Default Re: Slipping inside the jab....are these 2 counter punches good or not

but recently with my new coach she has trying to get to the
fellowing 2 counters which are driving crazy

Slip inside the jab-straight right to the body
this never works for me in sparring but when doing drills it feels ok

now 2nd is even worse for me

inside slip-left hook to the body
this never feels good sparring or drilling
i feel streched out and off balance

my coach says
that i should step more to the left when i do it
but man
the guy is throwing a fast jab, how do i get the time to
slip and step to left-throw the shot+his elbow is there to block

now is it me doing these 2 wrong
or are they just not realistic to do

well id argue that every counter works if you position yourself right. I know its not the answer you want but realistically yes both are good combination and both are there majority of the time if you one, hit him enough to make him put a high guard and the second one hit enough to put his guard low. Timing depends on how good your timing is, since its a sparring match i suggest practicing your timing, testing it in sparring. If you get hit who cares, your sparring.

my 2 cents
