1 Series Boxing Combinations
Quick Intro to Boxing Numbering
To recap and for those of you finding yourself on this page without having read the main boxing combinations page, we number punches in boxing - (again reverse for southpaws):
- 2-Straight Right
- 3-Left Hook
- 4-Right Hook
- 5-Left Uppercut
- 6-Right Uppercut
- And we put a B after the punch if it is supposed to be a bodyshot...
What is a Series?
This page will show you how to build 1 series boxing combinations. That's just my fancy way of saying that when you throw a 1 series combination, it consists of only one type of punch.
So, for instance, if you're instructed to throw a double jab or triple jab - you are throwing a one series combination because it consists only of the jab. If you throw a double right or triple right - again, you are throwing a one series combination because it consists of only one type of punch.
To note, one series combinations also include punches thrown to both the body and head - so a 1B-1-1B is still a one series even though it kind of looks like there are two diferent types of punches -- they are both still jabs, just different targets.
Most Common 1 Series Boxing Combinations
The most common 1 series combinations are the double, triple, and quadruple jabs. Occasionally, you'll see a couple of double rights (or lefts for southpaws) and you'll definitely see some 3B-3-3B combinations. You'd be best served if you mastered the following:
Jab One Series
Straights One Series
This is not a natural combination as your weight transfer is not ideal for a second straight - you'll have to re-cock, but it has been done. I wouldn't put too much emphasis on these.
Hook One Series
Like the straights, these feel kind of awkward as the weight transfer for the first punch doesn't work well with a second hook, but they are easier to re-cock than a straight and used quite frequently.
Make Up Your Own
There is no limit to the number of one series combination boxing combinations you can come up with. It is simply a matter of throwing the same punch in succession either to the head or body or mixing them up. The most important to master are the double and triple jabs as they are a key part of your offensive game. From there, branch out, try some others, and put the ones you feel most comfortable with in your arsenal.
