How to Hold Pads
Pads (mitt, speed mitts etc) are a big part of our classes and we want to make sure you get the most out of our classes with a bit of background on the technique and benefits. It is one the best ways to develop your reflexes, punching technique and defense technique. Hitting the focus mitts is not only a great workout but also intellectually stimulating, and FUN! Pad work is also the most realistic fight training simulation next to sparring.
Our new Boxmitts class is focused on pad work and takes place on Tuesdays at 6:15am and Wednesdays at 6:00pm.
Take a look at our video below that shows how to properly hold pads.
