For timing drills the belly pad is useful piece of kit as it keeps the pad holders hands free to hold pads while kicks can be delivered to the belly pad at anytime. A simple drill has the pad holder (wearing a belly pad and focus mitts) moving in and out of distance whilst holding the mitts for various combinations.
In between punching the mitts the hitter can start by using a defensive front kick on the belly pad. A defensive front kick is used to push the pad holder back whenever they get too close. Or they can chase the pad holder with a jump front kick. Once the front kick has been integrated the round kick can be added followed by the side kick. Using the belly pad in this way really enhances training as timing is developed whilst integrating punching and kicking skills.
