Tonight’s Skype session had my client reach the fourth hour of his course on Western Boxing. We are continuing work with the Philly Shell guard.
The lesson began with the step-jab and then the pendulum step footwork drills. This then progressed onto using the back-step for angling off, a movement that is particularly effective in Philly Shell attacks. We then combined them – move in and out with a combination, drawing the opponent forward from where we angled off and timed a hook at the same time. Time was also spent using the rear hand as a lead, which is another tactic that works well with this particular work. After technical work, we did 5 x 3 minute round with a final intensive 3 minute round.
