    I do believe that

    bridge = clinch

    It's easier to see from the grappling side. It may not be that easy to see from a striking side. It's very nature to get into clinch from WC sticky hand or Taiji push hand. The interest thing is, a striker may not like to get into clinch, but if he can't stop his opponent from doing that, he will get into clinch no matter he likes it or not.

    The padwork I'm familiar with is "simpler". 2, 3 maybe up to 4 punch combinations with the guy calling out which combo using numbers. Plus it's done with a lot more power.
    then you are doing pad work, there is a difference as you can see

    personally for MMA, its thai pads for power, and working glove against glove, hook and jab pads have their place but it takes a long time to become a good feeder of the pads, easier to stick on 14oz boxing gloves shell up and let the other guy work his combinations on you

    which is a different view from what pakmei and other hakka arts do

    In striking environment, it's easy to get into clinch no matter you like it or not. When your opponent throws a right and left, you are already in.

    of course it is, hence my comment bridging as seen in most southern arts only really works when both parties agree to allow it, other wise what happened in your clip is the usual result

    Maybe im not reading this right are you saying the mayweathers family padwork is craptacular? I mean i could see how its silly for someone to watch the vid then think they can replicate it with out having their style or attributes or remotely understand what the drills are for, But outside of that the padwork makes perfect sense for their delivery system

    In the marketplace of general boxing, Western boxing is far more adaptable with the greater martial sport. Next comes grappling and any wrestling adaption is a great addition

    That patticake shit is flash for the cameras during media hype day. Mayweather sure as fuck doesn't really train like that.

    I can see it being used for duck, weaving and footwork but that's about it. They're hardly even tapping the pads when they do hit, where's their power at?

    Well, to me, the common ground between John's stuff and mind is the bridge. He grapples and throws, I strike more than throw, its just the concept of bridge and cross, as opposed to pummel to submission, which is what I thought john was on about. <shrugs>

    Getting in a good head butt is a nice touch too...
