    Anyone have some concepts for fa southpaw or anything more advanced to add to your style? Everyone says lead foot to the outside but what about for certain stuff the foot on the inside like the jab? or what about hand positioning? controlling the range? footwork? if anything has any tips/tricks for opposite stance fighting post here. Thank you

    -Threaten and attack the opponent's centreline
    -Be aware of the threats of the opponents and opportunities that you have
    -Move whenever and wherever you feel that maximize your attacks and minimize your openings.
    Really, that's three basic philosophies i followed these day when it comes to fighting orthodox as a southpaw. The thing about this is that it applied to orthodox vs orthodox as well. Note that there's no dogma like "always keep the foot outside the wall" or "move outside of the opponent's rear hand" as it will lock fighters into a very predictable gameplan.
