We're talking about actual boxing here, not Thai.

So am I. Who said anything about Thai boxing? I was a sparring partner for a Thai western styled boxer.

And you don't have to get hit hard for a solar plexus punch to take your wind. It is really a placement and timing shot.
I like to teach my guys this but there is a downside. It restricts what you can get hit with, but also your attacking options. How do you get past that with your boys? Turning the ankle?

fighting at angle with the arms as closed in as possible will help.rolling at the hips to help deflect body shots.



I do think ab work helps to make that area stronger..inspite of what some say.

actually the pivot can work..but not just a pivot..u first have ot be at angle...with te elbows in...

if you are conventional, and the other guy is convential, and he throws a stright wright, you turn at your hips towars your right...his punch should deflect a bit towards your right his left. you than step to your foward and left with your lead left and pivot back towards him after the step and fire a counter.....

The Ali shuffle could work if he throws a punch you could step back and Ali shuffle - then he would be so surprised by the shuffle that you could Ali phantom punch him to death

I explain it that you rotate your leg inward, which rotates the hip and the shoulder as well. To open it up, when you throw a right hand for example, you rotate the whole left side outward (to the left).

I get you - do you base your boys at the first position and visit the second when punching? At the moment my lads go square first but if they are in any danger I get them to go to the first postion you talk about.

First, then the second when punching.

Making the most out of a half-man angled stance is key IMO. Same when moving. I got caught with a mean straight to the body covering up and shuffling leftwards to gain space away from the ropes and I was caught when I didn't see it coming, I was too square.

Did you start this way - or did you change this over time?

I didn't start that way, but I started to emphasize it more and more within the first 6-8 months- like you said above, as a defensive reaction- and by the time I was 2 years in, I started everything there. For a long time, from the very beginning I teach rolling the right hand off the shoulder.

Where do you coach mate - pm me if you like...

Interesting that you did that first then sort of moved to squarer stance for punching. I coach the other way round. Wondering now which is best. My lads are very good on the inside for novices - I like how you have adapted things based on experiences - that's so important.

I like a lot of what you and scrap say. Great stuff- makes me thinks
