If you want to work on your punch combinations you need focus mitts. Boxers, MMA fighters, Kickboxers, and Muay Thai fighters all need to work on their combinations and accuracy and they use these focus mitts.

Focus mitts are mitts that are about the size of a face to simulate a real fight. Your coach wears the mitts and holds them up for you to punch and also dodge the punches from the mitts. It's the best way to improve punching technique.
