Shouldn’t the left foot be in line with the the white line ? It looks like it limits the pivoting.

@mastermation ahmm yeah!! u have to box without BODY LANGUAGE! thats whats my trainer told me!! and u cant jsut throw the lead right when u in the mood.. u have to wait for the right moment!! like catching the guy out of balance!!

@espfit its fucking dangerous to throw a ” lead right hand” or ” lead left hook”.. when i throw a ” lead right Hand ” i first try to catch the guy out of balance! somethimes it goes wrong. LOL but most of the time i can land it!

This guy is a great trainer and watching these always brings me back to earth on how much I need to focus on basics. 🙂

Sometimes you have bad days or a week where you don’t understand what you are doing wrong … maybe lacking power, speed, timing, accuracy? Go back to the basics, maybe you got too cocky, trying to do too much, and you’re not throwing these basics correctly.

@TripleNipple3 well it depends f ur a southpaw

I do Krav Maga. But I also want to focus on the basics. Boxing – Muay Thai. Thats where I want to get real pro knowledge. In the end I want to improve my ground work by focusing on Brasilian JJ.
Thank you very much. You feel from the 1. second on that this is not just bla bla by a beginning amateur who wants to be broadcasted in a video.

I’m not a beginner but this video is a great example of a perfect right hand technique tutorial. For boxers and kickboxers it’s always important to go back to some basics from now and then.

The lead right “just like most punches” is all timing?

guitaristavista March 23, 2011 at 3:10 pm

this guy is a freakin legendary coach–Im no expert though, so perhaps he’s average/typical?


go4john March 23, 2011 at 3:11 pm

This guy is on TSN and is a poor commentator who pushes his voice.

A right hook is not one of the four basic boxing punches because it is sloppy, and easy to counter. At my level coaches usually urge their boxers to avoid using them. But that being said, a right hook is a punch thrown with the right arm bent at a 90 degree angle, and the right foot pivots and the body rotates and the right hand comes straight across into the target from outside their guard. If you were implying I was wrong about the right cross, its a variation of the straight right.


Reisekaiser March 23, 2011 at 5:02 pm

how would you describe a right hook then?


TripleNipple3 March 23, 2011 at 5:57 pm

The right cross come across the opponents face in more of a semi circular “slashing” motion and comes from outside the opponents guard like an overhand right would, and it ends up across your body so your hand is by your left shoulder which is why its a cross because ti comes across. The straight right is just straight and comes up between the opponents guard


RHurricanez March 23, 2011 at 6:18 pm

whats the difference?


TripleNipple3 March 23, 2011 at 6:18 pm

This is good technique he should get one of the right cross up too. Its actually quite different from the straight right.


TripleNipple3 March 23, 2011 at 6:26 pm

More importantly, the wide stance provides a solid base to get extra power behind your straight right and left hook. It will greatly decrease your mobility though. Also it’s good for balance, if you get hit with something big you have a better chace of staying on your feet. The wide stance allows him to plant his feet and throw solid punches. Also he has spot-on technique and never gets sloppy. Technique makes for alot of power. The old saying is “power from the ground”.
