I was under the impression box jumps were performed all in one movement. Jump onto the box and jump back down trying to rebound back up. I saw the "Fight Gone Bad" video and noticed that after the jump onto the platform you would simply take a step back down.

Is this the correct way?

Either way is correct. It's not about how you get down from the box, it's about using explosive energy to jump up to the box.

Box jumps, how I love thee...

Coach Joe DeFranco seems to think doing depth jumps is good for your vertical leap, so I do my box jumps like depth jumps. I start out on top of the box and bounce off the ground.

Tabata box jumps are my favorite.
