    Default Does side to side movement work?

    These days most trainers don't teach side to side footwork many have the idea that once you move out of range you have to work again to get that range back.
    Others believe that using side to side movement can actually get you hit while you're moving to the side plus you're off your feet.it seems more and more these days that it's about the clinch and the pivot.many of the greatest defense of fighters today and past haver never used the side to side footwork.
    What are your thoughts is side to side movement necessary in boxing or is it a fading fad?

    I study fights fights! What I was referring to was both feet leaving the ground... It could be said that side steps and pivots can be paired! Both feet leaving the ground simultaneously is side stepping.

    You are better off circling left and right than you are moving 'side-to-side.'

    What I meant NVSEMIN is that most side stepping including mayweather's is this.

    In the economy of movement and the conservation of energy circular footwork is taught first because 1.its easy to do. 2.goes with flow of movement making easier to conserve energy. The blow is not as hard, as like jumping into the hook.

    There is a time and a place for everything to work and there is a time and a place where they wont work.

    You raise a great point. If my man is ready to throw a left hook, deciding to circle that way might not be a good idea unless I'm planning to duck it. If I just slipped his jab though, or maybe I know I'm out of range, I'm as safe as I'm ever gonna be in the ring.

    But you've already lost the fight if you got ring cut off.it's almost always the case that the one who controls the center of the ring wins so with side to side movement you're almost guaranteed to stay on the periphery.

    If you dont move the feet with the head, you have to go back to where the movement started, to regain balance of your structure.
