What are some good, but basic, combinations and combinations mixed in with slips and weaves?
e.g. I throw a jab (one), my partner slips and then comes back with a two. OK, that's easy but I can't do that the whole round. I need to mix it up but I don't want to improvise and get the wrong technique.
Give me some easy combos that I can work with...
If you want to start basic, basic then I can help you out. What I like to do is work with the mitts to teach boxing, in other words, go through the punches and combinations so your fighter is really learning the proper technique of each shot and defensive movement.
You can throw the jab, have slip the jab and fire the right hand back.
throw the jab, he slips catches it and fires his own jab.
He can throw the 2, 3 and he can go under the right hook and come back with the 2-3.
catch the left hook fire the left hook back.
There's literally millions of combos just think about what shots you need to counter with what shots and work on those.
More complicated mitt work involves movement, footwork, simulated sparring, catching and returning etc....
You don't have to make it complicated, just work on the basics to get used to it.
