a question about southpaws

Post by Yuzo »

southpaws can do a magic trick. when they pivot they go behind your back and they disappear.

when they pivot theres nobody there to hit anymore. they just disappear. but, when they pivot, they are turning into your hook, right?

Image

but a southpaw knows that too. specifically, he knows that to get hit by your hook, two things have to be true. he has to be nearby you and he has to have his hand down.

Image

so when a southpaw stays just out of the span of your hook and he puts a hand up: how do you hit him? can you hit him?

well, a southpaw and orthodox line up the same way when they are facing opposite directions, as happens when boxing someone. you can try using some of their own medicine on them :yay:

You can't hit him, because of his positioning: he can strike you being on your side, but what can you do in boxing terms - nothing (you can possibly do some side kicks in theory if other style, but they'll rarely work).

Southpaw is specific, I won't go into details, but the position requires you to do differently than an orthodox and you don't make analogies. For a southpaw, an orthodox looks the same way. The following can give a good understanding: a southpaw can struggle more against a southpaw than against an orthodox.
