I think i understand it
does it mean?

CL2 + 2OH- ---> CL- + OCL- +H20

Chlroine gets both oxisded and reduced?

cl2 ---> cl-
0 ---- -1 which is reduction?

cl2 ---> ocl-

o---> +1 which is oxidsation

yep that's it, well explained ;p

all you have to remember is that disproportionation is the simultaneous oxidation and reduction of an element (and therefore the element must have at least 3 oxidation states)
