Boxing Training Q/A: Best Footwork Drills?
Coach Rob, what are the best basic footwork drills to get a boxer into proper mobility to move? Thank you, Kennedy.
Kennedy, Use the box drill to teach basic footwork. Boxing starts from the ground up and punching stance and footwork must NOT be overlooked. It must be perfected so offense and defense can flow from proper stance. This drill will teach the fighter how to move without breaking punching stance. It will also teach them balance and rhythm. In my opinion, this is the first thing a fighter should start with when they are new. Fighters of all levels can come back to this drill to sharpen their footwork.
Here is a video clip on the box drill to help you.
