The more deceiving you are in the ring, the better chances you have of landing your shots. Check out what Boxing Coach Joe Vargas has to say about how to hide your intentions to land more punches.
Coach Joe Vargas:
Hi, my name is Joe Vargas. I’m one of the head of boxing coaches here at The Arena. Today’s tip of the week is going to be how to hide your intentions on landing the shot that you’re looking for. What you don’t want to do is when you come here, automatically, Alex is going to know there’s a problem here. He’s going to either block or he’s going to counter me with the hook. So, by me dipping my head down like this, it shows my intention to land this body shot. Throw left hook, soft. I can get clipped, and I can land the shot.
What you want to do is you want to stand in front of him and I want to hide my intentions. I’ll put a hand here. I’ll put a hand here, and without dipping my head, I will just turn that hook in. And that’s how you sneak in a left hook to the body. The more deceiving you are in the ring, the better chances you have of landing your shots. And that’s your tip of the week today.
