There are seven kinds of punches: Left Hook, Right Hook, Uppercut, Cross, Straight, Overhand and Underhand. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches are more powerful than others. For example, an uppercut is a powerful punch. On the other hand, a straight punch requires less power but it is faster than other punches.
There are also many combinations. These are combinations of punches which work together to achieve a goal. One combination can have many parts. An example of this is a left hook, followed by a right crossing. This will damage the opponent’s jaw.
A boxer uses his body to protect himself against attacks. He does this by using his legs, arms, elbows, hands, knees and feet.
Boxers should use the legs to protect themselves against kicks. If he gets kicked, he raises one leg and turns away from his attacker. To avoid being kicked on his side, he will bend his knees if the attack is from the front. But if the attack comes in the back, he will stand straight and block the kick using his foot.
Elbow strikes are very effective because they inflict much pain. An elbow strike can be delivered either directly or indirectly. Directly means that your opponent is hit with your forearm. However, indirectly means that your elbow strike is delivered with another part or your arm.
Boxers use their hands as a shield against incoming punches. Boxers use their hands to stop incoming punches. They raise their fists up above their heads and move towards the attack. They then make contact with their attacker’s fist.
When receiving a blow to the stomach, abdomen or chest, a boxer should bend his knees to absorb the impact. A lot of boxers use knee strikes to defend themselves.
A boxer should take control of an attack and respond with counter-attacks. This will allow him to gain distance from his opponent. A boxer must also maintain his balance when responding to an opponent’s counter-attack.
A boxer must have a stance in order to be effective at boxing. His stance will determine how he defends. It dictates how he places his body and faces his opponent. Boxers have many options for stances. These are some of our most favorite:

The timing of each individual punch affects the effectiveness or failure of a combination. A combination of strong and weak punches will produce a good result.
Sparring is a practice session designed to improve boxing skills . During sparring sessions, a boxer trains his mind as well as his body. The purpose of sparring is, in short, to learn how fight and not get hurt.
