Young. Find it in slow-motion from all angles if you can. But you will blink and you will miss it, if its at full speed. Here is the full speed version. You are going to blink and you are NOT going to see the tremendous complexity of what he does here. But Mike has out-stepped Mark such that he could punch him in the back. Then he is allowed to hit him in the ear and can reach him with a hard jab …. But Mike decides to change stances and deliver a hook that has Mark Young literally flying through the air. You won’t see the multiplicity of it, but maybe you’ll find it in slow motion later. If you do send it to me.
Think how that kind of footwork would be helpful in general self-defence. You slow down the real great fighters …. Duran, Tyson, Lomachenko, Bruce Lee. There is five or six things going on when the first time you just noticed the end product.
Look at the still photo highlighted on the video. The still says so much. Young is a great distance from Tyson. The angle changes have been so good that even the referee is wrong-footed. Only the 19 year old has two solid feet underneath him. Toes slightly inward since this facilitates rapid torso movement. Everything in the snapshot.
What sort of a brawler is this? For those so ignorant of these things? Everyone has the right not to be the boxing expert. But comrades who would call younger Tyson a “brawler” are abusing the privilege. Go read through again my explanation of the incredible sophistication it takes to pull off a move like this against a skilled boxer with much longer reach than you have? For one thing you have to be good with both orthodox and southpaw stances, and to effortlessly be able to change from one to the other, gathering power in the process.
What looms large from a distance; close up they never that big, said the nobel prize winner.
Do you want to get in the ring rightfully fearless against the flat nosed kids? Read all my boxing advice. I’m the one you been looking for, I’m the one who holds the key.
For me I at least want to have the feet good first before having to deal with some young kids fists coming at me. Get your feet as good as Tysons and up close the kids won’t seem so big after all.
As sophisticated as that move was, the footwork necessary to put it together, would be THE FIRST THING I would concentrate on. Not extra-for-experts but the very first item on the in-tray.
Feet …. torso …. arms …. head movement. To put these components together like Mike you are going to have to be full-time pro and still you won’t likely get there. But at least get the feet as good as Mike did. Thats only one dimension to get right first. Get the feet right. Then those kids you jump in the ring to spa with …. You know ………. they won’t seem so big after all. Skinny and easy to get to, easy to get away from.
35 seconds in this Nigerian sheila has weird patterns on her pants that have a hypnotising effect. Like a magical rattlesnake holding a desert rodent in its gaze, just before striking.
Some sort of the deeper magic going on here. Escape from the magical booty, and maybe you won’t be hypnotised by those big fists coming from the flat-nosed kids.
