Alan Kahn hits to Michael Jackson

Can't say I enjoy the music, BUT that isn't the point.

Alan has picked out a song with a very strong and noticeable beat. This is a great selection for someone who is looking to learn how to hit the speed bag to music.

All the best in your training,

Here are a couple of videos that show trapping.

At the very beginning here:

And here as well:

If anyone else has any good resources for learning trapping, please let me know!

All the best in your training,

Johnny Palomino - Speed Bag Star

Johnny Palomino, known as Showtime Johnny Pal.

Pretty cool finding these clips. It looks like this guy got quite a bit of notoriety for his abilities with the speed bag.

Anybody know what he's up to now?
