Sparring Update

I recently had a good workout with my friend Roger. We sparred a total of 6 rounds and did a lot of rounds of practice drills. We first sparred 3 rounds at a moderate pace. Then we did many rounds of practicing basic punches, defending against them, and counterpunching. The punches we practiced were the left jab, straight right, and left hook. After that, we sparred 3 more rounds at a somewhat quicker pace.

All in all, it was a good workout. I like doing the drills because they provide a great opportunity to reinforce the basics through repetition. Schedules can sometimes be difficult to coordinate, but I am hoping to do some training with Roger fairly regularly. Thanks, Roger, for the good workout!
