Well obviously you didn't read what I wrote. I never said to stare at there legs, I even said doing so is not recommended at all. I just said if there is a moment during a weave or duck, where there arms/shoulders are out of view, then it is possible to tell the next punch coming from glancing at the legs and hips. This coming from someone who has boxed his whole life and has been trained by 2 professionals and is now a couch.
