> I understand the strapping the elbow to the body to keep it connected. What can you do to prevent the hands from sliding forward or casting during rotation forward . It would seem someone could design a vest of some sort to keep the back elbow and hand in place untill the contact point. This would seem like a good tool to use on the heavy bag. Any thoughts?

yes it would,I have been thinking of playing with a basic bungi cord or 2 and see if that might show a benefit to help get the feel.


In the orginal Final Arc video (Year 2000), we showed Brian swinging with his back arm duck taped to his side. With this in mind, we are thinking of developing a vest similar to the "Gordie Gillespie's Power Hitting Vest." It would designed to secure the back-arm in the slot position rather than the lead-arm as shown. I would appreciate your thoughts and input.
