How to Catch from the Head & Counter Boxing Lessons

Catch from the Head & Counter

First, we caught to the body. Now we’re going to catch from the head. This is how we do that.

He’s going to catch this side, and this side. You notice when he catches these shots, if it’s a real heavy shot, he may have to raise his arm a little bit more, but that elbow never comes above your chin level. So, if it’s a real heavy shot, he’ll bring that up just like so. If I go overhand right, he just brings that a little higher, all right? So, he’s going to catch here, and then he’s going to add a two on that.

Again, catch two. Work the other side. Catch; beautiful. Again, catch, now the two. Catch, two. Now, he’s going to add a one-two on that. One, two; catch, two. You notice I go to this side because when he extends that right hand, I see that this side is vulnerable but not on Delen Parsley.

One, two; catch, two. One, two; catch, two. Let’s work the other side. We have to add one more punch. Three, two; three; that’s it. Three; one more time, reach with that arm. Three; beautiful.
