Basic Boxing Training and Techniques
I intend to add a lot to this page, in my opinion boxing is one of the best CV exercises around, mainly due to how enjoyable it is so it pushes you beyond your limits, also other benefits in weight reduction, muscle tone and confidence. I would highly recommend trying a decent boxing gym to anyone.
Stand with feet approximately shoulder width apart. Body weight should be evenly distributed between both feet. Both knees should be slightly bent. The left hand should be held protecting the left side of face and ribs. The right hand should be held protecting the right side of face and ribs. Head and chin must be kept down with eyes fixed on opponent looking through eyebrows at opponent. Body must be turned sideways to opponent.
Footwork movement should consist of short sharp sliding steps on the balls of the feet. When moving forward - push off rear foot. When moving backward - push off front foot. When moving to your left - the left foot moves off first. When moving to your right - the right foot moves off first. When moving always maintain your basic stance. Always keep your guard up protecting yourself at all times.
The punch is aimed to your opponent’s face in a straight line. Pivoting your shoulder and hips. Slide your feet forward before impact. Bring the hand back along the same path as the delivery in a straight line. The right hand must be held high to protect yourself.
Drive the right hand fully extended at your opponent in a straight line. Pivoting your shoulder and hip, shift most of your body weight onto your front foot. Keep your left hand up to protect yourself. Bring your hand back along the same path as the delivery.
