I notice I start off with the basic orthodox stance I was taught and when I'm moving around I still maintain the stance, but when I'm really trying to avoid punches or throwing hard I tend to develop a wider stance and knees are more bent - lower to the ground. I think I like being low and feel more comfortable with my punches with a wider stance. Right now I don't have access to a trainer and have to ask older former-boxers who just want to spar me. My stance seems to naturally change a lot as well, I think part of it is an issue with my balance and the other is a comfort level with my movement. Moving around the ring - traditional orthodox then it when about to engage or avoid punches, knees bend more and wider stance. Any suggestions? Is this wrong? I guess I could ask some guys at the gym...they are way ahead of me and can switch stances like nothing, but seem to be better sparring partners than trainers.
