I'm loving this game but haven't yet mastered any of the training to get max points - is rhythm or speed more important with the speed ball? It makes my arms burn lol. Anyone playing online much? I haven't tried it yet.
I find rhythm and timing to be more important with the speed bag. You can let the bag slow down a little and when it's slowly swinging towards you each time, strike it. Just don't let the bag stop swinging.
Haven't been online yet, gotta max out my character before I even think about it

I've only played the game for a few hours the night before last (take a wild guess why I didn't play last night great upper body workout), but I'll agree that the speed bag is mostly timing based. I've personally found that alternating 2 or 3 hits with one hand, then a couple with the other (just like you see people doing with real speed bags) is the most reliable way to get the right rhythm and timing right.
I'm still not what i'd call very good at it, but I'm better with the speed bag than anything else so far. I will say though - I'll probably do better at Target Practice when I have a second Move controller - Sixaxis doesn't give me very reliable control. And I'm curious - "Technique" makes your strikes "more accurate" - does this mean the game tracks your movement more accurately, or that it autocorrects for where you should be aiming? And does it affect training? If it affects the Heavy Bag, I may give that another try after I've got my stats up. And a second Move controller, because again, Sixaxis = minimal accuracy on the left hand. Although it's pretty reliable for throwing a few jabs during an actual fight - I just can't trust it when I try doing anything else. Definitely recommend a second Move controller for this game.
