Punching Techniques

There are seven types of punches available: Left Hook and Right Hook, Cross, Cross, Straight, Underhand, Overhand, Cross, Straight, Cross, Straight, Cross, Straight, and Overhand. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches require more force than others. For example, an uppercut is a powerful punch.

There are also many combinations. These are combinations that combine punches to accomplish a particular goal. One combination can have many parts. For example, a left hook followed by a right cross will cause damage to the opponent’s jaw.

Guard Techniques

A boxer protects himself by using his body. He does this using his legs and arms, elbows as well as hands, knees and feet.

Legs

To defend against kicks, a boxer should use his legs. If he gets kicked, he raises one leg and turns away from his attacker. If the attacker is coming from the front, he will bend at the knees to avoid getting kicked on either side. He will block the kick with his foot if the attack is coming from behind.

Elbows

Because elbow strikes inflict a lot of pain, they are very effective. You can deliver an elbow strike directly or indirectly. Directly means that you hit your opponent with your forearm while indirectly means that you hit him with another part of your arm.

Hands

Boxers use their hands to block incoming blows. They raise their fists high above their heads and point them in the direction of an attack. Then they make contact with the attacker’s fist.

Knees

A boxer should bend his knees in order to absorb any blows to his stomach, abdomen, chest or stomach. Knee strikes can be used to defend yourself.

Feet

A boxer should take control of an attack and respond with counter-attacks. This allows him to put distance between himself, his opponent, and the ring. A boxer must also maintain his balance when responding to an opponent’s counter-attack.

Stances

Boxing is only possible if a boxer has a clear stance. The way he defends himself will be determined by his stance. It determines his position and the direction he will face. Boxers can take many different stances. These are some of our most favorite:

  • Low stance
  • High stance
