    Boxing Footwork drills (solo)

    Wai Hello Thar good countrymein,

    As the title suggests, I'm looking for any footwork drills/exercises that you find helpful, particularly for solo training as I want to brush up on my footwork alittle, and since we have so many experianced members this could get quite interesting.

    Videos/Diagrams + Explanation would be nice, any commentry on how the drills helped, if possible, would also be cool.

    Tie a rope at shoulder height across a room. Stand with the rope resting on your right shoulder. Then quickly duck under the rope, come up on the other side so the rope touches your left shoulder and throw a punch (uppercut, hook, etc.)

    Now that you are standing with the rope on your left shoulder, duck under and come up on the right and throw a punch. Each time you duck under come forward a bit. alternate left and right untill you are out of room. Turn around and repeat. It's great for bobbing and weaving.

    Do not simply lower your head to get under; focus on bending your knees and lowering your shoulders and hips, then explode upward with the punch.

    rinse and repeat.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Can't go wrong with shadow boxing.

    There's also a drill that involves chalking a pattern on the floor and dancing in that (a bit like hop scotch, although I think the pattern was concentric circles). I've never used it so I don't have exact details, I just remember seeing some guys do it at my old club when the coach was away (this was a decade ago...). Maybe someone else knows more about it.

    While shadow boxing always facing your mirror create a pattern moving (shuffling feet with punches) backwards, towards the mirror and diagonally both ways.

    This will give you a better relationship between your hands and feet.

    Isn't there some sort of training in boxing where they hop on car tires? Or is that muay thai?

    You're thinking of football. Yeah, they do that at thai camps.

    Well, what do you already know?

    There's a lot of **** out there, and coming up with Videos/Diagrams + Explanations for stuff is like... work... which is what I'm avoiding when I'm on here.
