Beginner Boxing Lessons : Left Jab, Straight Right, Straight Left: Boxing Lessons


The next combination we’re going to work on
our introductory boxing lesson – I teach all the new students a left-right-left. We call
it a “1-2-3”. What I try to instill upon them is that as you step in and throw your first
punch, okay, you’re throwing your second punch you’re turning your body, the right hand doesn’t
have to be 100% of your power. You’re merely turning your body so that you can get the
second left jab turned with your body, and then you can deliver a much more powerful
left jab. But what I also want is rather than big, open wide, looping punches, we want to
try to keep everything nice and tight, so that you’re firing from the center of your
shoulders, you’re firing from the center of your body. That way your punches are nice
and tight. You’re firing from your cheek, you’re firing from you chin. Everything is
nice and tight. So what I like to do is, I have a coat hanger. What I tell the individuals,
Nick if you could step over…what I try to say is, “Okay new student, go ahead and slowly
hit the dead center of that coat hanger on that target three times with a left-right-left.”
Okay. That’s pretty easy to do because basically that’s just a small target, and the coat hanger
is flushed up against the bag. But what I want to do now is, is as I move the coat hanger
out to about halfway, what I want to make sure is that they’re also not hitting the
outside of this coat hanger, like Nick was showing. If you’re too looping, you’re going
to hit the outside of the coat hanger, and that’s what we don’t want. Now he’s going
to do it in slow-motion. He’s going to hit all three punches. Halfway to the target he’s
going to still be on target by hitting halfway through this coat hanger. Okay, Nick? 1-2-3.
See now we’ve got all three punches going through the coat hanger right to the target.
Try it again, Nick. Slow motion. And that’s what we want is nice, straight punches. So
Nick, go ahead and try that on the heavy bag. That’s great. There we have the 1-2-3, left-right-left.
All nice and tight. All nice and long punches. We’ll look at hooks later on. Thank you.

  1. i cant throw right jabs hard wat should i do like my right punch and my left punch look so different

  2. Well. Thats him punching with his fragile knuckles. Not everyone does that. Let him break his hand and he'll see.

  3. At least this dude's better than the Kickboxing Bitch with the roundkick with the Blade of the foot. LMAO that Girls Retarded

  4. This guy's nothing.. I thought these were LESSONS?

    Expertvillage, i'm 12, and here's a lesson for you.

    "you're firing from your cheek, firing from your chin"
    NO!!! NEVER!!!
    THIS IS A DISASTER, EXPERTVILLAGE.

    YOU THROW FROM YOUR FUCKING HIPS AND YOUR LEGS, YOU DON'T THROW FROM YOUR FACE OR ANYTHING UPPER-BODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. @elmoskater A short 12 yr-old.
    And I know you don't do boxing. Boxing enforces discipline, that's THE FUNDAMENTAL of boxing…
    You obviously have no discipline, so you're a street fighter. Not a boxer.
    Good day.

  6. @elmoskater That's how I know you don't box.
    Boxers aren't street fighters.

    Boxers join a gym, and Street fighters join a gang.

  7. The combo is not the 123that he is throwing,it's the 121 combo but it's too sloppy lunging forward leaving himself off balance to get easily countered.

  8. OK so you "dont" want to throw full power in the straight, but you "do" want to put full power into the jab?
    Anyone who thinks a jab-straight-jab is a 123 doesn't know what they're talking about.
    And who works out in jeans anyway?

  9. Shame his mum didn't use the coathanger when she got pregnant with this douche. That way we wouldn't see bullshit boxing on youtube. I think the only real jabbing this fuckstick does is rectum jabbing when his cousin comes over.

  10. @binod1322 I dont want to sound bad but how is something somebody's passion if you dont do it. You said your mom wont let you. Somebody's passion is something day spend night and day on. Just saying….

  11. @binod1322 tell your mother u can learn without actually fighting. A lot of places offer instruction and heavybag workouts. Although sparring is the best place to learn.

  12. It's the way of controled breathing, in order to develop greater power and supply your muscles with optimum amount of oxygen, thus keeping your heart muscle in good shape and protecting it from exortion-induced damages. In any sport (fighting sports especialy) you always want to exhale explosively at the hardset part of exercize, and inhale as deep as you can at the easier part, when muscles are relaxing.

  13. What sound effect's… do you mean his breathing in/out while punching? That believe it or not makes the punches harder dumb ass.

  14. im a beginner thanks for your time i have a membership to boxing gym but lessons cost money and i have limited time with a trainer again thanks

  15. This almost-magical fat melting strategy loses weight faster than any powders, pills, or potions. Go and google Fat Blast Formula to find out more.

  16. Thank you so much for your videos, I've been desperate to find some good technique drills that can be checked easily and these are amazing – just wish my boxing classes would focus more on technique and drills than cardio fitness training!

  17. Well, I'm doing basic mma and I am told to breath properly, sometimes it is hard to breathe properly on match because so many things going on, so my coach said to make a sound while punching to remind me of breathing properly :v

  18. When he jabs he better make sure he covers his chin aswell an better bend his legs a bit..plus punch must extent well….to give full power and yes get his body turns with punch full power.

  19. 0:44 that part ,fighting through the center of the body, I thought you might be telling us wing chun technique in boxing.
