    Default Shoulders over hips?

    Saw this video on youtube emphasizing that the shoulders should be over (or in front of) the hips. I can see two ways of doing this
    1) Shoulder and weight forward over front knee which is a big NO-NO
    2) Stick your hips (arse) back.

    I never really though too much about my shoulder to hip position. Any thought on this video?

    One way not having seen the video. Is another way of looking at it, make sure your Ears are in line with the Coxxys, your centre of gravity.

    Hi Scrap,
    I want to ask you about something from a long time. How we can stay in balance when we go into crouch? For what we must be looking for?

    Theres qiute a few shifts, depending on where and what you want to achieve. Its all down to where you put the feet and why. Tell me more, its all about Levels, Depth and Distance.

    Lets say this two:
    The first one that is interesting for me is to slide under punches (like Rocky) on long distance and the second position is when i am over my left side (for orthodox) in a clinch position and i want to avoid some hooks

    This are some fast legs But what about the upper body movement. Here this boxer is leading the dance, but lets say someone catches you not prepared and throws at you lets say left right. For me the easyest escape will be to go under the left and weave inside to evade the right and to try to smuther the oder punches. As you say if we dont move the legs we will returnt at the same place... But in doing so there are alot of variables. For example how must my head be oriantated in relation to the earth, weight distribution and with wich muscles I move...

    Heres something, look how Carr makes Collins miss by His shifts and movement. Its what was worked on

    This was exactly what i was asking about. Why donĀ“t Carr take advantage when he makes Collins overreach? I must study it more carefully when I have more free time.
