WHAT IS SHADOW FIGHTER™?
SHADOW FIGHTER™ is a boxing program like no other. It uses the latest high tech sensors from Hykso to track every punch you throw – how many, the velocity and the intensity. And it reports your progress with live results as you train. You won’t just feel like you’re improving — you’ll know exactly HOW you’re improving.
HOW DOES SHADOW FIGHTER™ WORK?
WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY TO GIVE WEARERS THE EDGE
The “HYKSO” wearable sensor calculates the amount of punches being thrown, types of punches and speed. The sensors are designed to be worn inside of the boxing wraps and use two independent accelerometers plus a gyroscope for full 3D motion tracking.
During your training session, the sensor gives a detailed breakdown of your workout allowing you to see tangible improvements in speed and volume as well as enabling for the quantification of targeted percentages of any punch type. The recording of such data allows your trainer to draw a lot of insight in to your performance.
THE INTENSITY SCORE
The Intensity Score is a proprietary metric that will be core to your experience using “HYKSO”:
THE SHADOW FIGHTER™ PUNCH MENU
The lead (front) hand thrown in a quick/sharp manner. It’s said the fastest Jab is the most relaxed Jab. Use this punch to set up combinations and to measure distance. The ﬁst should rotate inward 90 degrees like pouring out a mug. The hand should come back to the face as fast as its struck forward. Think of it like whipping a towel, producing a “sting” eﬀect with the glove. This is the most used punch in boxing.
Thrown with either hand towards the side of a target. The speed and power comes from legs and hips to get rotation. The foot should pivot and the heel point outward to allow for greater range. When extended, imagine pulling a cape across your face for correct form. This punch is hard to master but devastating when executed correctly.
The rear hand thrown with more power. The glove starts at the chin, travels across the chest/shoulder and lands with the rear shoulder and hips rotating forward. Like the jab, rotate the ﬁst 90 degrees before landing and snap the punch oﬀ the bag and back to the chin where it started. The legs are critical as weight must be transferred from back to front in unison with the arms and then recoil back. Think of a lunge exercise when practicing. The cross can be the most satisfying punch to throw when done correctly.
Thrown with either hand, and typically at close range. Imagine punching upward underneath a crossbar. Rotate hips just like a cross for the backhand upper cut and like a hook for lead hand upper cut. Remember to KEEP YOUR HANDS UP when throwing all punches but especially these as the tendency is to drop them. Use less arm and more shoulder to keep form correct. The upper cut can be used at all sorts of angles and heights and will give your arms that lean chiselled look.
