Frequently Asked Questions

What is professional and amateur boxing?

Amateur boxing is typically focused more on the sport aspect, with an emphasis on skill, technique, and points scored rather than knockouts. It is usually shorter and requires headgear. Professional boxing is a full time career that involves longer rounds and no headgear. It also places a higher emphasis on power, knockouts, and more powerful punches.

What are common mistakes beginners make in boxing?

Overextending the punches is a common mistake. Other mistakes include dropping the hands, not recognizing defense, holding your breath, ignoring footwork and focusing on power instead of technique. A qualified coach can help you identify and correct these errors early on to prevent them from becoming habits.

What is the proper stance in boxing?

Standing with feet shoulder width apart and your lead foot in front, while the rear foot is at a 45 degree angle, you are assuming the classic boxing stance. The weight of your body should be evenly distributed between your toes and knees. Hands up for protection of your face. Elbows tucked under to protect the torso.

Is sparring necessary for beginners in boxing?

Beginners should not spar immediately. It is best to wait until you have a firm foundation and are fit enough. Under the supervision of a trainer and wearing appropriate protective gear, sparring is vital for safety and learning.

How To

Cross Punch: Mastering the Cross Punch in Boxing

The cross is the next important punch after the jab. In your boxing stance pivot your rear leg to allow your hips and shoulders to move forward. Simultaneously, throw your rear hand straight towards the target, rotating your fist so the palm faces the ground. Keep the lead hand close to your face. It is important to maintain balance and speed in order to avoid being left exposed.
