It's a little more than two weeks now until the move to Tokyo and I’m winding down my boxing training - very much against my will - at the Fight and Fitness gym in San Francisco. I had a private session on Fri/20 with my trainer, SF Golden Gloves champ Chris Cariaso and here’s his assessment of me after eight month of jumping rope, drills, shadow boxing, working the bag, and all that other stuff.
My biggest problems include not following through all the way on my punches. I’m also on the stiff side and need to better coordinate my head movement with my footwork (this is totally me in a nutshell, even outside the gym). The plus side is that I have sharp punches, good defense, and a long reach to work with.
So there you go.
