Here are two drills that are taken from my Fast Hands: Boxing Strikes for MMA DVD. The first one is a 17 punch combination that’ll get you accustomed to throwing all the different punches you have available to you and the second one combines your punches with MMA appropriate footwork and defense.

Below the video you’ll find the specific movements written down for you so you can print it out, take it to the gym, and practice.
