Re: On viewing technique

IMHO as an older boxer, I watch the feet first.

As an advocate for posture and body alignment (head over shoulders over hips over knee over feet - moving through the center), the way the feet move is the way the body moves.

I also try to do it from an associated/participatory position (as if I were actually doing it) instead of disocciated/spectator position).
