http://www.myboxingcoach.com to learn how to box - Uppercuts are technically the most difficult shots to master when learning how to box. If we look at the two mid-range uppercuts, the right uppercut (back hand) involves more actions for the body to undertake and as such is more difficult. This said, the mid-range left uppercut is still a challenge, in particular because it requires a modified rotation of the hips, unlike that described in the other shots covered such as the right cross , mid-range left hook or mid-range right hook .

As with the mid-range left hook , the mid-range left uppercut is not in isolation a 'power' shot, it is more appropriately described as a scoring shot or a set-up shot for other power shots (e.g. as a pre-cursor to a right cross ). To generate true power in the shot, it should follow one of the other boxing techniques that provides extra leverage, for example an inside slip or a mid-range right hook .

When learning the mechanics, ensure that you keep an eye on the trajectory of the shot. Don't let the left hand drop too low as the shot goes, otherwise you could be on the very wrong end of a big right hook coming back the other way! Boxers always look good when they land a well placed uppercut, it's a shot for the purists. Master this shot and other shots from our range of boxing techniques will come easy!
