Last night I was working with an opponent who was probably 5'8" or so. I'm 6'4". We were doing a drill where I would throw a double jab, he would counter with a left hook, which I was supposed to slip. I told him to throw at my head because if not I won't get any better. I only got hit one time during the drill, so I thought I did pretty well. When it was over he told me that he could have hit me every time because I was just too tall. That got me thinking, do I need to work on getting down much further than I am? Or is jut not a good idea to try and duck under hooks from a guy that much shorter anyway? Ideally I would want to use my jab, cross, and kicks to keep him from ever getting close enough to throw hooks, but I'm sure you can't do that 100% of the time. I do know that ducking further than I was ducking last night seems extremely difficult.
