How would you.

How would you counter a left, right combo in a boxing style. I've only just started training in Ju-Jitsu and was faced with this problem today, the first punch was easy to block, but twisting the body to get to the second punch took to long. Will this problem fade as I get better, or should I not have tried to block and just side steped?

P.S. I also bought a leg stretching machine, are they useful?

Move your feet...not just side step but as the left is thrown, parry / cover it but symultaneously 'slip' right and drive out from your right leg to the outside of the attackers left punch left, drawing in your trailing left leg as you do so.

By doing the above you need not worry about the following right of the attacker and you have the oportunity to drive again off your right leg whilst twisting to your left and deliver a devastatingly powerful right hook to attackers body (rear of lower ribcage / kidneys) or side of attackers head (suggest palm heel type strike though if not wearing gloves to avoid damage to your hand) "Its not the size of the dog in the fight, its the size of the fight in the dog"

I've adjusted my stance form left arm in front, to the right arm in front I'm happier in this position but I have to reverse all the moves. I like the top suggestion I think I'll start working on that technique.

a ju jitsu guy blocking a boxers punches with traditional blocks is a stupid idea,

hands up, duck weave slip.
