Cross and Shoulder Roll

In the pictures below you see the shoulder roll being used as a defense against a right cross. Notice that when the cross is thrown, the chin is kept down and the shoulder up, providing cover against a simultaneous attack. You can also watch the cross and shoulder roll defense in the video on my main boxing page.
