Repeat something 10,000 times and turn your body into a weapon.The greatest style of boxing is catch-n-shoot.The greatest defence is angling and slipping.The greatest mental victory is being unreadable. Feign.
So you miss a shot, or you dont miss. The next thing you need to do is step to the side, or pick a new head slot (by slipping, ducking, and either moving or throwing)
>>84846another identical example Notice how both counter punches could have been avoided with defensive responsibility, angle or slip!!Cus D Mato told Tyson to slip after every punch
Here's some headmovement showing how OP it is
>>84845>most people are out boxers/counter puncherseasy work for a pressurechad like myself
>>85021Based. Livingstone Bramble is one of my favorite pressure fighters. Nothing pisses off sliccsters more than constantly staying in range and putting punches on them. I've had dudes ragequit because they couldn't handle the pressure and didn't have enough pop to keep me honest.
Here's a nice distance closer while slipping at the same time>>85021>easy work for a pressurechad like myselfHey buddy just wait til youre against someone who can catch n shootYou aint no Isac Cruz, ya punk ass
>>85214>catch n shooti barely commit to punches when im in the center of the ring, i just threaten them so they walk in the corner then i throw combinations. if you want to beat me youre gonna have to master the bumrush
Boxing is the most practical martial art by some distance. It's ridiculous how effective it's basic techniques are for 9/10 self-defence situations.It's conditioning work and GPP needed just shit all over everything else too except maybe Muay Thai.

This thread has been up for more than a month damn this board is slow>>86967Russian school of boxing & expertboxing are the only 2 where i learned something i applied in practice.
I've noticed that I seem to blink when I throw certain punches. I'm not consciously aware of the flinching, but when I check recordings of training it shows. How do I fix this?
>>88564Dont post in these threads- the server owner is legit insane
>>88564blinking when you throw punches? never heard of that just maintain eye contact with yourself when shadowing in the mirror
>>88605Hes a crazy /pol/ retard who boxes for some months and mostly has no real experience about boxing. Its mostly impossible to argue with this retard. Plus he shits on other martial arts without knowing anything about them too
is it a good idea to hire a private coach who has a pro-level gym?>at least AT FIRST before joining a competitive level gymHonestly my (((therapist))) told me to get into a competitive combat sport ...
>>88743Of course. Maybe learn some basics and drill by your self in the start if money is an issue.
>>88158Thanks, Ill check em out. Personally Ive been watching hard2hurt, Tony Jefferies, Gabriel Varga and recently started checking out precision boxing.
>>89512who are you? you've been replying to this to almost every MA thread lol
is it a good idea to fill the punching bag with iron sand instead of the normal cloth its used?
>>89544yea if you want to break your hand go for it
Do any of you guys lift for boxing at all? If so, what do you do? Explosive lifts mainly?
>>90723Light explosive movements, kettlebells and medicine balls. I've never lifted heavy and only did once for a laugh at my friends house. Turns out I can easily lift more than my bodyweight for reps.
>>85249The nazis phrased it succinctly.
Is there any boxing style exercise fix for people with repeating ankle sprains? It happens even when I spar someone. Is shit just fucked?
>>85021That’s also my style but my gym was full of pressure fightersDo I got used? No but fuck now i trust my chin the frist sucker punch I got out of the gym made me laugh
>>84845Do you guys know this thing? Yesterday I did hit one of those. Just normal standing, right punch, turning my hips with the punch etc. but after hitting it my arm did kinda hurt. Like not my hand but more like my arm til elbow. As if it became numb. Did you ever experienced anything like that? What did I do wrong?
>>84845is there a recommended fitness routine to complement boxing? Wondering what it would look like with gym X times a week and not getting gassed or overworking your body.
>>95354Soft hands/bones made your nerves go numb. Lack of forearm strenght to maintain a stable and strong fist when punching.Lack of awareness while punching, not closing your fist as hard as you can when hitting the target.Pick one, more than one, or all of the above.
>>95429Well how to fix the first one then? I mean it did hurt.
>>95453First, wait until you feel like your hand is alright again. Then start conditioning your hands, start this by wrapping your hands and hitting the bag (dont go for the heaviest hardest one in the gym, if you can. If you don't have any other option, you need to gauge the power even more than with a softer bag).Start punching, from lighter punches to harder punches until you develop a feeling of what is too light and whats too hard. Don't forget to, at the same time, punch with clean technique. That way we're killing two bird with one punch.Dont punch until you feel like your hand will fall off. You need less than you think, at least when starting conditioning your fists. I'd say 3 rounds of 2 minutes each. If you feel like you can do more, please wait until the next days and observe how your knuckles feel. Even if you feel the slightest amount of discomfort/pain/tingle, it means your bones are healing. Dont go at it again, wait until those are practically gone. Then again, with wraps, at the bag.Of course, you can box while they heal, that's why you train with boxing gloves.You can do knuckle push ups, they are great accessory exercises, but nothing compares to hitting the bag without gloves.Once you feel strong enough, you can start hitting the bag without wraps.Extra advice:Please, this should already be ingrained in your brain, but without gloves it's even more important: Hit your target with your fist closed as hard as you can. If you don't, your wrist is limp, that means you will hurt your wrist. This is specially true when hitting hooks and uppercuts, because your fist strikes the bag in a weird angle.Some trainers don't want you to hit the bag withotu gloves, which is understandable. Hitting the bag without gloves put a lot of strain on them, eventually ripping the material. Time to buy your own bag, or ask if they have an old one laying around to hit or even buy. Doesn't matter if it's old and raggedy, it's easy to repair.
I've just started with boxing, I see a coach once every week. However I'd like to check out boxing gyms alone or get a bag for home just to practice and workout. Is it a good idea to punch alone so early in the learning process? Also: how are boxing gyms in general? Do people talk randomly or everyone minds his own business, randos start sparring with each other etcetc.?
>>95552depends on where you are and the overall gym culture, it varies quite a bit as far as sparring and how conversational people are. Typically if it's a competitive amatuer gym they're more social and sparring is more common especially when a tournament is coming up. YOu're fine to ppunch alone as long as you dont punch with your entire body weight, take it slow and take the time to drill your form and work up your muscle endurance
How do I get over flinching? I've been training striking for about 2 and a half months, and sparring for most of those, but I still feel like my eyes are closed half the time and I'm just swinging wildly when I get in close. Is this something that goes away automatically with experience, or is there specific things I can do to minimize flinching?
>>84861>Cus D Mato told Tyson to slip after every punch
>>84929>bending at the waist>head below/near opponents dicknot real head movement, real niggas only duck at opponenta stomach level
I couldn't tell if it was true or not at first when I saw the OP because my background is in muay thai and always got rekt by boxers (about four years training several times a week) so safe to say my boxing isn't good but it really makes a hell of a lot of sense to move your head after the last punch you throw, I can't understand why none of my muay thai coaches has ever made a point of teaching this defensive aspect the way Teddy Atlas did in his fucking beginners instructionals second DVD.protip get into boxing first before doing muay thai if you want to be actually good at boxinggoing to go through all the boxing instructionals I can get my hands on
>>96311>protip get into boxing first before doing muay thai if you want to be actually good at boxingoh really? I've been considering either starting at one of the local boxing gyms or the local muay thai one. Thoughts for a complete novice with 0 experience who's short too?

>>97217heavyweight likewise sounds like a euphemism
Hey I've been boxing in a gym for 2 days now. When are my shoulders gonna start feeling loose? Where should I throw my punches from, when I throw a good one i feel it come from my lat muscle is that correct?
>>97345Hips and shoulders.thats how you knock people out.also mentality is crucial. When you are going for a ko you have to be thinking I am going to murder or disfigure the deude in front of me.
>>97364murder thoughts on the bag isn't weird is it?
>>97373No. The bag is expressively meant to hone your aggression with proper form. That's why all the old school coaches focused on bag work and held that shit. They could feel whether you meant it or not.
Like 2 years ago I did boxing for about 3 months or so. I wanna get back into it again. Newbie advice/training tips? Exercises? Videos? Resources? If it helps, I'd like to spar, too.
I signed up for a white collar fight a few weeks ago.Have been training 2x per week for around 2-3 years now. We do pretty heavy sparring every session almost for 3-5 or so rounds on average. I am now upping my training to 5x per week, other 2 days lifting. for 8 weeks up to the fight. 3x at the white collar training sessions, 2x at my normal boxing sessions, 2x days lifting. Will taper the lifting out towards the end of the 8 weeks. Will i be too OP for this? They are supposed to match you up with someone of 'equal' skill and im sure a few guys there have done boxing before. Part of me thinks i should just be doing amatuer matches but the problem is that im 28 and my coach hasnt even mentioned doing an amatuer match to me once. So i took it in to my own hands because id like to experience what it is like in an actual fight. I wish i had gotten in to boxing sooner. Should i simply not give a fuck about a skill gap and decimate whoever they put up against me? Hell, i might be wrong anyway and get btfo.
>>97732Just Do IT
This is just new people to boxing responding to new people to boxing.

Where would an absolute beginner start, in terms of boxing? Should I just purchase a bag and gloves and start doing basic drills? I know I answered my own question but any further insight would be greatly appreciated.
Join a club lmao trial by fire.>>97757
Seriously though just join a club try it for a week or two and see if you like it or not>>97757
>>97757Also just watch some boxing
bros my coach taught me how to find my range today ( i have 9 maybe 10ish hours in the gym) I'm kinda long. When i find my range should i be able to throw my hooks without stepping in?
I like hitting the water bag also i was able to get through a whole round of hitting pads, am i gonna be a world beater?
>>97757Jog a few miles every other day at least.Lift heavy weights. Keep in mind that pulling lifts will do more for punching power than pushing lifts.And yeah, join a boxing club or gym.

>>97732>>97735>>97742>>97744https://youtu.be/22B1g1fYescHeres the fight guys. Im in the red. vid starts half way through the 1st round. Apparently the other guy had boxed for 3 years as well but it doesnt show. This is the first time i have seen myself box on camera. Some things i learnt :>I suck at boxing and look way more sloppy, uncordinated and slow than i thought i was >my punches look like they're in slow motion compared to how they felt throwing them>my guard is retarded and way too low. I spaz out an panic in the 1st round and put my glove above my head to guard?>i throw shots from the chest instead of from any kind of stance which leaves me open whenever i do.>i dont use the jab enough at all>i dont return my punches to my stance, my gloves end up lower than the already low hand position in my stance. >putting a groin guard on makes you look 30lbs heavier. My strategy was basically, get lead foot dominance, win exchanges with straight lefts and then tie him up with a clinch, rinse and repeat. Which worked and i won. But looking at the footage i dont really think i would have been in any danger if i hadnt ended each exchange with a clinch. The guy landed like 3 scoring shots on me the whole fight. Theres also an uppercut at @41 secs that wobbled him but its hard to make out with the cam position.
>>104023>>103713You can, but you'd have to rely on your other senses and tailor your style to compensate.Justin Gaethje is an MMA fighter, but relies a lot on his boxing. He was legally blind and had something like 20/200 vision in both eyes. He used a lot of static guards and used a pitch and catch style. The other guy looked like a blur to him, but when he felt a punch land against his guard, he knew he was close enough to hit.
>>104023No, they only ever came off twice in my 5 years training full contact martial arts and that was when people pulled a Jon Jones and grabbed into my eye while sparring.
>>97757>Learn how to throw a punch>throw punches>lift weights>jog>stretchIt's that easy to start
>>105414He actually got his vision fixed. Oliviera is still blind af though. Needs thick glasses to get by outside the cage. Explains his poor striking defence. He will walk right into striking and not move his head

>>107981this is for boxers not boxing fans
>>102233There’s no actual weight transfer that will get you to a position to fire the other hand or follow up to control the center line. The immediate retraction essentially ensures that you’ll be right back in the same spot to get hit in the face. This way of throwing your 2 probably works best if you have a considerable height and reach advantage
>>84845Gel or no gel bag gloves?
Should I abandon boxing because of possible brain injuries?My career and most of my hobbies revolve around using my brain effectively and I want to grow old practicing them.However, I recently started boxing twice a week and although I love every second of it and the conditioning it provides me, we finally got to laying blows on each other during sparring at my gym, and although not too hard or painful, punches to the head were enough to cause light nosebleeds and rattle brain cases.Should I be scared of any serious damage?
>>111748If you like those other things more than boxing, yes. There's no reason for a twice-a-week hobbyist to involve himself in hard sparring. You will accrue damage over time sparring in the manner most boxing gyms encourage. It's not easy to find sparring partners in boxing who can legitimately light spar. You might want to consider just hanging on the sides while others spar, or you can join a kickboxing or muay thai gym where sparring is usually much lighter.
Learning boxing from an MMA trainer, bad idea?
>>84845That is one thing I love about boxing that I feel it doesn't get enough credit for in the world of martial arts.Whole fucking world of Asian martial arts has you doing this dumbshit intercepting crap that just outright does not work. You ain't intercepting shit. Meanwhile boxers are just like... Why let that shit touch you at all? I don't usually like weeb shit but there's a clip from baki that explains pretty well how boxing defense is perfect if done right.Even blocking in boxing is superior to asian intercepting bullshit. You can way more effectively tank a shot by covering up than by trying to swat shit away and opening yourself up.Angle+slip+a good Philly shell and you practically invulnerable. Maybe throw in shin blocks from muay thai and now you're just downright fucking annoying to fight cause everything either gets efficiently tanked or just doesn't even touch you.>tl;dr intercepting blocks are a meme
>>111790>I don't usually like weeb shit but there's a clip from baki that explains pretty well how boxing defense is perfect if done right
How much do head guards protect the brain? I want to get into this and do sparring but I also don't want to become a low iq retard after a year of training.
>>112701just do it pussy youre not going to get cte from casually training as a hobbyist
>>112711Your drool-spotted comment hardly inspires confidence.
You're right though, I'm no pussy. I'm going to train this until my first concussion,
>>112712>>112713do it pussy you wont
>>112714>>112714Oh yeah? I'll beat your ass motherfucker
>>112715>Oh yeah? I'll beat yo-*heems you*
>>111790checking kicks is very difficult and ineffective if you stand and slip like a boxer, especially if you're using a philly shell. Also, boxers parry and redirect punches quite frequently.That's what the philly shell is all about. Defense is very different in gigantic boxing gloves vs bare-handed. Covering up doesn't really work that effectively without big cushions on your hands.>>112701Headgear does not protect the brain. It prevents cuts and bruises and makes everyone watching you spar feel more comfortable. The only way to prevent brain damage is to join a boxing gym that doesn't frequently spar hard, which is unfortunately rare. Boxers tend to spar at near full intensity. You might be better off at a Muay Thai/Kickboxing/MMA gym. That being said, your cognitive function takes a very long time to decline, even if you spar hard and frequently, and the extent to which your brain is damaged is largely determined by genetics. Some people get punch drunk much more quickly than others.
>>112742>Some people get punch drunk much more quickly than others.Is it obvious early on if this is the case?
>>112752By the time you will notice it will have been too late. Irreversible damage. Don't join a pure boxing gym, they're filled with retards. Not worth it if you don't intend to compete professionally.

Hello box bros. Watched some russian school of boxing videos after >>88158 recommended, saw this video: https://youtu.be/fyUVogoVwqc. The second punch he throws I've never seen in boxing before, looks like a weird supinated hook. Seen it in sambo before, but mostly as straights and only to get you in grappling range. What the fuck is this? Is this an actual punch thats thrown? Feels weird and a lot less powerful than a normal hook.
>>113909Pretty sure its mainly just a point boxing style jab, where your trying to just offset your opponents retaliation, like a double jab.
what is the most based punch and why is it the overhand right?
>>114162Nah it’s the offensive check hook
I've been training boxing/kickboxing for five months now at a local MMA gym, and last saturday I sparred with a guy from another town who's been doing muay thai for 4 months, and he absolutely wrecked me in kickboxing and boxing. It's really making me doubt the quality and volume of striking instruction I'm getting because my gym has more of an MMA focus and one of the boxing coaches I train with most is about 60 with a Karate (okinawa and kenpo) background. The gym is also pretty expensive, about $120 a month and I have to drive across town to get to it, there's no other options for competitive adult boxing gyms in town, so I'm thinking about just giving up on boxing, at least for the time being. Is it worth sticking to it even if I feel like I'm getting crap quality and quantity of training for a pretty considerable time and money commitment?
Gifted kicker that never learned to throw a decent punch here.Though I know the correct form to throw a punch, I feel 0 power on them even though I'm pretty strong (pic rel).One thing I noticed is that I'm always very loose on the ground so I don't have a strong base, so my question is: are you supposed to use the ground when throwing a punch? Like, planting yourself firm on the ground to have your stance get hard when the punch connects, y'know?. Do you think that is my problem? I have heard some coaches teach footwork where you stay always on the tip toes so I'm not sure if that's the problem. Any tips on increasing punching power, thanks.
>>115296Are you Ukrainian? Saw a guy on /fit/ who who looks like you
>>115296Yeah you're supposed to 'sit' on your punches. Obviously this rule can be broken as you get better, but generally you want to be light on your feet when you move around and jab, sit on your combination, then move your head, pivot, etc, get back on your toes.
>>114936It's better than nothing, and 120 is cheap for an mma gym. You might be better off just taking their grappling classes though.You must also keep in mind that the guy you fought might be more talented than you, more athletic, his style might just happen to counter yours, etc. Don't immediately blame your gym. Most mma gyms have a stronger focus on grappling, because it's far more important than striking. Just by being in an mma gym, I'd bet that you could take down and control that MT guy pretty easily.
>>115296mirin physique.Punching power is about weight transfer. You are transferring weight from your back leg to your front leg with the punch. Its why people are taught to twist their back foot while throwing a straight. doing so drills that weight transfer while making sure you are balanced. You start the movement with your back foot planted and end the movement with your front foot planted. An exaggerated version of this (to understand the principle) would be if you balanced completely on your back foot with your front foot up in the air and then as you threw the punch, transferred your weight and ended with your back foot in the air and your front foot taking all of your weight. This obviously isnt how you'd train or throw a punch but you understand using this example that this is how power transfer happens in a punch. It is how you're throwing your bodyweight forwards. It is actually how Deontay Wilder throws a lot of his haymaker shots, with his back foot ending up in the air.But a good technique would to be to take this principle and dial it back in able to maintain balance and have a responsible defence.

hey OP, can I get a new link I just started boxing and have been looking for a place to talk with with boxers outside the gym

>>96310yes its real head movement. if your opponent does that in a fight and the ref doesnt stop him, what are you gonna do? cry? you need to learn how to deal with everything. what happens if youre fighting a guy whos a foot shorter than you and is just naturally that low? punching down is an art in itself, there are right and wrong ways to do it

>>118196Strengthen your forearms/wrists with exercises specifically for them, do pushups on your front two knuckles, make sure you wrap your wrists heavy with your wristwraps, and do a few very light rounds on the bag with no gloves.

Can someone help me understand something. I'm still newer however I thought you are supposed to avoid putting your weight forward as much as possible, and keep it on your back foot.When I watch any of Andrew Tate's fights, he seems to always have weight forward, and even seems almost off balance a lot. Obviously you can't be perfect but this seems almost all throughout all his fights.Is this due to it being kickboxing, him being just really tall, or is it just down to bad technique? Because he seems to do decent in the ring overall, but this has always stuck out to me. But I seen Tony Jefferies review, and comments and stuff and I never see anybody mentiom this, so I'm genuinely curious.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTXLMZcGG_8
>>127714bad technique and he only fights bums, a lot of boxers think they can just brute force it and unfortunately, they succeed a lot of the time
>>127747Are you actually seeing what I am seeing though in the videos?And like I said I just find it funny how I have not seen anyone else bring this up in the comments, or the review video Tony Jefferies did. Like if I as a newer person am seeing something like this, I would expect it to be blatantly obvious to someone experienced.. which is why I'm wondering if it is intentional in some sense and not actually bad technique.
>>127714bad technique I guess. In kickboxing you should stand light on the front foot to check low kicks (and not get ur knee bent backwards by oblique or knee teep) or at least 50-50 if you're boxing heavy. His style is some weird amalgamation, sometimes you see him philly-shelled (great way to get kicked), sometimes you see him high guard but stand tall (but front foot heavy makes him a bit harder to knock back).Higher weightclasses are always like this, less competitors plus raw power gets them way too far compared to lower weightclasses
>>84845I think my rotator cuff is torn a bit, I can feel dullness in the area after doing 10-20 pushups. I've tried staying off exercise for 6 months in the past and it didn't help. How fucked am I? Going into yoga soon but I might just try boxing southpaw.

>>94811hey there, thanks so much for this!would you happen to have anymore? and on that note is there some library that lists these torrents?id love to chat with you too in private if possible
I just got clocked hard in sparring today, I have pain on left jaw joint. But what I'm worried about is that I can't bite properly anymore. The right side makes contact first. Does this go away or do I need a doctor to relocate my jaw?
>>130841Happens to me all the time, you probably already had it go away but if it happens again i recommend chewing gum which helps alleviate the pain faster. Also make sure your mouth guard is properly molded to ur teeth and bite down hard on that fucker when u see a barrage coming
I'm visiting this boxing gym with a coach once a week. I was really enthusiastic and really loved it, but now the honeymoon phase ended and I don't know anymore. I love hitting the heavy bag, but I don't know whether or not I'm making any progress. But even if I did, I'm not sure anymore where I want to get with it. Trying out sparring one day would be nice, but in this gym there's none of that. Even guys who are there for years don't spar. But even if I could I've realized I'd be really scared of head injuries. Should I be happy for my weekly cardio? I was thinking about trying out something which involves more contact but without involving the head like wrestling or bjj, but leaving my coach behind doesn't feel right.

>>131937keep your fucking hands up and stop moving them around when they're up, a good boxer will just time you and slip a punch in when you do it. also take your feet through more with your punches. you control the centre of the ring well, potential there to be a good pressure fighter.
>>129068I like to hit the double end bag and the speed bag bare handed. Only put on gloves for the heavy bag personally.
Anyone box with bad knees? Have had my second knee injury now due to bad luck and now might want to switch to something with as little focus on legs as possible. I know there's pivoting in boxing but not to the degree of knee-destroying
>>84845Any fast ways to overcome the fear of punching? I am a newbie, 3 month into boxing classes for 2 days a week. This month had my first light sparring where we dont go full force and I kinda less afraid of recieving a punch than throwing one. I didnt had a lot of fights when I was a kid and I kind of was expecting to be more afraid of getting punched than hitting someone. Any ideas on that or I just wait until it eventually goes off by just practicing?
>>131463>Even guys who are there for years don't spar. Nigga what ? What do you mean ? You mean no hard sparring or no kind of sparring ?No body/shoulder sparring ? No light sparring ?
>>97732this is why white collar boxing is so retarded. ive never heard of it without half the class being full of smurfs looking to get their feet wet with a bunch of randomers who've never thrown a punch oncei mean i dont blame you but still, good to get experience and all but the culture is so retarded
>>131463once a week is too few to make noticeable progress and if the gym doesn't have a healthy amateur scene don't even bother
So I've started out in martial arts a couple weeks ago with no experience. Kickboxing and Muay thai to be precise but my boxing fundamentals suck on both of those.I've been to 3 sparring sessions and I started to notice some things I do wrong but I have no idea how to improve on them>get easily overwhelmed by combos>get tired ridiculously easily sometimes can't even keep my guard up>punches somehow slip through even though I close my guard so much I can't see the opponent>keep closing my eyes when getting punched>keep getting punched in the abdomen>can't throw out anything besides weak jabs that just bounce off the opponent's gloves>knees and heels hurt after sparring sessions Why is it so hard bros, I never imagined it would be like this watching boxing matches and UFC fights.
>>134870take a boxing class you muppet. and most importantly LOOSEN UP. breathe, relax, dont tighten until you shoot.
>>134870Did you think all of it came naturally moron ?Go take some classes and you’ll get better after training drills, combos and whatever
I just can't stop dropping my right hand (I'm southpaw) when I throw a straight ffs
Alright gamerss Im going to play my first novice game in the next 20 days so Im preparing for that. Ive been training boxing for 4 months ongoing now and theres this guy at the gym thats been training for even less than that. So ive sparred with him for a couple of rounds.Not to suck my own dick and sound like an abnoxious faggot but i would say >i have better form than him whenever throwing punches>he overstreches and disbalances himself with every punch >turns his whole body around showing his back while he throws a hook and misses >his hooks arent even proper hooks its halfway between a straight and a hook >his punches are push punches >I would even say I have better cardio than him because he breathes heavy on the later rounds and keeps his hands down but regardless all this he still hits me like 10 times more than I hit him. I see this mistakes in him but I cant utilize it to my advantage. In mitt work and bags i can work faster and better than him but I cant do the same in sparring sessions. My coach keeps urging me to go in and hit him because I play too passive but he somehow outboxes me and stuns me. My head still hurts from todays sparring session. What exactly am I doing wrong here? He is only an inch shorter than me at most and he always seems to be out of range but manages to hit me. I dont try and hit him in the head because hes gonna get his guard up and my punches are going to be useless. Going for the body is ineffective unless I move in which if I do he manages to outbox me (again). The only way I have landed punches at him are when he comes close and I manage to barely get a counter off. Also I dont think I can see punches coming at me. What can I do to fix this? He combos me if he gets too close to me and have to keep my guard my constantly yet I never seem to be able to hit him back because he just steps away.Am I overthinking this. Is fear of getting hit back preventing me from landing punches? what do?
I'm planning on joining a boxing gym near my office since it's the only real combat sports place in the entire CBD for some reason. I'm not overweight, but I am very unfit. I lift twice a week but haven't done any cardio for 9 months or so. should I work on getting my cardio up to a basic level (like being able to run 8km without stopping) before joining?
>>135121Just had an experience like this recently, a newbie outlanding me despite me being better, the main problem I had (and I'm assuming you had as well) was trying to adjust to the opponents awkward timing and punches. The best advice I can give is to not overcomplicate things, it doesnt matter if he gaurds up when you throw to his head because as long as your jab and cross are landing on his guard then a hook to the body, upper cut, or even a cross to the body will have a good chance of landing. And if hes backing away a bunch then try your best to cut off the ring rather than just following him. Tl;dr relax, stick to the basics and have fun :)
>>137155Most gyms will build up your cardio if you're a beginner, but running to get your cardio up is a good idea. You might as well make running a habit as well.
I've started doing cardio boxing class, it's not shit, it's reaaaally hard workout and then we do technique with professionals. But my stamina is so bad, feels like I'm at 0 and barely improving. I know it's just been few weeks but I wonder where I'll be in 3 months. My main goal is to move up from carido to normal boxing class but man, having never trained cardio (just strength training in the gym) is bad...And I wonder if I add 3 more days of gym on top of 3 cardio days will it fuck me up due to being overworked, I wouldn't go ham at the gym but just some strength training and bit more cardio to build my stamina up.
Guys, I'm shit at boxingWhat can I do to improve by myself ?
Daily training routines? How do you break down skill development?
>>137927I don’t I just go to the classes and train
does anyone know anyone who is boxing despite very poor vision? although you can correct it it still makes you quote on quote significantly more likely to have retina detachment from a blow to the head, does anyone know anyone who boxes in spite of that and has done okay t. someone with -8 diopter who probably should never get involved but i still really want to
Can the philly shell work against a trained fighter in a street fight? Is the closed stance too weak against leg kicks and takedowns?
>>137648I decided to add these 3 days of gym, I'll focus on strength training (but not go overboard as I'm losing weight atm) and I'll do some liss cardio before/after to hopefully help not be dying in cardio boxing. My goal is to move up to beginner kickboxing group and not just be stuck in cardio oneI know there are no shortcuts but man I wish I could work 24 7 to get there faster hah

>>84845>get brain damage
>>135121Maybe his timing needs to be interrupted. I would throw more jabs, like Bicol, mix it up downstairs and upstairs. Flick it but if you have a good jab put sporadically weight into it to keep him uncertain
>>139038I love stiff jabs so much.>>138930>Round 1Should drill some pendulum, you're both quite flat-footed.Red trunks going Philly shell didn't make much sense there but good they're comfortable to try things out.Rip the camera.>Round 2You went outside?Should get some chalk to draw on the ground so you don't go outside the camera's frame.Both of your rear hands are dropping too low, fighting at range in open stance you need every bit of reach you can get.Red trunks should learn engages\advances that aren't just bull rushes, try sneaking the front foot forward and doing distance slips. Black trunks needs to jab more with that reach advantage.> Round 3Red trunks keeps going low way too far out, should just keep a high guard. Also needs to parry less and closer to their guard, jabbing the opponent's hand as it comes out is asking to get counter punched. Black trunk's work was good here, they could work in more lead hooks.> Round 4More Philly shell from Red, learn to block body shots with your elbows, you're not fast enough to do the Mayweather jab.Nice ringmanship from Black, but needs to throw more combos here as Red's clearly gassed from those bullrushes earlier.> Round 5Nicer footwork from Red, jumping too much though, just bop. Black should double up their jabs, or try sticky jabs. Red's guarding much better here.> Round 6It's the next day? Bit misleading naming these sequential rounds as they look to be different sessions on different days. Nice feints by red, good way to deal with the reach disadvantage. There was a nice shoulder roll or two in there. Rear hand in a better spot for Black, Red's hands too low again.Thanks for sharing. Consider getting a tripod for your phone. Also consider one or both of you swapping stances sometimes, open tactics are quite different to closed, and both of you being in your unnatural stance is always a laugh.
>>137965You should just train Judo. Any boxer would just get slammed on their head and knocked out if they came up against a skilled judoka. You’re wasting your time boxing if you care abo it defending yourself.
is 19 too late to start boxing?ive been told i should have started at 12 or 13
>>139813Yes, train Judo instead. It’s harder and more technical, but actually works in self-defence.
>>139655Thanks for the analysis. We sparred again. (Im the red trunks white guy) and I decided to try a new strat. It didn't go well. My opponent made a change too he threw a lot more volume.I learned so much from these rounds we did together. Ive actually completely adjusted my entire fight strategy Im going to stop shadowing like a taller fighter that has the luxury of fighting off the back foot and Im going to pretty much spend 90% of my time coming forwards.BTW this was all filmed on the same day its just that we got kicked out of a boxing gym for boxing, which is quite ironic.https://youtu.be/J7EdEypqJgc
>>139854>we got kicked out of a boxing gymTrain Judo, it’s actually applicable to real life and isn’t some pussy shit where you rely on a ref to seperate your clinch.
>>139877Were you bullied as a teen thats why you train for self defense? I just happen to like boxing as a sport. Im fascinated by all the styles and strategies, that's why I box.We are not the same.You dumb retard. You big dumb dumb. Ass wipe. Shit ass poop ass whackjob ass nugget
>>139877a 1-2 will take you to the moon and back in terms of self defence; if you come across someone who trains a more rounded martial art and you two end up fighting then you're both niggers and bad examples of each martial art.
How do I find a good boxing gym to learn near me?
>>140433Look for the blackest, niggest, most ghetto gym you can find and go there
>>140443lmao unironically true
>>140443Im trying to stay away from niggers though
19 years old recently started muay thai im trying to work on getting better straight punches and better boxing technique overallhow to improve https://youtu.be/pEim3qBWuw8 [Embed] [Embed] [Embed]
>thumb up hook for short range>thumb sideways hook for long rangethat's what feels most comfortable to me, should I only do one of the types, though? I notice that gazelle hooks are usually thrown with the thumb up but this may be due to the types of hooks being semi specific to a country's style of boxing (gazelle hooks are an american invention)
>>135121unironically exchange with him. if your technique is so much better you will win 9/10 exchanges
>>135121Your opponent looks a lot like me anon. I would also like to hear who has the best footwork anon but with what you have already told i might give you some advice. You said that you don't punch him in the head because he will cover up, even if that happens you should use your jab to weaken him since he looks like the agressive type of boxer since he hits you a lot and breathes hard and has his defense low on the later rounds, When he is near you try to block him before he lands on you like grabbing his punch like you do in the training sessions with a partner, this will give you a chance to strike back. Pivot more with your back foot to get out of his range also. Since you have better cardio than him try to fight him when he gets close, by reasoning you should win a exhange of punches just by cardio and height unless he is the typical shortie muscular then you should aim for weakening him from the distance with the jabs. If he tries to get close with a tackle while his guard is up use a straight right and end the combination with a left hook while at the same time moving or sliding to his left side and making a direct hit on the left part of his face or a direct left and viceversa.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8-gqQ3_l9wAlways keep your guard up and move your foot a little not too much if you don't want to get exhasusted quick. Fight relaxed, a tense body won't help you hit stronger and have fun don't focus on winning or losing the sparring match just do your best. That is all i can suggest you anon sorry if some things are mispelled or bad explained, hope this and the others anons advice help you out.
I'm 21 and want to take up boxing, any advice for someone starting out? Also worth mentioning that I'm left handed bit for some reason, idk if it's normal, I can punch faster as well as harder with the left hand. Is it better to stick with southpaw stance or try my hand with switch style?
>>145628First of all anon i will told you what my trainer told me on my first day, are you black? are you millionaire or do you have a record of 50 - 0? Then don't try out advanced boxing skills like letting your guard down, focus on learning the basics and after some time you can try other stances or tactics. So after this anon when you join a gym they will ask you if you are left handed or right handed, don't tell them that you can with both because they will probably laugh at you or look at you like a weirdo. When you go to sign up don't get intimidated by the guys in there every gym is like a family some with people that are more normal and others that are a little more aggresive. For example the gym where i do train is located in an industrial park and the people that train there are bikers, policemen and security guards from nightclubs so they tend to be more aggresive in sparring. Wether you would like to compete or to get in shape look for a gym that is more family friendly (if you want to get in shape only) these gyms are the typical that apart from doing boxing works like a normal gym or a only boxing gym (if you would like to compete) these types of gyms are perfect to compete since they only focus on boxing. I would suggest that you get a jumping rope since they are used in the training before putting the gloves on, also since you are starting ask your trainer what boxing gloves you need or if you are confident enough go to a boxing store and ask there what boxing gloves are better for a begginer however be careful since they might trick you with prices. When you start in boxing don't feel ashamed to do worse than the rest on the gym you are new and everyone have to start like you before, also don't try to fast things up and learn little by little don't try outsmart your trainer on learning focus on learning the basics WELL DONE. If you would like to compete it takes about 3 months since you start boxing vs people.
>>145751Beware that if your ask your trainer to fight he might give you a fight vs a person in one month meaning they are sending you to boost someone local record so i suggest you to don't ask him to compete after 3 months of boxing so they don't send you to trick fights, a friend of mine that was very skilled was send off last month to a fight in another city and the other opponent with a record of 10 - 0 broke his fucking arm so beware anon. Before joining a gym look a the opinions on internet since some boxing gyms don't give a shit about new boxers that start at old age so they might use a boxer that has some time in there to teach you and they won't like to waste their time on you and you had to learn by yourself. For last you should join a gym that are multicultural friendly i tried in the past to join a russian gym but they were very rude and told to leave so watch out joining an only russian gym or black gym since they are pretty racist and only want people of their "own race" to join there.
What's the best way to improve hand speed? Can a cruiserweight still punch as quick as greased lightning?
>>145924Look up tennis ball drills for hand speed and coordination
>enter new gym>see women training there>leave and never come back
>>146028there's a girl at the gym I box at who also does boxing, pretty cute and short blonde haired. doesn't say a word to anyone, just boxes. pretty cool.
I want to improve my cardio and move up to amateur/recreational level.Currently I'm in cardio boxing class that lasts and hour and every time I'm drenched and dead, my heart feels like exploding, my stamina is -1000, I can't fully follow, I gotta take breaks etc. I know keeping at it is the solution but the class is expensive and I wonder if I can do some running and alone exercise to boost my stamina because I feel terrible at these classes. I'm really out of shape (not physically but stamina wise) and I'm not sure what to do. Add running, byciling on off days? I also do 3 gym days without going all out just to improve strength bit by bit plus additional cardio for 30ish minutes.What else can I do?
^ no advice? I'm just getting tired of this group class since I feel like I'm far behind and not getting what I need, I'd rather focus on it on my own and get cardio/stamina up as best and as fast as I can, just need some advice on how except liis/hiit running/cycling etc.
>>146597I train Boxing, Muay Thai, and BJJ and the biggest contributor to good cardio is as follows:make sure you're getting enough sleep, eating good food at the right times, hydrating with electrolytes and breathing properly. Make sure you're not tense in your stance as that'll cause you to gas out.
Just ordered a pair of oldschool 4 oz bag mitts for like 20 bucks.Before this I punched the bag with fucking old gardening gloves to get the most feedback and not peel my knuckles.I wonder what fighting with these instead of full size gloves would feel like.
>>111790To be fair, those boxing blocking techniques stop working the moment you fight with your bare knuckles though. In real life, if you see someone in for example, a peekaboo stance, you can easily "sneak" your fist between his and hit him on the nose or chin.Also, there is intercepting and parrying in boxing. Counterpunching is a way you can intercept your opponent, and the more "defensive" type of boxing gloves are bigger and rounder than say, the offense focused Mexican type gloves which are distinctly "flat". The roundness helps you making your opponent's fist slide off the "center line" into the air, which is literally what parrying is.
I like boxing and tried to actually do it when I was 16 but dropped out cause the gym was kinda lame and I was scared of brain damage (also cause I'm a lazy bastard). Only sparred lightly once and never hit or got hit hard enough for it to matter. I am currently 23 and basically just fuck around with a quite light and soft boxing bag at home (The bag is only 20kg).Is it true that bare knuckle fighting has way less brain damage involved than using gloves?https://www.mmafighting.com/2020/12/11/22163586/bkfc-sense-of-vindication-study-showed-bare-knuckle-fights-lower-concussion-rate-than-mma-or-boxingMaybe sparring wearing thin oldschool bag mitts without any tape is the solution. Fighters won't break each other's faces and they won't go for the head full force in fear of fucking up their hands.
>>111790>Whole fucking world of Asian martial arts has you doing this dumbshit intercepting crap that just outright does not work. You ain't intercepting shit.This exists in boxing, you just suck at it
WowCan't wait for Haney vs RollyFuture fight of the century for sure
>>147148>inb4 manny v floyd all over again
>>146870Sparring without gloves is the most retarded shit I’ve read hereWhy would you risk fucking up your face for basically nonexistent risks of brain damage
>>147177Scars make you look like a warrior tho.
Boxing was officially nailed in the casket with this haney decision
I don't have access to my boxing gym anymoreAny tips/material on how to structure my solo boxing workouts ? I have a bag
