Left vs. Right Foot Slips

Most streaming issues can be resolved by installing the most recent version of Flash, which can be found by Clicking Here. Even if your browser THINKS that flash is updated, update it anyway. As a last resort, use the following video 🙁 which will play on anything, but costs me a lot more $) :-/

I had a lot of people that had no clue what I was talking about when I said “Slips to the Left on your Left Foot” so I made this video to clarify exactly what I want.

      I would probably execute a ‘straight slip’ step with my right foot, trying to get maybe 6-8 inches outside of his front (left) foot, and fire the cross simultaneously. So, you’d be moving slightly to the right in conjunction with your cross. Usually, when I do this, I just drop it as a ‘one and done’, but if you want to fire more stuff, like a right hook to the body, you would bring your entire base with you (both left and right steps). For just the cross counter, only the front foot moving in, and then directly back is necessary! Let me know if this makes sense!

    Why right foot versus left? does right foot take you away from opponent and the left close the distance?

      Sometimes you want to move to the right, and sometimes you want to move to the left.

      …or forwards vs. backwards as you have so astutely mentioned!

    For this drill, are you supposed to keep the left leg forward the whole time while stepping forwards and backwards, or are you supposed to switch stances?

      Maintain your normal foot relationship… you do not need to switch stances!
