Thanks a lot i am really apritiating your help the trainers that i had couldnt help me whith that. I feel more stable and find it easier to defend in southpaw, but my jab feels very awkward compared to my orthodox jab, and seems slower, but actually is easier to turn the punch over. I’m right handed but more cofortable fighting right front.
Its hard to fight orthodox so i fight southpaw and im right handed . In other cases, it is so that they can shoot for a stronger takedown. A clinch is teh gay. Also kickers are commonly switching stances to create openings on one side or the other.
Don’t know if you’ll see this but ill reply regardless, You need to disable their arms if they’re going for a grapple takedown. Balance up and mix it up. Much later, boxers started switching their stances trying to confuse their opponent. Should i continue using the orthodox stance or adapt to southpaw? I’m right eye dominate , but i have Amblyopia on my left eye, especially when im low on sleep.
I just started taking boxing classes.
Southpaw are difficult to fight and they punch from crazy angles.
I would keep working from orthodox position and develop more skillsets from there.
But in punching, in all fighting speed is essential. His best power punch was the “left hookercut” an best kick was the left high kick. Because I am small, and fast, it means I can generate a surprising number of force. hi johny.
Instead of shifting weight from one leg to the other, keep it more towards the middle.
You need to be able to fight both right and left handed.
You can decide whatever you want but my recommendation stays the same.
Then you have the left-handed orthodox fighters – De La Hoya, Tyson, possibly Frazier, Kessler, Cotto. i am going through a phase of doubting my stance…. Because your arms are raised, and not positioned elsewhere which might generate torque, they are actually weaker by being raised. From what you’re explaining, it makes more sense that you fight as orthodox. For me, I fight for realistic situation. Right forward feels incredibly awkward.
It’s such a big punch and leaves you open to counter straights, hooks, and uppercuts when you throw it. Vous pouvez modifier vos choix à tout moment dans vos paramètres de vie privée. Should I maybe give the southpaw approach a try? What do i do? Tough decisionI have a hard time finding out which stance to take.
Watch the early rounds Williams vs. Cintron. 1) Don’t worry about the eye dominance so much. Will training orthodox eventually make it feel more natural, or should I just fight southpaw? Left-handed > southpaw. What matters is having good power when you need it most and BEING COMPETITIVE.
Which eye has the finger lined up depends on which hand I use. Boxers / kickboxers are always going forward. What concerns me is that if I switch to southpaw now I will have to train my left cross from scratch. It’s more common than you think. Nothing feels right when you’re a beginner.
There are some professional boxers that stand with their strong arm in front. Im right handed and i trained as a southpow for two years, freind of mine convinsed Me to switch to orthodox so i did that stalk to it for two and halv years but sticking to orthodox gave Me a lot of pain in my lower back resantly however i switched back to southpow and my back pain just disapired .
I am right LEG dominant, so standing orthodox feels much more comfortable, however I am left HAND dominant, so my coach told me to keep my left hand back. Using a self-defence style could greatly improve your performance as no one martial art of fighting style is the best and you must incorporate a lot of other pieces fitting to your specific fighter requirements , e.g.
Some of them are right-handed. Why don’t boxers train equally in both stances? My left is pretty strong I guess since I knocked someone down with it. Hi Johnny, i read your article and im having problems deciding between southpaw or orthodox. You should be working on your form and perfecting your offense and defense from one stance first. If your head is leaning towards once place you will be off-balanced in that direction.
@Mikey – You can lead with the right here and there when it’s unexpected. ( during these 4 months i have made a remarkable progress and i am doing very well..my trainer said that i will be a great boxer if train hard) please tell me your opinion about the stances…if i it’s not a problem to start practising southpaw stance too. My advice remains the same. Learn how to shadowbox and move around in a balanced stance. In a same side match-up like orthodox-vs-orthodox or southpaw-vs-southpaw you have to work harder because both of you are kind of turned away from the other fighter.
With an injured hand, I wouldn’t recommend any stance, or even fighting at all.
Feel around for it, you’ll find it.
Please advise . So stick to southpaw and keep working on that jab. As far as the question about MMA goes: I think part of that is because MMA fighters are light on their feet. Maybe kicks add a difference to the best stance for me?
My boxing style is a lot like Pacquiao, I’m very fast and unorthodox and aggresive, so I was wondering if the southpaw stance would be better for a guy who is very fast and unorthodox like me? Very very easy to counter if you see it coming. I wanted to have as many weapons as possible and a deadly overhand. Also what about the hooks? . If you have a great left arm, excellent, use it to jab.
If he goes southpaw, fight him like he’s southpaw. I don’t understand why I shouldn’t fight southpaw with my stronger limbs forward. My problem is that i know that the stronger arm is supposed to be in the back. The problem with the leading right is that it can be easily countered.
Additionally, though it protects the face, take a good look at how many vitals are still open, and are actually now vulnerable in your fighting position.
So basically, strong right arm, but (very) weak right eye. what would that imply? I will do that! My right hand is a little stronger then my left. The left handed shots from behind definitely have power but they feel weird and they have a ton more speed than if i was fighting orthodox.
Do the exact opposite if you are left-handed.
Hey Johnny, been interested in getting into boxing for a while and found your site. 2) “Southpaws weak under pressure”. I read about the advantages and disadvantages that come with beeing a southpaw.Only one thing is clear: My right cross seems to be better than my right jab. I`ve didn`t even think this was unnatural, but i always felt i didn`t connect or hit hard with my back hand (right hand) It feels like i hit just as hard with my left hook as my right hook, in orthodox stances. This nonsense destroys a boxer’s balance, footwork, and mobility. Especially when it’s something challenging. Then I prefer the southpaw stance. I am not a box, nor have I officially started any serious training, but I have been getting some basics while warming up/sparring with a buddy of mine who does train boxing. Which saves the strong arm for the truly heavy punches from the rear. As they stepping into it, and you technically could have been cocking for a strike, or well, anything to dodge their assault, it is on them for not having had the control to stop and not whack themselves on it.
Want your own comment image? For the record, balance is almost always better than power. However much angle you use to turn that forearm as you connect with their punch to move it is how much what was once in a straight line toward you will be going. Then when we sparred, I did noticed that his left hand too is strong. It’s not just about power, it’s about accuracy, efficiency of movement, balance, equality of effectiveness with both hands, whichever one it is…use that one.
Hi there When some time ago the coach asked me about my dominant hand i wasnt really sure.
So it’s better to put that stronger more accurate left hand in the back.
Ultimately, I’m advocating two things: 1) Don’t stand with your strong hand in front unless you’re absolutely dedicating yourself to developing the weaker hand. But since most people are right handed, when I throw a right jab they can counter it with a straight right or right hook. Thanks to his skill he was able to make adjustments and turn the fight around. However, keeping my shoulder bursitis in mind, I think it would prolong my life as a boxer if I began training as a southpaw fighter. I’m going to try out southpaw in the gym to see if i’m more comfortable that way (shadow boxing at home seem to lean that direction). I assume this means my eyes are equally dominant, but what does it mean for possible stances/techniques? Right now im thinking like having two weak hands.
Try doing what your trainer says and see. @Johnny J – wait isn’t it the opposite? Then he showed me what he means by pivot…he’s a southpaw and what he did is bascially stepping with his lead leg left and right all the time and turning around while doing it… looked a little weird though.
Whichever one is more functional at the end of that time is probably your dominant hand (in regards to the speedbag test).

2 final notes for southpaw VS orthodox1) You also have to see how uneven your body mechanics are. I think it is spot on. The advice on this webpage has reinforced the fact that orthodox is my natural stance and it makes sense to have the stronger hand back to land power punches. I read in another article of yours that “strong back leg+strong back hand+ strong eye’ is the best possible combination. Thank you in advance.
I must say that I was perfectly healthy when I started boxing and STILL had to ice my left shoulder after having jabbed for an entire day. All the muscles on my left side were bigger but my right side had more endurance. Cuz of big gloves its rare that you see somebody get knocked out with a jab. I might strike with the right arm to the left temple, while with my right I’m already moving to credit card their groin, or jab their clavicle.
My boy is almost 11 and has been training since 8, he writes with his left hand and kicks a football with his right, he is at the moment comfortable in the orthodox stance and shapes well but really uses his right hand more than his jab (one handed fighter) but when putting him to southpaw he is very unbalanced but does use both hands. Right-hand-forward has the following advantages though: Im awared of advantages of orthodox but cant stick to it because of the pain that its causes Me after training. Keep switching if you feel comfortable and get away with it. Personally, I began with, and thus probably prefer the horizontal strike hailing from Karate and TKD. It’s kinda strange… I always had a problem off shifting to much weight on the front left while jabbing in an orthodox stance and following up with my right because of that.
