Boxing Training Tips: How To Ingrain Skill

KIDS

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.

Boxing Defense Tips: Mike Tyson Defense Highlights.

Tyson’s underrated defense fed his offense, particularly his power, his defense created the explosive opportunities for his touch of sleep what the hell just happened power. ooh at the knockdown at the 2:16 mark of this clip, slip, pivot with the feet, the wide opening for the the punch Quick Tillis didn’t see coming.

That was Cus’ brilliance, to set binding offense up with elusively defying defense, to land precise punches opponents simply could not see coming. Mike just didn’t mindlessly punch and hack away. He set his violent hands up with movement, head, torso, and feet. The D’Amato system was built on science of movement, position, and precise calculation of timing. A vintage Tyson was a brilliant reflection of Cus’ system and impact on boxing. Enjoy this clip.

Boxing Training Tip: A Neglected Weapon Against Southpaws.

I was watching Frankie Liles vs Tim Littles and Bobby Czyz made a great point, many orthodox fighters think the straight right hand is the key to southpaws while
Other fighters think the left hook is. In my opinion the left hook is an overlooked weapon against southpaws and it works well with a lazy southpaw jab to time it and come over it as Cotto did against Martinez dropping him hard which set the tone and eventual end of their fight.

The left hook works well with southpaws and besides, southpaws know the right hand is coming for them. You can also use nice left right left combos to capitalize on the left hook. Look beyond the right hand for scoring options against southpaws.
