I am going to take up fencing at my college for fun and maybe improve my footwork in boxing. My question is as a orthodox boxer would it be more benificial to fence as a left hander to improve my jab for boxing and orthodox footwork , or as a right hander to maybe learn footwork as southpaw and be a switch stance boxer like hagler, hamed , and herol graham. Just to clarify to anyone stances are inverted when comparing boxers to fencers (e.g. right handed boxer front foot is left and right handed fencer right foot forward and vice versa for left handed stance). Also from a fencing perspective would be rude to ask for coach to teach like a left hander if your actually right handed? Also could the mechanics of thursting in fencing ruin the mechanics of my jab?
