    You seem to flit from class to class, not actually learning much because you have no application.

    Is that meaning he isn't taught how to apply things or that he can't apply himself?

    In this particular case I think it was that the school he was going to closed down.

    That's not to discount all of his other complaints, or to suggest that he shouldn't find another school, but I don't think the fact he isn't going to this boxing class is his fault.

    I am progressing well in MMA because I get tons of class Reps and at night I practice them on an imaginary person for memory
    We have done basic double and single legs and I have learned 2 rear body lock take downs and 3 from the side

    Yes I know his boxing class is closing down, my comment is exactly as I said it, he flits from class to class without applying himself to any of them. it makes no difference whether his class is closing down or not, he wasn't applying himself in any of them, choosing class too advanced or because fancied doing them then complaining everything was too 'complex' for him to understand.

    Sounds like maybe some strength conditioning goals might be a good idea.

    Yes, and that includes quite a lot of overweight folks.

    Aren't you using them when you roll in class? Learning how to escape from techniques as well as put them on?

    I have specific timelines for progress towards my 4th degree in TKD. I plan to get my black belt in HKD this November. However, my biggest goals are fitness related. I have specific milestones I'd like to be able to hit for pull-ups, push-ups, crunches, bicycle crunches, plank, wall sit, and a certain speed I'd like to hit on my HIIT running program. I don't know how many of those I will hit in 2020, but my goal is to hit them before I get my 4th dan next year.

    So a professional fighter who weighs 155 pounds doesn't do strength and conditioning? Facepalm


    Or are you simply using the fact that you weigh 155 pounds as an excuse not to do strength and conditioning work?

    I like rolling for 15-20 min only.
    Not 55 min as the class.

    I think that is common sense to roll based on what your body can do.

    I never go to the open classes as its 90 min of rolling and I would be finished. lol

    You have to know your limits

    My lower back starts to go out after 3 rounds of rolling.

    You should be doing conditioning and fitness classes, a stronger core would help support your back for a start.
    if that's all you can do because you won't get fit ( I saw your post about not needing to do conditioning because you weren't overweight) then you will never progress because you are basically stuck in a rut.123
