Counter-Punching & Boxing Defense : Circling Away from Opponents in Boxing


The next area we’re going to cover is actually
circling away from your opponent’s jab and your opponent’s power hand. In the case of
two right-handed boxers, if my opponent is throwing a left jab at me, what I’m going
to try to do is I’m going to circle away from that left jab so hopefully it goes harmlessly
by me. You don’t actually counter-punch and then return a punch in that case, but you’re
trying to stay out of his jab. Always try to stay one step away from that jab. Once
they’ve committed to the jab and you’re slipping to that side of it, then you can later counter-punch.
But as long as you’re frustrating in him and stepping away from his jab, circling to the
outside, you won’t get hit with so many power hands, you won’t get hit with so many jabs.
So Nick is going to help me here, and we’re going to work on stepping to the outside of
your opponent’s jab, and then the resulting power hand behind it. Okay, Nick? Now just to add a little bit of
emphasis to that, what we’re going to have Nick to do this time is to step into the jab
and power hand, and watch what happens.
There we go. Step away from the jab and the resulting power hand.

  1. @FightersOnlyMagazine I think he's just exaggerating the movement, so you can see clearly what is going on, or something like that. Theres probably a better way to teach it though

  2. What they're saying is good but the demonstration is kind of bad. And it seems like the coach is purposely trying to miss his 1, 2 punches to show the effectiveness. And the other guy should constantly take baby steps to the side and not stand still until the punch comes.

  3. do you have any video on how to circle to your left? (into your oponent´s strong hand) I can´t find any tips on that, anywhere
