Some of these defenses against the right hand seem rather strange and dangerous to me. "Roll with the punch" - How?! Seems like a high percentage failure rate. "Block with the shoulder" - In theory it sounds like a good technique. Im still having trouble with it. Maybe I just need more practice. I prefer to slip out of the way of the punch and use footwork to evade the right. If I have to I I block it or catch it. I would like to learn to roll and block right hands with my shoulder but the techniques are not working for me thus far... Ideas?
