The Set Up
You need your feet spaced shoulder width aside and your left shoulder in front. I like my fighters angled this fashion as much less of their body is uncovered they usually can punch with extra leverage this way. You must not start squared up.
You want the knees bent and the elbows resting on the side of your body. (Ribs) Feet turned out a bit so they’re not going through sideways.
Your hands are up and chin tucked. It is a correct setup for boxing stance. I’ll now briefly explain a drill you need to use to learn to transfer and maintain a perfect punching stance.
The Box Drill
Boxing stance begins in preferrred position and ends in ultimate position. The field drill teaches you the right way to do this. You will need to learn to transfer nicely and stay in your ideal stance if you want to punch with authority and never turn out to be a target.
To start the box drill, get into your stance and move to the suitable with your right foot initiating the movement. You end being in your preferrred stance. Again, begin in perfect stance/position finish in best stance. Make sure you keep your left shoulder in front, elbows touching the ribs, palms up and you progress while being on the balls of your feet. You by no means need to sq. up whereas moving.
When transferring to the left, you start by moving your left foot, with the correct following and ending in proper stance. Be sure to preserve your left shoulder in front, elbows touching the ribs, hands up and you move whereas being on the balls of your feet. You never want to square up whereas moving.
Shifting ahead the front foot leads while the again foot follows and also you again end in very best stance. Remember to hold your left shoulder in entrance, elbows touching the ribs, arms up and you progress while being on the balls of your feet. You by no means want to sq. up whereas moving.
When moving backwards your back foot leads whereas your entrance foot follows, ending in very best stance. Again…When performing the field drill you should definitely preserve your left shoulder in front, elbows touching the ribs, fingers up and you move while being on the balls of your feet. You by no means wish to square up while moving.
The field drill will lay the foundation of moving with correct stance and maintaining it. This primary talent is lacking in lots of newbie and even professional fighters today. They punch with their ft to vast, or they’re ft are everywhere in the place. It is really disgusting to see.
You cannot be taught something new till you have this primary talent down. It will make you a MUCH higher puncher, as a result of you will punch with optimal leverage. Fighters who lack power normally have a skewed boxing stance.
Additionally, you will be less of a goal when implementing this drill properly. Many fighters make the error of squaring up when transferring laterally. A good fighter will see this and capitalize on it by letting his palms go on you.
