What I've been told is to picture how awkward it is kicking with your left leg at first, and that's how it is with every strike for some that aren't naturally good at striking.
Never heard it broken down like that before. I cant even imagine being like that. Ive seen people come and go in gyms that can never seem to get the basic's of throwing a jab down. I could never grasp why they couldnt just follow the damn instructions. That must suck really bad. Ive always felt like you should be able to teach a monkey the essential basics of boxing, guess ive never considered it like that. Wow, glad im not that phyically akward.
