    I wish I'd had more footwork forced on me when I was a kid boxing. At the gyms I went looking back we worked on everything ad nauseam except footwork after learning the basics

    I saw a German fighter training under Pedro Diaz, former coach for the Cuban national team, the kid had great footwork even in a small ring, his opponent just couldn't get in any position to cut off the ring. I can always tell the Cuban fighters because they tend to stand up straighter and rely on the jab.

    He is explaining about a tempo change. He says "you are in a rhytm jumping back and forth, being slow. Then you increase the tempo".

    He is correcting a lot regarding the landing and punching and positioning all the time. He even tells her "go now" when she fails to do it as she is not doing it as he wants.

    I kind of get it but the 1-2 using a half step is quicker and easier but if you miss you can't step back as fast.
    So in the video he uses 8 beats for 3 punches with the pendulum steps but you can throw them in 4 beats with half steps.

    Speed is not their priority.

    So is mastering pendulum steps worth it and where can I find instructionals? Also when do you use them? How do you transition between? Some people don't use an upward motion with pendulum steps to increase power and some do why is that? I remember tyson used upward motion all the time when punching but his style is different.

    There are too many different styles to find a coach for each and every one.

    I just want to learn about them not master them I am new in boxing but I started tkd type of arts when I was 6 years old. I am good with kicks and I am bored of them I want to learn about boxing. I wanna learn about all styles before I decide which one to train.

    Well you cant really decide that way. You pick a good coach and you follow his.guidance. if you do it your way you will end up like me - too many bad habits to unlearn and a very few good ones
