Bruce Lee's JKD Top & Bottom End Bag Training

Always focus on hitting the Top & Bottom End Bag (also called Double End Bag), as it comes to you! Don't hit it as it is going away. Try to see the bag as it returns to your face. Also, within the same practice session, switch from light bag gloves, to heavier boxing gloves to bare fists; this changes the speed of the bag, and forces you to adjust your timing and rhythm. You tend to hit the bag with the same amount of force all the time and this makes it easier to pick up on the rhythm. Try to vary the force of your punches.

Top & Bottom End Bag Drills:Sijo Bruce Lee's Double End Bag

1. Basic Jab - work on seeing the ball

2. Jab-Slip right and left

3. Jab-Catch-Jab (You can also do a lot of Panantukan drills)

4. Jab-Cross - make sure to hit the ball as it returns

5. Jab-Cross-Slip - Depending on how hard you hit with the cross you may or may not successfully slip

6. Jab-R or L Uppercut

7. Jab-Cross-R or L Uppercut

8. Jab-Lead Hook - try to hit the ball as it returns

9. Jab-Lead Hook-Cross - try to not "wait" on the ball, hit it accurately on its first return and first "lateral" motion in front of you as a result of you hook, easier said than done

10. Pak Sao by capture - you can do two variations in your Western Boxing section of Top & Bottom End Bag work:

i) put your Pak Sao hand on the ball and punch the air or ii) Pak Sao in the air and hit the ball

11. Gunting the ball with either hand as it returns

12. Elbows and Destructions in the same fashion as above

13. Add the Head Butt - make sure you intentionally Head Butt the ball and don't call a missed slip a Head Butt

14. As the ball returns Slip inside and take a low single on the rope

15. Sometimes after you take the single to the left, you drop the weight and shoot a double under the boxing bag which is hung with the bottom at waist height to the left of the Top & Bottom End Bag ball

16. Shorten the cord (lengthening the elastic) so that the ball is about 2-3' off the ground, work your thrust kicking from the butt scoot position, accuracy and timing is important here

17. Hang the ball at waist height and work the knees, you can also punch the cord above the ball to screw up the rhythm and return

18. Use your feet to screw up the rhythm by Thai Boxing kicking and Jeet Kune Do kicking the bottom rope

19. Shoulder Roll the ball (you visualize going to the outside) and on the return beat: i) Uppercut with the rear hand, ii) Bob & Weave to the other side and Lead Hook or Uppercut, iii) Uppercut-Overhand, iv) Overhand-Uppercut, v) Hook

20. Jeet Sao (Stopping Hand) the ball in flight with your palm, then use a combination

21. Place a "dot" with tape on a couple sides of the ball and try to eye jab the dot as the ball is in flight, this really enhances your ability to see if the ball is spinning too fast, this can be near impossible until it slows

22. Place the Top & Bottom End Bag ball about 2 feet off a wall so when you hit it towards the wall it rebounds back at you hard and fast to work your defense

23. Place your back foot on a wall so that the return of the ball will hit you and you can't move backward as you work the ball

24. Male Triangle Lead Drill: With the right hand, Jab, Elbow, Backfist, Hook, step diagonal back with right foot, and left Jab, Elbow, Backfist, Hook, step, etc.

25. Ambidextrous Lead Drill: Jab, Uppercut, Hook, step back into right lead and Cross with the left, Uppercut with the left, Overhand with the left; then Jab, Uppercut, Hook with the right hand, step back into left lead, Cross with the right, upper with the right and Overhand with the right etc. Always adjust your distance to the bag appropriately and work in slipping right and left if you need to, because of your proximity to the bag. Make sure you circle the bag and do not stand in one place


Sijo Bruce Lee's notes on the Top & Bottom End Bag

- The top and bottom speed bag teaches one to hit straight and fair and square, if hit on the side or top it will be erratic in its movements, and will tell the practitioner that he is not hitting straight.


- Treat it like an opponent.

- The almost instantaneous return of the bag to the face will soon teach you how, after having delivered the blow, to recover yourself quickly and get out of danger.


- It requires more footwork than the platform speed bag; more variety and one can also hit upward.
