That's dumb...why not just practice with your hands up and work slipping....
I didnt start to get it (even with trainers coaching me and working it in with mitts) until I started to spend a ton of time on blocking/slipping/counterpunching drills.
I really enjoyed them, so I spent a lot of time with them. It's pretty easy to get somebody welse to do them with you, especially at a gym with other beginners; everyone needs to work on their defense, and it's physically/psychologically easier than sparring (you don't have to deal with the whole "nobody wants to spar today cause it sucks getting punched in the face" thing).
I credit the Mayweather style mittwork for making my head movement second nature. You just have to drill it over and over until your body knows what to do without your brain having to tell it.
