    Boxing footwork question

    I recently switched foxing coaches and there's something about the way he wants us to footwork I was curious about.

    My original coach had us move around with the back foot with the front the back one moving around. The new coach it's the opposite. He has the back foot pivot and the front foot move.

    I was wondering if there is some practicality to this and whether both can be correct for boxing.

    Is this for a specific drill, or in general?

    It was during a drill he had us do this, but I think that's how he wants us to move. He only had us do it during a mitt exercise. we had to pivot around on the back foot and throw a jab as he moved around the ring.

    I bet he'll pivot on the other foot during another drill. There's plenty of ways to move in boxing. Don't worry about it.

    I really didn't understand the question as it was worded oddly and your "Meez" is quite distracting

    At your gym, do you box over the front foot, or keep the majority of your weight on the back foot?

    It may be that your new coach teaches his guys to fight with different weight distribution than the previous one did.

    Basically, I meant when we moved originally, the front foot (left in my case) stayed planted and pivoted around, while the back foot (right in my case) was used to move myself around the ring. With the new coach it's the opposite. The back foot pivots instead.

    Weight is on the back foot until we move forward. Then as we jab the weight is shifted to the front and both hips rotate forward for power.

    Karrito,

    I might have misunderstood your description, but one sounds like a primarily defensive way of moving, and the other more natural (for me).

    Could it just be a difference in their styles? I've found most boxers are fairly idiosyncratic; they have their little ways.
    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    What is the striking style of your first coach vs. your new coach?

    Is one a traditional boxer and the other a puncher?
    Does one preach counterpunching and the other aggression?

    Really at some point, with both styles you will have equal weight distribution and transference for power.
    I think it will factor in for power and/or movement.

    But let me ask YOU:

    what style is preferred by YOU?

    do you notice any increase/decrease in POWER?

    do you notice any increase/decrease in MOBILITY?
