Back At It

Started back at the gym after over a month off. Just did some stretching & ropes, then mittwork. Stuck to basics like jab & jab/cross and focused on my footwork.

Tips from coach
* On my jab, the punch should hit before or as my lead foot hits the ground, not after
* Same with cross

Coach said that most everyone is at a level now that he wants to back off and let us work more on developing our own game, so we're going to be doing a lot more sparring and less drilling.

We paired up, started out at 30% and slowly ramped it up to 50, 75 and 80%. My partner is a lot better at stand up than me, so I focused on trying to control the flow, minimizing damage and footwork. My footwork needs a lot of work, I tend to lose it when I'm working a combo on a moving opponent.

We also did some mit drills where we'd slip a jab, and return with either a jab or cross.
