    training for the uppercut?

    Any training tips on the uppercut? I've been trying it mix it in during sparring sessions but I can't manage to get enough power (when striking the midsection) or enough speed to land a blow (when aiming for the chin). It somehow seems unnatural to me. Is it even a useful punch, or has hollywood brainwashed me? I use a fairly orthodox right-foward boxing stance btw. Feel free to flame me.

    go and watch some of tysons fights is probably the best advice i can give you. pay VERY close attention to what he is doing with his feet and shoulders. and yes it is a very useful punch, my broken nose can verify you on that one

    I don't think you can have a stance that is both orthodox and right foot forward...

    You can't just throw an uppercut... it needs to be properly set up, you have to get your body in position, and it's more effective as part of a combo.
    Try throwwing lead hook/rear uppercut combo with rear leg (right) slightly withdrawn. That's how it works best for me, mechanically. The balance and everything just seems better following a hook.
    I used to struggle throwing it, but I was thinking of it as a single technique, rather than the coup de grace in a combo.
    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    Is that a lead hand uppercut I spy there?
    Sweet... I could only ever land those defensively.

    Yeah. If your right foot is foward, it's not orthodox. It's southpaw.

    It's easy to land an uppercut however you want when your opponent is turtling up.
