Default shift to the right??

in the book coaching olympic boxing...in the advanced footwork section it describes a shift to the right and idk wat it is. it says to in the orthodox stance.

1. bring your left footback.
2. step to the right with your right foot and put all the weight on that foot
3. pivot back into your stance.

any1 ever heard of this?

Well, your supposed to keep all your weight on the right foot (or at least most of it if your orthodox), then as your throwing the straight right your supposed shift your weight to the right foot then pivot into the left as you throw the right.

If you need to move to your right in a hurry, it's not gonna work if you first pull your left foot back... in fact that step doesn't move you anywhere. You could get caught all squared up before you even start moving to the right with the right foot.

It makes more sense to simply step to the right with the right foot. That shifts your whole body over. Then you can either punch right away or shift the left foot over into it's new position.

It's easier if you imagine there's two circles. Your opponent is in the center... your front foot is on the inner circle... your back foot on the outer circle. Then you shift your back foot to the right (along the circle) to create a new angle against the guy. But you have to then shift you front foot slightly along the inner circle to keep the opponent directly in front of you while you are now off to his side.

I would just love to fight a guy that pulled his front foot back first before cuttin to the side. As soon as he pulled it back, you step in and throw anywhere. He's squared up so... no balance. Then you can go and really nail him.
