Message from Alan Kahn

Alan Kahn is the speed bag king! Anytime you get a compliment from one of the best int he field it makes you feel great. This is what Alan had to say about one of my recent videos:
    "That's It!! you got it brother. Form and function look sound great. Just hone it down a little and you'll own it.

and later on...
    "A larger bag is normally "longer", and the belly is lower under the board, making the downward elbow easier to connect. Downward Elbows take a bit more skill on a shorter bag since there is not much room to make contact with the larger downward motion..."

For those of you learning the technique like me, take these words into account with your training! Check it out here: Quadruple Elbow Strike.

Quadruple Elbow Strikes

This is an attempt at performing the quadruple elbow strike with the speed bag which involves striking the speed bag in an elbow-fist-elbow-fist succession with the bag hitting only the back of the platform in between strikes. This was my first time trying this advanced technique.
