    Default Proper boxing stance

    If youre a righty then you should stand with both legs bent about shoulder width apart. Don get much wider than youre shoulders. You should stand sideways with your jab shoulder pointed foward. This adds and inch or two to your reach and lets you put more power into your right hand by swinging the hip,heel, and shoulder foward. you should keep all of your weight on that back leg while keeping the front one slightly bent, this allows you to put your weight behind the punch when stepping into your jab and thowing the right hand all while keeping your head furthest awat from the action (although sometimes you really gotta get in there).
    Lastly you should point your toes in the direction youre striking.

    In most cases

    sideways, hands up, legs bent, weight back, toes forward

    Chin back and your distance is the back foot. when throwing the jab finish palm of fist down.The shoulder should be touching your chin,right shoulder pulled back to move left shoulder forward .From that position every thing goes tits up,everybody to a man,tries to make the distance from knuckle to chin longer.It cant be done, and thats why people 90% of the time get hit with counters by putting themselfs of balance and on the front foot.there isnt enough time spent working on this fundamental skill

    The one thing not to do is to put weight on your front foot when you jab in an effort to get longer arms to have a harder jab whatever. Once there on that front foot you are a target and cannot throw a right without roking back on the rear foot then coming forward again. Remember quartey? If you came to him....but if you stayed away he had trouble moving lose behind that hard jab and you can count all the "1-2"'s he'd throw in a fight on one hand, odd for such a prolific jabber. Towards the end T Norris got the same habit of perching way up on the front foot when he jabbed...
    Also, when hitting the bags etc...don't cheat your jab to favor your right. Get it all the way out- turning your shoulders as Scrap described or you'll forever be smothering your own punches

    i would also add...

    Elbows tucked and relaxed, not scrunched, stiff or chicken wings..

    Chin needs to be down, not back... Keeps your hands firing from your face...

    The same reason you should never have your shoulders squared off with your opponent. Leaving your opponent with as few targets as possible. If you have a good habit of keeping your chin down, chances are you have a less likely chance of getting popped on the "button" so to speak...

    It doesn't have to be forced just a comfortable tuck...

    *Reading your above posts when throwing your jab.... I think we are talking about the same thing, just wording it differently**

    Boxing with Chin down, affects eyesight, you are visually impaired.

    I see what your saying, i stood in position and noticed my chin isn't as far down as i originally thought....However, its not necessarily "back" either...It has a "slight" downward angle but not tucked by any means...

    Can you clarify a bit..??

    I think you got the right idea cnote, slightly down like during a nod is what you want. You can hold an orange with your chin, and your chin will be right where it needs to be.

    Scrap also mentioned in another post that it effects your breathing (which in turn affects your eyesight) if you have your chin down more that 15 degrees. Have you ever read a book in bed and put your chin onto your breast bone? It's uncomfortable and makes it harder to breath, think about bending a garden hose, less water gets through. You don't want to restrict your airways.
    If you hear a voice within you saying that I am not a painter, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.

    Nice one Chris, also what it does is give the punching muscles a response they should not have. Also dropping the chin puts strain on the lower back and groin area plus the shoulders, also putting the Head 6 inch nearer there glove and over the front knee. Not a good habit to get into

    Scrap my coach makes us point are toes at 12 o'clock with our feet at shoulder with apart and weight distribution is on the hind leg with the chin pulled back says it gives better lateral balance wouldn't it affect lateral balance with toes at 3 o'clock?

    This really good stuff scrap are you saying that weight distribution should remain on the rear leg during the jab with the chin tucked back?
