Boxing Defences: The Slip

The most important element here is constant and close observation. You must pay attention to the specific patterns of your opponent and in that way you can try to predict where and when he is going to try to strike you. You have to move out of the way the very moment your opponent throws a punch. Nevertheless, make sure that this movement is just enough to allow you to dodge the strike because If you dodge not far enough or too far, your move will not be that effective and you will be left open to different attacking strikes. Also you have to remember never to return your head to its initial position before starting this movement, because this can lead to a knockout. As an alternative, change the position of your feet in order to match the new position of your head. When you apply the slip, avoid all movements that might throw you off balance since balance in boxing, as in life, is very important.
