Boxing and Kickboxing for MMA – Slipping punches

Of all the different types of head movement slipping is the fastest and works very well to avoid straight, fast punches. It also aids in adding momentum to your lateral movements Slipping left and right will not help if your opponent is throwing looping punches like hooks or over hands and also they are no good for countering with power because you don’t build up any torque.  They are, however, fundamental to the jab game and keeping the head moving as you change angles.
The elements to the slip are:
1. “Slip with the hip” shoot your hip out to the left to move you head right and vice-versa.
2. When countering allow your opponent to come to you by a slight pause, then slip and counter. 3. Stay forward of your hips with your head.
