Its always important to try even if it means failing

Its always important to try even if it means failing

Everyone is scared of failure. I’ll be the first to admit it that it scares me too at times but you have to get over it. That’s the important thing in accomplishing your goals. Getting over that fear of failure. Easier said then done I know.

I have failed quite a few times. My first Muay Thai fight at 16 I got TKOed…complete failure right there right. Yes and no. You learn alot from failure. It…

FUND A FIGHTER Presents…

"WEDNESDAY NIGHT FIGHTS"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axB6mc5Vw4U

Some highlights from the last event I fought on. Great job!!!

My last fight March 5th 2014 at Wednesday Night Fights in Montreal, Quebec

I’m back from my last fight and wow what an amazing experience. The whole time there was extremely positive.

Positive Self Talk

Positive Self Talk

In any type of undertaking you need positive self talk at all times. Job interview, competition, exam etc you always need to tell yourself that you are going to do great and that you feel great.

From a fighters perspective, a few days prior to a fight all fighters go through weight cuts. Now this involves very little fat in your diet…actually nevermind it is the skinny anorexic models diet! haha…

From a fighters perspective, a few days prior to a fight all fighters go through weight cuts. Now this involves very little fat in your diet…actually nevermind it is the skinny anorexic models diet! haha but ok all jokes aside its a pretty shitty time. Especially because you cant eat what you want to eat and whatever you are eating you cannot have too much of it. Anyways its a ton of pressure on your mind and your mood will take a killing in the process. A simple fix. Positive Self Talk! A very simple exercise of just saying positive sentences to yourself. These sentences could be as simple as “I am feeling great today!”Thats it!

This has had profound effects on me the past few days. It may seem alittle odd at first but believe me it will change your whole day.

One positive thought in the beginning of your day will determine how the rest of your day goes.

Back to blogging!!!

I know I know I have been away for alittle while but prepping for fights and writing exams will do that at times. Anyways I am back and will have a brand new post coming

Speed Bag Drills: Part 1 of 3 part series

As you walk into a boxing gym, exactly like the one I train at you can hear a familiar sound that rings through the gym “tat-tat-tat” this is the sound of fighters honing their skills using the ‘speed-bag’ Even if you’re a beginner you will soon realize that this is an important tool for all fighters. The speed bag develops the following skills:

  • Hand Eye Coordination
  • Rhythm & Timing
  • Shoulder Endurance
  • Punching Power

When working with the speed bag focus on control, even if you have to start off slow. Sloppy work with the speed bag will result in sloppy technique. AND TECHNIQUE IS IMPORTANT! This is part 1 of a 3 part series for speed bag drills and technique. Come back for more in a few days
