Show full transcript for How to Practice without a Partner video

There may be a situation, or a time, when a training partner is just not available. Maybe the schedules didn't work out, who knows, you've got extra time on your hands. Heavy bags are available at most any sporting goods stores. I would suggest one that is a longer one, there are free-standing heavy bags. Depending on what your budget is, there are punching bags that are more anatomically correct. They actually look like a boxer or a human being. You can practice even if you don't have a training partner available. Get comfortable with your body motion. Again, be careful. You can hurt yourself in training. Take it slow, get your technique down first. Start pivoting on the tops of your toes. Get in shape, and prepare yourself to be able to escape these assault situations.
