Common reason for this is not changing levels, just falling onto your knee. Practice helps a lot, it's like how boxers combinations look so fluid, yet guys who throw the exact same straight jab cross look stiff. The fluidity is something that comes with time.

You don't need to drop your knee when you shoot doubles. Change levels, keep your back straight throughout, head slightly up, shrug shoulders and shoot.

If you are both in orthodox stance, you would step in with your left foot between his legs and right leg on the outside of his left leg. You change levels simultaneously as you are shooting in.

If you absolutely have to drop the knee for some reason, make sure you go from heel to toe on your front leg and stay fluid throughout the movement.

This totally improved my game! Why shrug the shoulders?

You want to block his hands from controlling your head or going for guillotines. Nice to hear it helped :-) Phone Post
