    Wondering if anyone had any good tips/video instructions about this move: the slip to the outside of the right hand followed by the left-hook body left hook/uppercut head.

    I can do it in slow drilling and on the bag but always find it difficult to land in sparring, feel off balance or don't get in close enough to land the first body shot.

    I'm kind of having same issue. Probably slipping too much to the left.

    There's a partner drill that goes like this: slip the straight and throw a hook to the body, hook to the head, and a straight right of your own. Your partner slips your right and throws a hook to your body, hook to your head, and a straight. You slip, hook-hook-straight.... Back and forth

    Yup! Thanks guys.

    I've done the partner drills and I get it fine. But for some reason in live action I find it very difficult. I guess it's just drill and drill again like everything else!! :)

    The way I land it is to consider the slip to be a faked right overhand, everything but the arm, so I step forward and left with my lead leg and I'm balanced for the left and lowered in stance.

    interesting! I think the step might well be the issue for me, in that i don't take it!

    You'll see that I step prematurely in mine, because of this I have to hop to compensate after the hook. The thing I wanted to show you with mine is that I'm reading his one-two right in the beginning after the body jab. When I have his timing down, then I timed my slip-left hook. The punch has started before he starts pulling his right hand back which lets me land it before his next move.

    Thanks, I think somebody hit the bag really hard at the exact moment I hit him, so it sounds like that loud thud is me hitting him. It was a clean hit, but it wasn't THAT clean. hahahahaha

    You have to step to get in range as you slip outside, unless he closes the distance for you say if he was throwing lunging overhand right hand. Otherwise if you just slip in place you'll be miles away.

    yeah that's what's happening!
    Slip folllowed by long range hook isn't much of a problem for me, but the slip hook body was really killing me. I'll drill the sh** out of the slip step now :D
