Learn How to Box – Boxing Footwork
If you want to learn how to box, then good footwork is the beginning, the middle and the end.
Footwork is the word used to describe how we move around a boxing ring, being able to change position and approach depending upon what is needed to overcome a particular type of opponent. All of this whilst remaining perfectly balanced. This is not a simple and straightforward thing to do.
The key thing to remember about footwork is that it is not about dancing around the ring like an imitation of Ali. Sure, good footwork would allow this type of movement, but good footwork is more subtle than this. In fact, good footwork is just more than this!
Having effective footwork means that you can defend yourself at all times whilst remaining a potent attacking force. Without holding the stance correctly and using the right body mechanics at the right time, then your ability to hit and not be hit is dangerously limited.
It’s quite simple really, to learn how to box master your footwork. Continual practice of footwork skills is a non-negotiable part of boxing training.
