Joe Ray - You have to practice moving in the 6 fundamental directions: forwards, backwards, left ,right, diagonally forwards-left and diagonally backwards-right.

Practice shuffle steps in these directions, with small steps and progressively to very large steps. Practice moving slow to gain your balance and technique then practice moving as fast you can in these directions.

Also practice doing jump steps in all these directions ie. doing very small jumps in a direction by pushing off the balls of both feet.

That should get you started.

This may be a stupid question but why not diagonally backwards left and diagonally forwards right?

Only the southpaw stance can move diagonally backwards left and, diagonally forward right.

If you were standing in an orthodox stance to move right, you move your right leg which is your back leg and lead(left) leg to move left.

In the orthodox stance, if you wanted to turn to the right you pivot off the left foot and slide your right behind you.

im struggling to put it into words, its easier to show someone, if anyone else could help i'd appreciate it haha

That is true if you are stuck in ONE stance.

Joe Ray - When your weight is on your back foot when throwing the right hand you are still transferring your weight forward.

It may sound contradictory to say you punch straight, even move straight ahead, yet keep your weight on your rear foot but that is how it is done.

When you can torque your body and pivot your hips correctly, you can start to generate serious power while keeping your weight on your rear leg.


??

If using a step jab or step straight, isn't the power generated through rotation largely limited, and instead acquired through forward momentum so the punch lands flush just before the step finishes....

And if planted or focusing on hip force, your weight needs to be on the back foot before a right straight, but is then transfered to the lead so that your hips are finished rotating weight inside-to-outside at the end of your straight....

This makes no sense. The entire point of weight transfer is to move your weight along with the punch. Kinda curious since I'm not a real boxer, but that's always been basic method at any gym I've frequented

Because a right handed orthodox keeps his right foot and hand backwards, and his left foot and hand forwards.

If your left foot is forward and you move it back left, you've just switched stances to south paw or had extra/clumsy movement that completely nullified your attacks / leaves you temporarily off-balance

Pretty much the philosophy i have aswell. By transfering the weight from your rear leg to your lead leg with the right hand punch, not only are you hitting with more power but you are also loading up your left hook wich then transfers the weight from the lead leg back to the rear leg

Hitting is all about these weight transfers that go back and forth

Best footwork drill ever:

you got to slower than 5 meters in 5 minutes
an outside viewer has to be in doubt whether you're moving or not...
