    Bob and Weave only for hooks?

    Can the bob and weave also be applied to the jab and cross or is it only effective against hooks? What is the best way to evade a jab and cross?

    I really don't think you should have boxing in your style field if you ask these kinds of questions.

    This question is bizarre. Bob and weave actually works better against straight punches like the Jab and Cross. There is almost no way you are actually training in boxing if you have to ask this.

    You must be referring to Bob Marley's weave which was indeed very effective against hooks and of almost entirely useless against jabs.


    Where do you train boxing?

    Maybe he's a noob. After all, this IS the basic section.

    Yeah, it can be used for jabs and crosses as well as hooks. However, I've found that slipping typically works better with straight punches, since the bob & weave is a bigger, slower movement that makes it easier for them to adjust and hit you despite your movement.

    Thanks that was the awnser i was looking for cause it didnt seem very practical to me to use bob and weave when someone is throwing a 1-2 at my face. But i find parrying easier then slipping, especially when in close slipping is almost impossible to do.

    It's all about the clinch. The clinch, I said.

    And it will seem easier for you to just cover since you're a beginner. Moving evasively and anticipating rather than simply covering up and weathering the storm is a skill you kind of grow into, and it's also inversely proportionate to how skilled your opponent is.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.

    Slipping and Bobbing and Weaving are the same thing. No reason to confuse the issue with extra jargon.

    "Bobbing and weaving is the art of slipping and sliding punches" p.23 of The International Boxing Hall of Fame's Basic Boxing Skills By Floyd Patterson.

    I wasn't complaining about the newbishness of the question I was complaining about the style field. I'm almost always complaining about the Style field or the empty location field. This website is an exception to the rest of the web in that we try to make sure that it is NOT anonymous.

    The whole purpose of slipping is to get past your opponents punch so you can get inside and counter punch. If you're slipping and staying at the end of your opponent's punches, you're missing the whole point.
