The pain and pleasure of slipping

Mike and I were working on slipping punches today, which we've not done in a long time, and it made me realize a couple of things:

  1. Slipping properly means shifting your weight over the lead leg, or dropping your weight 50/50 and means assuming almost a wrestling stance, but facing sideways, depending on whether you're slipping inside or outside of the punch. It hurts! I'm not used to that kind of squatting! Jeesh!

  2. I've always loved simultaneous counters, including stop-hits, or making someone miss and countering. I'm going to do it more...
