http://www.myboxingcoach.com - A Boxing How To Guide - Boxing footwork, rather unsurprisingly, involves using the feet to move in given directions, an aspect of which being moving forward and backward or more commonly described as 'moving in and out'. Boxing footwork in the main involves some relatively simple physical movements in order to enable movement in and out of range but this simplicity is should not indicate that we are not dealing with some extremely important boxing techniques.
So, much of boxing relates to understanding your position in relation to your opponent, and we define this as "range." A boxer can consider from the outset that he or she will be 'in range' (both for your shots to go but also for the opponent's shots to land on you) or 'out of range'. When the boxer is in range, this can be broken down further into short, medium and long range.
Having explained range, we should also understand that successful boxing relies on the ability to be 'on the edge of range', meaning that you are only very slightly beyond the range of your opponent's punches. This means that the boxer is able, with boxing footwork comprising short and explosive movements of the feet, to get within range, land effective shots and move out again before the inevitable response from the opponent. Being on the edge of range and providing that threat of mobility is a method of applying pressure to an opponent and enabling control of the contest.
