    Hands drop down before punching

    So my coach says that when I'm training, my hands drop down before I punch, which can telegraph my moves and leave me wide open. Problem is that I don't even see or feel it happening. How do I stop my hands from dropping down?

    Shadow box in front of a mirror and watch what your hands do. And just keep training.

    Also helps to be patient. It appears you're relatively green. Sometimes **** takes time to set in. Shadow box in front of a mirror as was already said, and while hitting the bag think about that ****. And imagine a ************'s leader coming towards you to **** your day up if your hands drop. Keep them motherfuckers up, son.

    Dude coaching me has an annoying but sage mantra "Gloves glued to your face". I'm slow as but always have 16 ozs touching on my face unless hitting. That and ^^^ shadow and the mirror stuff.

    Without seeing you working the bag or sparring, I am having to take a stab in the dark here. My guess, is that you are trying to load up on the punches with a kill, kill, kill mindset. Relax andlet the power happen. I say this, as anytime I have one of my fighters dropping their hands, it is usually them trying to load up on the power. I may be wrong(wouldn't be the first time), but this is usually what is causing my guys to drop their hands.

    If you want to correct this quickly, ask a (seasoned) guy to semi spar with you, he may only counter punch, and you lead with single punches. If you start to drop them, he will capitalize quickly, and you will learn to keep one of your hands up, your chin down, and your punches will go strait. An advance state in boxing is to punch through punches, to do that you need a better stance than your opponent (and some practice). Also: As said, shadow box in front of a mirror, punch a heavy bag with just the left while your right holds a tennis ball etc. And of course just train a lot.

    My coach taught me to keep my hands up and chin tucked by jabbing me every time I dropped them. I was suffering from the Tae Kwon Do Effect when I began learning to box (I'm still learning), and kept my hands at waist-level.

    some people can learn from watching, most can't, and the surest way to teach someone to protect themselves is to give them ample reason. It also serves to refine the technique. It can be just a light tap on the forehead, done enough times, it will cause the noob to want to stop it.

    Your hands also should feel higher than you are totaly comfortable with.

    Your hands pretty much think the can go in line with your shoulder and then punch out because that makes an anatomical triangle.

    Your head has other ideas
