    For me, shadowboxing isnít so much throwing combos one after another, as fighting an imaginary opponent. So Iím not just attacking, but defending and evading, constantly circling. Stitch attacks to blocks to develop counterpunching. Also I donít think there was a single body shot... Crash in and throw some left hooks to the liver.

    I think for where he's at, he should really be concentrating on the basics (jab, cross) and not worry about too much at once. Trying to do everything before you really have a solid idea of how to do things is naughty.

    In fact, I'd recommend he shadowbox using JUST his jab for a while

    My coach taught me to hook with my palm facing towards my face, and my arm parallel to the ground. The advantage being that the bicep supports the fist when your palm is facing your body, as opposed to the ground. I've tried both ways, and I find that the palm facing the body works much better than the alternative.
    My coach, trained/managed Eric Morel (undefeated super-fly-weight boxing champion), and the USA Olympic Boxing Team for at least one year, so keep that in mind. Our method works. Jones, dude, this is for reference, and just to put my two cents in.
    I'm really drunk right now, so I apologize if this isn't completely coherent.
    Cheers,
    Will

    I think it varies from coach to coach. My coach pwns your coach

    Also, for reference. Your uppercuts, from a boxing standpoint, look like ****. Bring 'em down to your hip and really whip those mothers. Remember, a right uppercut isn't all that different from a right cross, and a left uppercut isn't all that different from a left hook (the main difference is the arm movements, and the timing/effect). Also, extend your punches more. I'm no trainer, I need to see your feet, and more of your hips to comment further.

    boy, your advice on uppercuts is COMPLETELY contrary to all the teachings I've ever had on uppercuts from EVERY instructor I've had. Uppercuts come off the chin, like any other punch. Not from the hip.

    I'm not trying to discredit your coach by listing my coache's credentials. All's I'm saying is my coach is a damn fine boxing coach, and a damn fine person. I wouldn't say your coach "pwns" my coach or vice versa; they teach two completely different styles. Besides, how well you perform in a sport has little to do with how good of a trainer you are. I prefer to keep my palm facing my head.
    If my replies seem a bit delayed, it's cuz I'm on an especially BAD dial-up.
    Cheers,

    I have no idea why you're moving the way you're moving. There seems to be a disconnect between the techniques you're throwing out with your hands and your footwork. There are really only a few times, for example, when you coordinate forward movement with forward attacks, IMO. Think about when you would move backwards, to the side, etc. and coordinate your attacks accordingly.

    Watch counterpunchers like Roy Jones Jr. to see what they throw when they move in various directions, not to mention how they string combos together.

    You'll have to take this with a grain of salt, as I'm a shitty boxer, but these are my impressions.

    1. You need to REACH with your jabs. The reason coaches tell you to hit with the last 3 fingers is because you get a better reach that way.

    2. Stop turning your head on punches. This leaves you WIDE open for counters that you won't see coming which will result in a quick knock out.

    3. When you punch and elbow, step forward and turn your shoulder into it.

    4. You need to have a plan. Here you seem to be making up stuff as you go along. See 3-4 moves at a time. That way if you are able to you can fire off quick combos. Don't do the same combos over and over though.

    5. Use footwork and explosiveness. Use your strength. Get your heartbeat up. Fire right and left hooks back to back and work on getting back into position for the next hook as quick as possible.
