Beginner Boxing Lessons : How to Stop a Swinging Punching Bag
The next clip we’re going to learn how to
stop a swinging heavy bag with a short, chopping left hand. You’re an orthodox fighter and
you’re jabbing with your left hand, what’s going to happen is as you throw the left and
then hit the bag with a powerful right hand, the bag is going to go swinging back and forth.
You pretty much have to wait for it to stop. You shouldn’t hit a bag coming straight at
you, and you shouldn’t hit a bag going directly away, you’re leaning too far. In order to
do that what we’re going to do is as you throw the left and then continue on with a big,
powerful right, we’re going to try to stop the swinging bag with a short, chopping left
jab, and then you can step back and then you can continue on with some more combinations.
Nick’s going to help us out with that move. Nick? Okay. As you can see, when he was hitting
it with a powerful right and he’d come back with that short, choppy left jab, even though
the bag didn’t stop completely, it stopped more than enough for him to continue on with
another combination. Thank you.
