http://www.myboxingcoach.com - Uppercuts are the most technically challenging boxing techniques (punching) that a boxer uses. Uppercuts are thrown relatively rarely in comparison to other punches because of the technical difficulty associated with landing the shot and because it carries with it a higher degree of risk than many other shots. By examining and understanding the elements of the mid-range right uppercut shown in this video, you will be able to deploy the uppercut in the correct circumstances and maximise the impact of the shot when it lands.
A key point to note is that any uppercut has to take a vertical trajectory in order to be described as an uppercut. The intention of the shot is to travel through the guarding arms of the opponent to land underneath the chin. If the shot deviates from the vertical, it is likely to be deflected harmlessly away by the guarding arms. In order to enable the vertical trajectory of the uppercut, the body has to make very considerable efforts in terms of drive and rotation; be sure to closely examine the mechanics of the shot described below and within the video.
Finally, in the video presentation, I am guilty of leaving the hand on the target for too long (although my reasons are genuine in that I am attempting to emphasise the vertical position of the arm). As with all other punches, get your hand back to the guard position immediately! For more information, visit http://www.myboxingcoach.com/punching...
