In the video below, I’m outlining a solid way to think about the footwork that supports punching in combinations.
While the direction the foot is pointed is important, the implications of pointing the feet are much more so. This is true because the feet essentially open and close the hips and create the space (or lane) needed to rotate through each punch. This notion is firmly rooted in the broader concept of “platform synergy” – that is, how the feet, hips and shoulders cooperate during each movement. This is, in many ways, just like a dance.
