So keeping your chin tucked helps absorb punches?

By tuking your chin/lifting your hands to jawline level you minimize and in most respects nullify any kinetic trauma to nerves within/connected to the jaw.

^Thanks. Lol sorry for asking so many question Im working on my defense alot now though. It seems I almost always keep my Left arm up in defense of the right hook , and my right arm a little lower by the chin. I still feel like my chin is exposed. When I do this

Just to add to that if your chin is tucked and you are in the correct stance then when you throw a strike your chin is protected from hooks by your shoulder until you hand returns to its original position.

mma13guy has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Moving your head back is an instinct just like blinking. When you flinch back its not because your timid, its because your human. Your coach is still correct. You need to tuck your chin and move your head on a slight angle (left right or down) so the punch does not hit you clean, but glances off your forehead. Have someone throw very slow punches at you and then gradually increase speed. I use the baseball analogy if your first day of little league the coach gives you 96 mph fast balls you will quit. Start on the tee and then work up speed gradually as your confidence and skill improve. I have some drills that could help. send a private message if interested in seeing them

I agree with the post above me. Just start slow and build your way up just like anything in life. I was afraid of getting hit at first then when i actually got in there and boxed and got hit in the face it really was no big deal.
