Boxing TechniquesBoxing techniques, boxing advice, and boxing instructions to help all boxers train and perfect their boxing skills to become a stronger, more powerful, and faster boxer. Great technique should improve effectiveness and efficiency. Great fighting techniques are focused on improving performance as opposed to be limited by rules and forms. Every fighter and fighting situation is different requiring mastery of many techniques. There are no such things as the "best fighting techniques", there are only good applications. Technique in itself is not so much what you do, but how you use it.

Pro Boxing Techniques

How do pro boxers fight?

  • What techniques do pros use that amateurs don’t?
  • What are some special things that only pros do?
  • What are the things that pros do really well?

I’ve put together a list of key fighting techniques that I’ve seen in practically all professional boxers but rarely in amateur boxers. Many of these special techniques are subtle and require truly refined skills that can only be developed through years of training. They are very hard to see and even harder to do. I share them to the best of my ability for your enjoyment and perhaps future boxing inspiration.

Here they are: 10 POPULAR pro boxing techniques! [Click to read more…]

Vertical punches vs Horizontal punches

Should you punch with a horizontal fist or a vertical fist?

  • Which is more powerful?
  • Which is faster?
  • Which is BETTER?

It depends on who you ask. Some trainers say you should punch with a horizontal fist. Some trainers say you should punch with a vertical fist. Factor in the various punching techniques from martial artists, kickboxers, and other kinds of fighting styles and you’ll hear a dozen more conflicting views.

I’ve heard arguments for all kinds of techniques and actually, everyone has a good point. Both horizontal-fisted punches and vertical-fisted punches can be effective but first you have to know WHY and WHEN to use them.

Boxing Head Movement

What’s the secret to great head movement?

It has to do with understanding what good head movement is and how to do it. You’ll need to learn the different styles of head movement and how to train the skill. Even with all the tips I’m give you, you’re still going to get hit a lot.

For the serious fighters, you don’t really have a choice. Head movement is a standard boxing skill you need to be competitive. Your head can only take so many shots from trained opponents. But I promise you, there’s no greater feeling than being able to completely avoid a punch (besides a KO).

It’ll take you a while to master the art of head movement, but here’s what you need to know: [Click to read more…]

breathing techniques for fighting

Are you getting tired for no reason? Are you running out of air during fights? Or do you just stress out behind your guard and get beat up until the bell rings?

Breathing is an essential function of life. It comes before strategy, before technique, before ANY complicated fighting movements. It’s easy to forget how to breathe because you never learned it in the first place. Breathing was always natural until you got in the ring and got distracted by all the fighting.

…but how do you expect to fight when you can’t even breathe?

Learning how to breathe allows you to rest, think, and attack powerfully!

boxing footwork tips

The average fighter has terrible footwork. And I’m not talking about the guy in the corner that’s only been boxing for 2 months, I’m talking about the AVERAGE AMATEUR-LEVEL COMPETING BOXER. Unfortunately, this might mean you.
