Boxing is not just about hands and arms. Being able to move rapidly and economically balanced and ready is BASIC. And that demand FOOT WORK.
Yu always have a lead foot which initiates the movement and opens your stance.
After the lead foot has taken the first step, close the distance with the other foot.Steps are usually short and close to the surface of the floor.
Moving forward – The lead foot steps first and then the back foot follows equaling the distance.
Steps are small.
When moving backwards, back foot moves first followed by the front one.
Moving to the side – Left leads left and right leads right.
Maintain the integrity of the stance aka you should never step, cross over or bring your feet together.
