Catching your opponent's timing NEW
by: Anonymous

What your problem is you need to learn how to catch your opponents timing. This is hard for a beginner but not impossible. Start out by the watching the muscles in your sparring parnters shoulders, neck, face, and arms as your spar. Learn to see what muscle he tightens up before he punches. Against another beginner it will be easy to notice. Against a excellent experience fighter not so easy but still possible.
A good drill to teach this is have partner throw different combinations at you and you catch them with your gloves. A perfect way to practice catching his timing while not getting hit. This takes a lot of practice for some while others pick it up right away. Good luck, hit the gym and practice, practice and practice. If you want it bad enough you will pick up this way.
