    Another good drill is letting him jab the pad, and hit him on the side of the head with the other mitt. This requires that he doesn't hit the mitts cross wise like normal. So his (left) jab will hit the pad holders right hand, and padholder strikes to the side of the head at the same time.
    If he doesn't keep his hand up while he strikes, he gets smacked.
    Same can be done with crosses and hooks.

    Yes, this is a good drill. You can do the same sort of thing with a heavy bag workout, just have one guy stand behind the bag and throw looping hooks.

    I try to have the glove against my cheek or chin during the punch, but actually TOUCHING your face is a little too close. Still, it basically cured me. I've heard of people being told to bite the thumbs of their gloves when not punching.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    When I have my gloves that close to my face I tend not to be able to see things coming. I seem to do best when I keep my gloves just close enough to where I can bring them back to my head to cover as needed.

    I tend to do best when watching from the stands. That way I have perfect visibility and zero percent chance of being hit.

    Though this one time this guy bumped into me and it hurt real bad. I needed like... two band aids.

    Touching your face seems to be a good approach since you can feel the contact and know where your hand is. If you don't touch your face your hand will still have the tendency to drift off. I tell people to touch the face until they get used to it. After correcting the habit its not necessary to touch the face anymore.

    Another approach I've seen is to touch the side of the forehead. Does anyone else do this? This advice came from a damn good fighter so I'm not going to dispute it.

    There is also the school of thought from people that focus on footwork and positioning. For people that are good in this area, dropping the hand won't be as much of a concern. The idea is to not be there to get hit as opposed to blocking an attack.

    I think Tito Ortiz used that technique to help his fighters (specifically Mark Hamill, IIRC) in TUF.
    He demonstrated it using a basketball between shoulder and wrist, but he does have a gargantuan melon for a skull.

    I got into a habit of doing this to the point where I did it before and after every hand technique. Telegraph much? The only good thing was I started using it as a fake after I worked out why I was getting slapped around so much.
    I now try and keep my hands up, but pretty stationary.

    Currently I'm working on keeping the hand up.. suceeding mostly. Its generally on big dedicated punches that I do that.
