Boxing Training Tips: How To Ingrain Skill


I always start young kids or any age student on defensive drills such as parrying here before getting in the ring.
It teaches technique in a controlled setting, no sloppy over excited punches that program garbage technique in the cns.
Keep in mind, all these movements are creating new wiring in the brain, engrams to put it correctly, which are stored movement patterns in the brain.

The students can learn defensive skills in a non threatening controlled setting, creating skill, solid clean motor engrams.
Then when it comes time to spar they aren’t freaked out with punches coming at them. And they will have a skill set developed both offensively and defensively to display in clean sparring sessions. Preventing sparring from looking like sloppy wild tough man type sparring.
Every movement in the gym is being stored in the CNS, the repetitions must be good as it takes over 7000 repetitions to correct a faulty pattern and instill a new motor engram, which as we know it is great looking crisp technique.
This is just how we do it in our gym, I’m not saying I’m right I’m explaining the rationale on why we do what we do and what we are doing exactly does.
