Hi Boxaerobic instructors so glad to send another bunch of combos I hope you will enjoy. The Movements in a diagonal direction are of my favorite combinations. Although I have a number submitted already there is still more on the shelf to share. I first saw them performed last Feb. 99 by Libby Norris and have used them since.

For the sake of not having to repeat "2 diagonal steps (left or right; advancing or retreating) with jabs" I will say it just once per model and the following combinations would be just added onto the model.

- From here in this model you will need (12 more counts) to reach (16) which would be a good number since when you advance you eventually have to retreat or you run out of space. The other 16 counts to make a full 32 eventually come from retreating back to the original position. (After finishing the 16 count)

- Make sure when you had enough diagonal movements in the left direction that you change over to the right for an equal amount: to maintain balance in your routine.

Beginners example to add to the top

- Add at half time a left jab (2), right straight punch (2), left hook (2) right hook (2) (8)
- Add at tempo the same combination above for a (4) (including the top = 16) (now you retreat back to original position using the top model and the combination; (16) (32) simple enough)

- Begin with the top again (4)
- Add on at half time body block with left elbow (2) left knee block (2) left hook (2) right hook (2) (8)
- Then at tempo repeat it (4) (including top = 16)
- Retreat to original positon with top and combinations (16) (32)

- Begin with the top again (4)
- Add on at half time a slip to the right (2) right straight punch (2) then at tempo right knee up (to fake a kick) (2) left front kick (2) (8)
- Then at tempo repeat it (you will have to be fast with the knee up and kick) (4) (including the top = 16)
- Again retreat to original position using same top and combinations (16) (32)

Top: 2 diagonal steps advancing to the left with jabs then retreating with 2 diagonal steps back to original position (8)

- From here all you have to add is another 8 count combination for a 16 count. (If the moves are simple enough you can go in both directions but for this submission just go in one direction like the last model then after 2-4 x switch over to the other direction until you are used to it)

Another beginners example:

- Add on to the top at half time a left jab (2) right straight punch (2) left uppercut (2) right uppercut (2) (8) total = 16

- Add to the top at tempo this time the last combination done twice (8) total = 16

- Add at half time a slip to the right (2) right uppercut (2) slip to the left (more like a weave) (2) left uppercut (2) (8) total = 16

- Add to the top this time at tempo the last combination done twice (this gets tricky) (8) total = 16

- Add to the top this time at half time a left elbow smash (2) then at tempo a left knee block (2) then at half time a right straight punch (2) then at tempo a right front kick (2) (8) total = 16

- Add to the top this time a bob to the left and weave to the right (4) right front kick (carefully land the foot down so as to point it diagonally right) (2) left side kick (when you advance again your feet should be eventually moving pointed forward again) (2) (8) total = 16

Please remember to change direction on all the above combinations after you have gone in one direction a few times.

Keep it simple and safe.

Till next time. Remember goodboxerseyes
