Bob and Weave
Boxing • 1m 50s
The Bob and Weave is an evasive ducking tactic to get around an opponent’s Hook. Start in your Stance position, and imagine a line straight forward from your eye line. Lean to your dominant side, bending the knees then ducking below the line to the opposite side. Repeat this motion, ducking to the opposite side, and continue the movement back and forth. As you Bob and Weave, power the movement with your legs rather than moving from your waist. Your right leg will be straight as you come up to the left side, and the opposite as you duck to the right. Try moving to your right, moving around in 360° circles and taking a small step each time you Bob and Weave. Don’t let your guard stray away from your temples as you move in and out!
