1189 views - I consider the following boxing footwork drill to be something that an intermediate to advanced boxer should build into the skill set. If you are a regular visitor to the site, and especially if you are a member of The Boxing Training Foundation, you will know that I am pretty fanatical about boxing footwork drills. My years of experience have taught me that they work like a charm and this drill is no different in it’s effectiveness. When we talk about switching the stance in boxing, most people think purely about switching from orthodox to southpaw and vice versa. That is of course the most obvious stance switch and I will cover it in this video (well I will cover one method of doing it, as with most things in this wonderful world of boxing there are many ways to switch southpaw to orthodox.) The boxing stance switch that I am going to demonstrate in the video is a very specific type of stance switch – it is a stance switch that is designed specifically for setting up massive hooks and uppercuts. After watching this video and working the drill yourself you will be switching and hitting in Mike Tyson style in no time at all I will demonstrate two stance switches: Orthodox to Orthodox Orthodox to Southpaw Please post any questions or comments below the article. By the way, the video is 15 minutes long. I know this is a bit lengthy, but I wanted to make sure I got the right level of detail for you
