  • One of the four basic strategies of defensive boxing--along with blocking, rolling, and holding and clinching.
  • Similar to slipping (slightly moving the head from side-to-side to avoid getting hit), but here the head moves down to avoid the punch, with the boxer bending at the waist and at the knees.
  • Under most, if not all, modern rules of boxing, it is illegal to duck lower than the opponent's belt line.
