Default What Is The proper way to slip?

There are so many variations, like my first gym taught me a different way from the second, the second gyms telling me with my upperbody, this youtube video says you have to pivot your feet and bending your legs


BORKED


what is the proper and easiest most comfortable way to slip?

i like how the guy in the video is slipping but the pivoting makes everything to slow.

Default Re: What Is The proper way to slip?

When you slip punches, there are two things to keep in mind. First, make the least movement necessary. You want the punch to miss you, just barely, because it is better for countering. Second, when you slip, counter, always. Otherwise it is a waste of time and you are tipping off your intentions. Slipping creates an opening and you punch through that opening.
The guy in the video shows to slips, to the outside, then to the inside. I've found that if you look at it this way, it is helpful: Slipping to the outside of a jab (assuming both boxers are orthodox) is the exact same motion as throwing a left hook. Thus when you slip that way the left hook to the chin or solar plexus is the natural counter. Slipping inside the jab is the exact same motion as throwing a straight right hand, so you slip and throw the right to the heart.
One last thing. A lot of people tend to get into a swaying, rolling type of motion when they slip, or bob-and-weave, and that is not the best way to do it. Consider the violence and sharpness of the punching motion; the slip should be the same. Especially since you should be punching with the slip.

I was always taught its like a rotation, with the weight on the foot of the side you are rotating towards. So a left slip was a small rotation counter clockwise, with the weight on the left foot.

I used to slip like the guy in the video, bending my knees and turning my whole body like that, but my trainer got me off it for smaller upper body rotation that keeps my base intact.

I'm not sure what his point is about bringing your chin back up as you slip from left to right - if your opponent mixes it up and throws a looping right hook as he said, it's going to get you either way. Just gotta keep your hands up.

if your slipping to not get hit ,,simply keep your body as still as possible and move your head with your neck from left or right only just missing the punch

if your going to counter punch you would do the same but transfer your weight to the front foot & lean forward into your punch to get maximum impact

what the guy in the video is doing would be OK if your opponents keeps coming forward walking onto the punchers ,,,with that sort of movement you would be throwing hooks or uppercuts with your opponent up close,for maximum leverage

The guy in the video is showing correct slipping technique, using your feet to rotate your body, though you don't have to rotate that much.

HOWEVER, the slipping sequence is a guarantee to get KTFO!

Because, after you slip the jab to the outside, as you bring your head across to slip the right hand, you are sending your head into the very path of it. One small miscalculation by you, or change of timing by the opponent, and you're gonna get hit FLUSH! And when you're a bit tired, and can't react as fast, it is a recipe for disaster. It's why Tyson got clobbered by Douglas and Holyfield.

After slipping the jab to the outside, you must slip the right in the same direction (now to the inside). This, although not as clean, is far more efficient, especially in a long, gruelling battle and will also adjust or the opponent throwing double or triple jabs and right hands.

Then, as soon as the right hand is thrown, that's when you slip to the left to avoid or "ride" the hook. It is very easy to double up on jabs and then throw a right, but quite difficult to throw double rights followed by a hook.

This system of slipping the jab outside, and then slipping the right and left hook on the inside, is the proven method of choice by all old skool greats and today's best fighters. Just check Toney, Holyfield, Hopkins, PBF, Duran, Leonard, Robinson, Ezzard Charles, and other well schooled current guys like Bradley, Peterson, Pacman, Ward, etc...

Examples of fighters using the slipping advocated in the video include Fernando Vargas, Tyson, Zab Judah, Roy Jones, Herol Graham, hordes of Panamanian fighters (excluding Duran), etc... They all get bombed out sooner or later.

The slipping technique is correct. The sequence is not.

I cant slip for shit, and always seem to slip into punches, and i was knackered when i was sparring last time and very lucky not to get put on my ass. Got hit with a few big rights by all of my opponents lol. Think i either slip, bob n weave either too slowly or too predictable.

yeah pretty good video. Definitely showing some basics. Slipping with some footwork will get a better feel for the slip than just standing upright and stationary. You can slip to the outside then step even further to the outside, theres no rule you have to put your head back to it's original position.
