Good stuff Xen...I caught wind of that sight a few weeks back. The "cross counter" and hand trapping/fighting has been put to use lately..

I would like this to be stickied at the top of the forum. This site is one of the finest I've seen yet on striking and it's a great place to refer guys looking for advice.

Hey guys, I'm Jack.

I'm the owner and author of Fights Gone By and just wanted to say thank you for all your kind words! Turns out this has been a good contributor of the traffic to my blog so I wanted to stop in and say hi!

I will make sure to post when I have new articles up, and wanted to cheekily plug my upcoming book ;)

I also write lots at HeadKickLegend.com which is worth checking out for fight fans, I do lots of breakdowns of the techniques of notable fighters such as Igor Vovchanchyn.

Once again, massive thanks for all the kind words and your support!

Great stuff Jack. For a grappler like myself, your articles really open up my eyes and give me a new appreciation for the standup game.

Keep up the good work sir.

This site fucking owns hard


Glad someone finally acknowledged that real angles are not actually used that often in boxing, despite how often commentators refer to it.

Hey guys,
I just started a new piece called "Jack Slack's Troubleshooting", and would love to hear from any of you with problems in your sparring! Obviously, I'm not claiming to be a great coach, but I like approaching people's problems with research and experience.

You can find the first edition here:

Reading the book now. Good stuff. Shame you couldn't use gifs and stock photos like you usually do, but you compensate quite well with the models.

It's an excellent read thus far (read RJJ, Reem, Fedor, Joe Lious, SRR).

Quite worth it at 15 bucks.

Hey Jack, just wanted to say your articles on Southpaw techniques were fantastic. I stand Southpaw and some of the stuff you wrote as I read it felt like a lightbulb went on in my head. In particular the part about the difficulty landing the jab and leading with the left straight instead. Really informative site.

Jack,

I'm a bit of a lurker but I wanted to pipe in here. After reading your Cross Counter article and practicing it for a bit, I started landing it in sparring quite often. Your articles are great; they are very well written and informative.

Keep up the good work! I'll be checking out your book.

Hey guys,

Massive thanks for all the kind words about my book! I was going to give you all a heads up about it but it seems you already found it. ;) Here's the link anyway:
http://www.fightsgoneby.com/p/...

I won't pretend I'm Anderson Silva or Fedor, but I've tried to keep it all killer and no filler!

Another piece of exciting news is that I'm now on the BloodyElbow staff, my first piece can be seen here:

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/...ns-vs-Jon-Jones

Once again, thank you all so much for your support!

Jack
