is there anyway i can practice my boxing defense like blocks and slips without someone else throwing them at me? i have the form dow n i just need to work on my reaction to the punch coming.
I just got a heavy punching bag and I must say its one of the best purchase I've ever made. to answer your question I dont think theres a way. better get a partner.
lol i have a partner and a trainer. but i liek to practice a little by myself when im home.
Slip bag works if you stay at it with upper body movement and transition combos for several minutes at a time. I'm sure you've used one, but just in case the idea is not to hit the bag but to avoid it. Set it swinging and avoid it as you practice combos.
Get an old thick tube sock, and a plastic bag. Fill the bag with sand and stuff it in the sock. String it up to something and get busy. Set the bag at jaw level while in stance. I set mine a few feet in front of my heavy bag so I can keep solid strikes in the work out. Some guys will also set one in front of a wall bag, but the heavy bag worked out better for me. Boxers of course don't practice kicks and knee strikes so they always just hang it out there alone and get under it.
Lol ... ya gotta love youtube. After typing all that in I found this ...

Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
and drag down the features of age,
no folds or creases from unkempt wear
eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012
