ive never seen anything like that wall one before. if you end up choosing that one make sure to let me know how it works. i have limited space over here as well, and i might try one out

I've used the Hook and uppercut bag before however I'm not too sure that I used the twins brand. It's pretty good for practicing your hooks, but the uppercuts seem a little akward but still do-able. As for the jabs and crosses I don't really like it because of the limited space to strike. Also when you throw hooks it makes a pretty noisy sound, idk if you have to worry about the sound but I just thought I'd tell you.

I wish I saw this topic sooner so I could have gotten back to you quicker, my b halal.

Stay away from that wall piece of crap, your never going to learn footwork with a stationary unit, very rarely will your opponent stay in one spot and let you hit them.... :biggrin:

u dont work foot work on a bag. a statioary target is better for me but im still not sold cuz i dont know whether or not itll put a hole in my wall or if i can even use it and get a workout. im not brave enough (or better yet rich enough) to be the first to try it here.

I'm not trying to be an ass brother but your absolutely wrong about the footwork...I've boxed for over 20 years ( Amateur T.G.G., P.A.B.A, and as a pro club fighter Heights Gym Houston,TX..)....A moving heavy bag helps you develop your footwork and a stationary will not...There are more drills to help your footwork, but working your fundamentals on stationary bag or apparatus will only help your punching.... Good Luck...

i dont think i said its not possible but there are other better ways to work footwork. a bag is more for conditioning.

i agree it is good for fw. if u have a bag that nearly touches the ground than i see why ud think that. a bag that goes down to about the knees it will be good for fw
