A Boxing Drill – Simple Movement and Punching

I have said it before and I will say it again, simple works.

When developing boxing skills, even at the elite level, simple boxing drills are the staple of the ever growing, ever developing boxer.

This boxing drill helps combine footwork movement with punching.

Here’s the video:

Ensure that you show commitment in bringing this type of boxing drill to your training.

This boxing drill will bring bring benefits to the raw novice and the elite-level boxer.

My favourite part of the drill is that pivot combined with the lead hand uppercut, it’s really slick and smart.

Don’t forget and download your Beginner Boxer Toolkit (click the picture on the right).  There’s lots of info in there that will help you develop your boxing skills.

Questions and comments below please.

Cheers

Hi Fran another informative drill I’ve had a few working on this with some success along side many other ideas I’ve borrowed why reinvent the wheel do you have any other partner drills I could use for technical sparring? Cheers.

Same philosophy as me Andy. Will have a think on some tech sparring stuff. I tend to use lots of the drills on tech, more often we use blocking moves and counters.

Pivots are a big weakness of mine. I will be adding this drill to my training

Good man – this works really well Kenneth

That’s something I’d like to try at my club when the regular instructor isn’t around. Would these drills work well with Focus Pads held by a partner?

Reply

Fran September 28, 2017 at 6:43 pm

Yes Frank, having pads there would certainly work.

Why do you wait until after the pivot to throw the backhand hook but not the lead hook? Thanks.

Fran September 28, 2017 at 6:42 pm

You get extra power. The pivot with the back hand hook lands with more power AFTER. However, you can use it during. The pivot with the lead hand flows really well and allows you to deliver more shots after the hook (you are in the ‘safe’ zone). Make sense?

Great video Fran. It’s interesting what you say in it about the Eastern European method of going forward with the 1-2. But doesn’t that actually go against what you say in one of the Boxing Training Foundation drills about always throwing the backhand from a stationary position? So it’s okay to break that rule from time to time? I guess it’s good to have a bit of variation in your attacks and not always do the same thing.

Well spotted Frankie. yes it does, fact is this method is now being pushed to us coaches in the UK. I have mixed views and will continue to coach my original method but I am definitely using this approach also.

Variety is the spice of life 🙂

Cheers Fran. I guess there’s no harm in having both methods in your boxing arsenal, it’d make you a more complete and versatile fighter.

Brilliant as ever Fran!

Will add these into my workout. Have been caught on the wrong end of pivots too many times in sparring so I really need to get my own going.

Thanks for all your help.

No worries Robin, thanks for the feedback pal

Fran September 28, 2017 at 6:40 pm

Keep working this stuff Helena, it will become habit.

Macro movement. Great way to boost development from practicing a single technique from a static position. Consider it stolen. Thanks Fran.

No worries Pug

I think you will REALLY enjoy the next one – straight from the Eastern European model 🙂
