Coaches Charles Martinez and Vince Salvador had to check out the Oculus Quest 2 and play boxing game Thrill of the Fight! Enjoy watching them analyze the game and find benefit for actual training plus actually get a workout. Virtual reality has come a long way and now really offers a next level of interactive fun.
Hey, what’s up? This is Coach Chuck, Coach Vince from The Arena. Today we’re going to be trying the Oculus. We’re going to try Thrill of the Fight boxing game, so we’ll see how that goes.
Oh s**t. Nice. He actually hit me.
This was fun, dude.
The winner is the red corner.
What corner am I?
Did I win?
Holy s**t. That’s a f***ing workout.
I can’t let that motherf***er win, bro. I couldn’t. I hit him with everything, dude.
That was actually pretty fun. Yeah. I mean, I tried to play with as many different options as possible, like see if it created openings, how it reacted to stuff, and it showed me where strikes work. I can go high. I can go low. I can touch the body and see where things opened up. It’s a good tool if you already have some basic skills to actually see an opponent without that fear of getting hit, it was definitely interesting. It feels a lot more real than you think.
Pretty realistic. The range was on point. It’s a workout. You know, you’re out there and the guy reacts the way a normal guy would react in a real fight, so it’s like being able to see all the little small details like footwork and understanding angles without actually getting hit. So I mean, I think it’s a good training tool, but it’s also a lot of fun.
