Lesson # 11:

[b"Rocky Marciano's phantom overhand".


You can effectively throw this phantom overhand move from a distance that is usually unthinkable when throwing a classic overhand.

A confident opponent has dropped his left hand; as he doesn't believe that you could throw any punch with your right hand from that distance (see figure 1).

Figure 1.- Look to your opponents eyes till you start your move.

Now change your sight to the body as you step forward with your front foot bending your knees a lot and dropping your glove in an arch: This preliminary move makes your opponent suspect an attack low or to the body (which causes him to react and open up further falling into the trap of your real intentions. (see figure 2).

Figure 2.- Your glove will follow a path like the one drawn.

Your legs will work like springs. Bend your knees allot, then spring up fast and let your glove continue the line of the arch; (see figures 3, 4, 5).

Figure 3.- Go up violently, fast with your legs.

Figure 4.- At this point you can look at the target, no problem.

Figure 5.- He won't see (in time) the phantom overhand coming.

This punch can also be thrown from a distance, or even a little closer or a little further than what we have just seen. If you are set up at a greater distance or if the opponent shuffles back creating more distance, you can throw it while raising your back foot making it land further forward as sometimes the great Rocky Marciano did.
