Boxing Training – Basic Defense Moves

Slipping – rotate your body just slightly so that punch misses your head. Sharply rotate your hips and shoulders when the punch comes at you. This will turn your chin sideways and allow their punch to “slip” past, hence the name.

To “sway” or “fade” is when you move your upper body or head back so that your opponents punch will miss, or be greatly weaker in strength. You must be able to see the punch before it comes. Also called “rolling with the punch” or “riding the punch”.

Break or Duck; drop down keeping your back straight making the punch miss entirely, or at least glancing off.
