“I would absolutely recommend the Power Punching Guide to anyone interested in learning proper punching skills. I started training in martial arts almost 20 years ago, but I’ve never had any formal boxing training. So, I started looking in bookstores and the Internet. That’s when I found the Power Punching Guide.

I immediately bought it and loved it. I really liked the simple, straight forward approach to the techniques and training. The things not included in the book that I would have liked to have seen were heavy bag and focus mitt training, which you have already taken care of (with the bonus manuals). Other than that, it was perfect. Thank you very much for giving me access to your knowledge. ”

“Hi Randy, I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how much I enjoyed your book.I found it very informative and can’t put it down. The Power Punching Guide is very well written and easy to understand. I have been training with some martial arts and self defense. I’m a marine patrol officer and have been working on my defensive tactics and know your book will help in my training. Thanks… ”

“The Punching Guide is great! Footwork, punching combos and T shift drill are worth the effort. I skipped over the sidestepping exercises until later, when I realized how awkwardly I was moving. I went back and started over with the punching build up combos, both sides, with random footwork and the T-shift drill. Makes a big difference!

Like most guides, this one requires work and a good deal of commitment; but, it is worth it. Add a heavy bag and a speed bag and you have a powerful solo training system; or, if you have the resources and time, a partner or coach with focus mitts.

This guide is well worth the effort!”

The Toughen Up Guide To Power Punching

power-punch-1The Toughen Up Guide to Power Punching covers everything you need to know about establishing a strong foundation of proper punching skills and how to design productive self-defense workouts for fun, fitness and fighting abilities.

If you want to punch powerfully, properly and productively, here’s what you need to know. . .

  • 6 essential key’s to unlocking your punching power
  • Before you can punch properly, you need a strong, balanced and mobile position to punch from. You need to be able to strike from the ground up with your entire body while being able to shift in and out of range to land punches on your opponent without getting hit yourself.
  • For maximum punching proficiency, you need to understand the science of “Kinetic Energy.” In other words, how to generate as much hitting power as possible, how to transfer as much of it into your intended target and how to punch “smart” so that the devastating power you’ll develop won’t result in injuring yourself in the process.
  • To get off to the best start possible, or to correct mistakes and bad habits that you might already be making, you need to be very clear in the common concepts relevant to ALL punching techniques.
  • All self-defense techniques are not appropriate to ongoing and vigorous training. Many are weak, useless for self-defense and, if performed repetitively, will result in nothing but pain and injury. You need to identify the BEST techniques for ongoing impact training, and how to do them properly.
  • Once you learn some punching techniques you’ll want to add variety to your training by combining them in different ways to keep your training fresh, interesting and vigorous enough to provide an awesome workout.
  • Knowing “how to” do something is of little value. This is the shortcoming of many self-defense manuals, seminars and resources. Unless you learn how to organize and practice what you know on an ongoing basis, you WILL NOT reap the many benefits that self-defense training has to offer. You need to design workouts, routines and practice sessions.

Still Not Convinced?

Here Are Three Reasons To Believe What I Have To Say. . .

Reason #1: I have been a self-defense instructor for forty years and have taught thousands of people how to punch. I know through research, experience and trial and error how to teach you right, teach you fast and help you avoid the problems that you are most likely to encounter along the way.

Reason #2: I am a professional personal safety trainer and consultant with access to the most current, scientific and state-of-the art information about adult learning, stress performance and effective training methods.

Reason #3: I am a “short-course-specialist.” I no longer teach long-term, ongoing classes. Instead, I have made my living delivering short courses and seminars to a wide variety of clients and candidates. My “specialty” is teaching people, with a variety of skills, experience and fitness levels, how to learn and perform combative skills as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The Toughen Up Guide To Heavy Bag Training

heavy bag trainingThe Heavy Bag has been a staple of combative training for centuries.Boxers, Kick Boxers and Martial Artist have used it to develop explosive power in their strikes and kicking techniques and to tone and condition their bodies.

The Toughen Up Guide to Focus Pad Workouts

focus-mittsI consider focus pads to be one of the “best-kept-secrets” of combative training. In fact, if I were limited to only one piece of combative training equipment, these would certainly be it.

A lot of people use focus pads but many fail to recognize the rapid and practical benefits that they produce in an intelligent training program. When I want to teach someone how to hit properly in the shortest time possible or if I just want to hook up with a friend for a good workout myself, I turn to focus pads.

Focus Pads are inexpensive, versatile and portable equipment that will bring your combative conditioning and skills to a new level. This report tells you all about:

  • Required equipment needed to get you started
  • Pointers to keep in mind when hitting the Focus Pads
  • What you need to know to hold the pads safety and effectively
  • Proper pad positioning for each of the striking techniques in the Power Punching Guide
  • Focus Pad Drills for developing awesome striking skills
  • “Swat Drills” for incorporating street-applicable defensive skills

“Randy, just wanted to let you know how great your guide to Focus Pads is. It is definitely a gem. Focus Pads has something for the novice to the advanced martial artist. I will refer to it often. As noted in the guide focus pad training is for the development of speed, precision and dynamic hitting skills.What more can you ask for?”
