An Ancient Boxing Drill
VASYL LOMACHENKO SHOWS FREAKISH ACCURACY WITH THIS COOL TENNIS BALL TECHNIQUE!


James, what do you think about this for training do you think this has much value.

-Big Ron

Vasyl Lomachenko is a genius boxer who has, in this video, adapted an ancient Hellenic boxing training method to modern materials. Ball playing had two purposes in the ancient world:

something to do with your women at a picnic

handball training for boxers and panrkratiasts.

An ancient palaestra had numerous specialists on staff, including a handball coach.

Many handball drills can be done to help with boxing, particularly bareknuckle defenses. Lomachenko is doing a variation on Oscar The Golden Boy's ping pong ball binocular vision focus drill.

Try this ancient drill with a tennis ball. Play catch or wall ball without using your thumb, by keeping your thumb against the forefinger like you would when parrying or checking.
