Boxing is one of the oldest and most popular combat sports. In this sport, it is not about your feelings; it is about your performance. Perhaps you have been going for boxing classes and training for a while now, but you are not sure about your performance. Well, you are not alone.
Everyone encounters this phase. Training to become a boxer takes effort, discipline, and dedication. But, if you want to improve as a boxer in days, you need to box as much as you can.
It is not only about having a desire to punch anything. It is indeed a lot more than that. You have to outlast your opponent till the bitter end. Furthermore, you have to
learn the defense to not get hit. All these small details matter. In fact, on an advanced levels, the professional trainers in the MMA schools train you how to take a hit too and still come out victorious on the other end.
There is a lot more details that demands utter attention from you. You have to show unbounded passion, and determination to learn this wild sport.
I agree, Malcolm Gladwell said that it takes roughly 10,000 hours of practice to achieve mastery. But, what if I say you can do that in just 30 days? Yes, only 30 days! It is true. If you can focus on just three steps, you can skip that awkward phase of beginning and fight like a professional.
Now, of course, it is a long road to have knocked out counters as second nature, but these below tips will help you to hit more opponents and at least get a bachelor’s degree in the boxing club. You’ll be treated with respect & as a tough opponent.
Master Boxing Combinations… In order to win fights, learn how to throw flawless punching combinations. If you can deliver a smooth, killer combination, you can even trouble a professional MMA fighter. The more swift and complicated your combinations are, the more it is tough for the rival to tackle them.
You should master your combinations to the point where you can execute them going forwards, backwards, sideways, and with your eyes closed. Practice as many angles as you can. Once you have a winning combination, keep on working on its accuracy, power, and speed. These three things can make any combination deadly and more explosive, and give you an exceptional KO rate in fights.
Defensive Boxing Strategy… Defense is the key that helps you to stay in the ring till the last second. When you stay in the ring, you have all the opportunities to avert the damage and deliver maximum accurate blows. Most amateurs avoid learning defensive boxing strategy. And, that’s why they are always vulnerable in the ring.
Their opponents dominate them and knock them out rather comfortably. Learning defensive strategies help you to stay calm, getting back up, and fighting back. You regain confidence even in front of the toughest competitor. Your defense makes him agitated and compels him to lose control.
Improve Footwork… In boxing, you perhaps think your hands are the most important factors. But, this isn’t true. Your footwork is indeed the most crucial thing. It helps you to dictate the pace of the fight. If you can move your feet properly and speedily, you can have the balance and stability that allows you to defend and attack with power.
The professional trainers believe that footwork is what makes great boxers stand out from good boxers. That’s why they always force you to work on footwork in boxing. As they perceive the real power doesn’t come through your arms. It actually comes through your legs. If you can move around a ring with a lightning speed, you can become a potent attacking force.
Head Movement... Sadly, it is a lost art. But, it is the most important one. If you can learn the movement of head in the early stages, you can be a tough competitor even for the pro ring champions. Blocking or covering head with hands can perhaps save you from save hard hits.
However, you can still get your bell rung. The fully-trained boxers, who step inside the ring with dangerous boxers, perceive the importance of head. They know it is better to miss the hit entirely rather than blocking it. Muhammad Ali was the best in it. We have seen several videos of him in which he missed many straight hits from the opponents only through head movements.
You can learn this art too. In boxing, the head movement happens in 4 specific ways - T, V, C, and B. Having command on B is the toughest thing.
Learn Dance... Now, I'm not talking about that specific dance! And, it is not about the footwork either. I mean dancing in the ring where your entire body is involved, even if you are standing on one place. It is all about tilting your body from left to right, deceiving the opponent through sudden hip movements, and et cetera.
Though, there are lots of pro boxers who are very fragile in the ring today, but again my award goes to Muhammad Ali. He was the best in manipulating his opponents. He knew how to divert their attention through sudden movements and land the punch straightaway on their faces to knock them out. In case you are thinking, is it tough to have command on this kind of mobility?
Well, it is not. If you'd practice this from the beginning, you will make much harder for the opponents to hit you... As Muhammad Ali said too, 'Float like a Butterfly, Sting like a Bee.'
Next time you are watching a professional fight on TV, notice how the professional boxers fight. They don’t just throw one punch or move around the ring without purpose. They’ve very calculated moves that assist them to win fights. So, if you want to get better in boxing in 30 days, master only three things – punch combination, defense strategy, and footwork.
