Default Last night was my first in the gym / Question

Worked on slipping punches with a partner and various other things..

One thing they said I was doing wrong was this: (If I can explan it well enough)

My partner would throw a jab, cross, left hook, cross and I had to slip those. One of the trainers said on the last cross I was stepping back instead of moving laterally to slip the punch. I found this very hard and akward seeing how Im a southpaw. Cause if I moved my left foot to the left to slip the cross it seemed like I was walking right into another punch possibly.

Is it just akward since im a beginner, or is stepping back some what to the left but not getting off balance wrong?

I don't know, maybe I watch too much of Mayweather.

if you are stepping left and are a southpaw you should be dipping under the right hand cross of your opponent...

when you have slipped it, his right arm will be past your head, and his whole side will be exposed...

why would you be slipping into a punch?

he can`t hit you with the right or the left from that position.

you learn to punch before you slip


crawl before you run. A good strong fundamental foundation will be key in the future.

People always say that, but as a southpaw myself, its bull****. The left hook is 10 times more dangerous when you are moving to your right then the right hand is when you are moving to your left.

Right hands against southpaws are WAY overrated. I see them coming from a mile away, and when I am moving to my left, I am always in position to slip under the right hands.

Just watch Cory Spinks. A prime example of an elusive southpaw that fights almost exclusively moving to his left. Also, when I move to my right, not only am I moving away from his power hand, but he is moving away from my power hand.

Its good when you are eluding a pressure fighter, but against anyone with an educated left hand, you want to be moving to your left.

It all depends on whether you have offense or defense in mind. From a defensive point of view, it is safer to slip opposite to what ever he throws at you. For example if he throws his right slip to his left. The lateral movement from the waist must be followed with an opposite movement to get yourself centered and the last thing you want to do is center yourself into a lefthook! Remember after he throws the right it is likely to be followed by the lefthook. When he starts throwing it you want to be moving away automatically.

Initially it is easier to learn how to slip a punch if you don't move your feet. Learning to coordinate feet with lateral movement from the waist is difficult for most people.

If offense is the issue then you can slip either left or right so long as it is accompanied by a sensible sequence punches which optimizes leverage and does not put you out of balance. This is why boxers do drills.
