Punch mitt training is the closest thing to replicating a sparring session. It develops precise synchronization of speed, power, and accuracy. Punch mitt drills allow you to work on timing and accuracy while mimicking real boxing situations.

Punch Mitt Slip Combo #1

 

In boxing, slipping punches is an essential defensive technique. Punch mitt training is the perfect tool to master the slipping motion since the catcher is simulating throwing a punch toward you. Your previous training of visualizing punches coming at you and slipping while shadow boxing, hitting the heavy bag, and double-end bag will prepare you for slipping when training with the focus mitts.

Always practice slipping combinations slowly to start and gradually increase the speed as you feel more comfortable. Stay focused and react quickly when practicing slipping combinations. Always keep the hands up in the on-guard position bending at the waist and knees slightly, and shifting the body to the left or the right to avoid the punch. Do not drop your hands and do not look at the floor. Keep your eyes on your partner at all times.
