What We Will Cover
Classic Western boxing classes provide the foundation any fighter needs for solid hand striking and head movement.
Striking with power requires more than muscle. It starts with good footwork, balance, and an understanding of proper form. Students will learn how to generate power by using key parts of the body to drive torque and deliver the maximum potential of their bodies.
The essence of boxing and crucial to maintaining stability, balance and fluidity. Footwork and the stance is taught in training through forward, backward and side to side movement. Emphasis is placed on attacking and defending from orthodox and southpaw stances.
Staying light on the feet and moving deftly on one’s toes is a skill that must be developed in boxing. Much of speed comes from a sound understanding of the strike and solid footwork. With practice, diligence and consistency, speed will be acquired and applied.
The most important defence besides the guard, ducking, bobbing, weaving and slipping all play an important part in avoiding strikes. Emphasis is placed on minimizing strikes to the head in order to avoid injury and tire out an opponent.
Combos feature a variety of punches, jabs, crosses, hooks, uppercuts and overhands to strike your opponent in powerful and rapid succession. Plenty of time is devoted to practicing combinations that will prepare you for competition.
Teaching all styles and determining what type of style you are is important to determining the proper combinations and training. Whether you are a swarmer, brawler, counter puncher fighting from the inside or outside, time will be spent making sure you develop your style.
