Why put your hands down and take a punch to the face, completely undefended? Why? No one likes getting punched in the face, and these are some basics that you should probably implement in order to not get knocked out. Just “answer the phone” or bring your hands back, do something, anything. Why do you let this happen to yourself? It’s like when your older brother would take your wrists and hit you in the face – why are you hitting yourself? Stop hitting yourself. Except you are doing it to yourself.
