Default Having great footwork, technique when hitting the bag

but it all goes to shits when you spar Im a fast learner but when a bit of adrenalyn gets to me everything leaves, i start overreaching, my legs are all over the place when i overreach and nearly fall, i forget slipping, lateral movement. Is this normal? Also how long before You stop getting nervous when you step into the ring to spar? the time i get to the gym and i know that it's sparring day i get a bit nervous to be honest and ive been boxing for 7 months or so around their.

Some guys get rid of the jitters fast, some slowly, some never.

If you've ever had a moment when you felt comfortable in there, revisit that whole day and all the events that happened, especially as you walked into the gym. Remember how you felt, what you were thinking about, etc... and try to repeat those thoughts and feelings.

shouldn't worry to much,eventually your boxing will improve,,try not to hit on the move all the time ,plant your feet sometimes this will give you better balance throwing your combinations
i still get nervous before i set of for the gym ,,it comes as part of boxing

because you've only been boxing for 7 months there are more boxers better than you ,thats the problem
in time you will become better than others

A lot of it is practice and repitition, doing it so much you do it the same all the time. When you are hitting the bags you have to work your mind, too, because one of the biggest keys to becoming a good fighter is being in control of your emotions. You have to control the nerves, you have to control the adrenalin that makes you reach and get off balance because those things get you hit and cost you fights.
If you know you are doing these things, then stop doing them.It is really that simple.
