Classic Combinations (diary entry)


A returning client decided to focus on boxing for his first course back with me. We used the scaffolding of the peek-a-boo style, developed by Cus D’Amato and made famous by Floyd Patterson and Mike Tyson. With basic footwork, the peculiar slipping and ducking of the style confirmed, I introduced three combinations that we merged:

Sugar Ray Robinson’s body jab/right hook to the kidneys

Sugar Ray Robinson’s double jab/left hook

Jersey Joe Walcott’s shovel hook/overhand right

IMG_1415IMG_1413The first two made use of footwork, circling to the blind side and power hand respectively whereas the last one was more of a power move on the spot.
