Target training drill

 
video
*this drill works best with a partner*
With a partner

1. Have your partner hold a target.  This can be professional punching pads, a pillow, or even just their hands (depending on how hard you plan on punching)
2. Have the partner tell you when to punch the target, but making sure that they give you time to fix your stance in between each punch
3. Do this ten times per round

Without a partner

1. In place of a partner, you can use a punching bag (hanging or standing) or punch a target taped on a wall (but be careful not to punch to hard and hurt your hand)
2. Throw a punch every few seconds, giving you time to fix your stance in between each punch
3. Do this ten times per round

This drill will help you aim better.  When done with a partner, it can also improve your reflexes.  Since you do not know when you will have to throw the punch, you have to stay focused and ready to punch at any moment.
