Okay, stop. Gloves off. Okay, question. Why do you wrap your hands in boxing and MMA? So...
Okay, stop. Gloves off.
[Taj and Creech take off their gloves]
Okay, question. Why do you wrap your hands in boxing and MMA?
So you don't sprain your wrist.
Or break your hands.
Exactly. That's because you don't know how to punch. You don't know how to punch without hurting yourself. Not your opponent, hurting your damn self. News flash, guys. In martial arts, your hands, your feet, your elbows, your knees, even your head were used as weapons and were trained as such. You understand?
[Taj and Creech nod]
See, striking is not just about putting on gloves and hitting a heavy bag and letting a heavy bag stop your fist. Striking is about perfecting the technique. Maximum result, minimal effort. Okay? Just like the precision of a golf swing. You transfer all the power into one specific point.
[Case breaks a wooden board with one punch]
[Taj and Creech applaud Case]
Stop that shit.
Okay, now look. If I were an inch closer or further away, they wouldn't have broken. See, you have to find your sweet spot.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Distance, along with proper technique, is where you're the most powerful. Now you try.
[Case installs a new wooden board]
I want you to punch through the board. Okay? Use these two knuckles. Wrist straight. Not like this, like this. Go.
[Taj punches the board and feels the pain on his fist]
See? Now hitting a heavy bag would give you nearly a 100% success rate. Not so with this.
Yeah, and it doesn't hurt your hand.
