Philly Shell Movement Patterns (diary entry)

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.
