Heavy Hands (listener mail)

It's once again time for listener mail!

We've got a wide range of questions for you, and some inspired discussion centered around them. First, we break down the process of analyzing a fight. What does each of us focus on when analyzing a fighter or, better yet, when devising a gameplan to defeat him? 

We talk low kicks--remember when they were the coolest technique in all of MMA? How come nobody cares about low kicks anymore? Huh?

And then it's on to the "Philly Shell." Why isn't Floyd Mayweather's vaunted shoulder roll more commonly seen in MMA, and would it apply to this sport if someone did try to use it? 

All of this and more on the latest episode of Heavy Hands.

Connor and Corey sit down for an intimate episode focusing on you, the listener, and the questions and comments you've been sending over the course of the first ten historic episodes of Heavy Hands.

Connor has some suggestions for those of you looking to get into MMA or striking as a sport or form of self defense, and some words of advice on how to find the right gym and trainer for you.

We also fulfill a few listener requests to analyze the concept of footwork, and how it can be applied for defensive and offensive purposes in a fight.

Enjoy, and keep sending us your comments! We won't be satisfied until we finally get some hatemail.
