The first thing you are going to want to do is get in a wide stable stance, I’m want to
sit low with my knees slightly open not knock kneed. I’m going to lean slightly forward,
my left shoulder forward, my chin tucked down, my elbow in, palms facing my own face. Okay
as I lean forward I want to strengthening my arm out and put 60-80% of my weight to
my right leg. This is my first punch it is called the shift jab. For the cross which
is also a straight punch I’m going to fill my back shoulder, turn my right hip along
with right heel into the punch. Again the jab, the cross, jab, the cross, and for a
side view again our weight, low center of gravity, I shift my weight from 50-50 to 70-30.
The jab, the cross.
