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.

Boxing Techniques

back hand guard technique

We’ve all been under pressure before. We take the most punches when we’re out of energy, out of room to move, and out of position to fight back. I can barely stand let alone defend myself!

That’s the problem with most defensive techniques–they rely on some kind of “perfect position” that just isn’t possible when you’re getting beat up!

Well that’s all going to change today (in my sarcastic professional salesman voice). I’ll show you a trick the pros use to defend against combinations, WITHOUT THINKING, simply by moving your back hand.

This little defensive technique can protect you even when you’re unable to fight back… [Click to read more…]

body movement theory for fighters

Last Friday I was watching a video of Pernell Whitaker when I said to myself, “Damn! How does he MOVE like that?!” I wasn’t looking at his tricky counters or flashy defense. I was mesmorized simply by his incredible body control. I admired the way he waved hands and wiggled his shoulders in front of opponents, even the way he nonchalantly walked around his opponents. I was amazed by the way he MOVED!

Most fighters don’t understand body movement. I was fortunate enough to train in many sports as well as formal dance training. The truth is: I wasn’t really a talented fighter, I only knew how to use my body better than others.

And you won’t be a good fighter until you learn how to move your body… [Click to read more…]

power punching secret 2 legged punching

So what’s the “secret” behind two-legged punching? Well, the idea is to punch on 2 legs. Some of you are already thinking, “What? That’s it?! That’s your big secret? I already punch on 2 legs!

I would even estimate that at least 90% of the people reading this are punching on one leg. You might THINK you’re punching on two legs but you’re really not. Most fighters right now don’t even know how to use their non-pivoting leg!

If you’re shifting your weight while punching, this guide is for you!

jab with head movement

Did you know…?

8 out of every 10 boxers don’t know how to come in with the jab.

It’s a random statistic I just made up but my point is: hardly anybody moves their head when they come forward with the jab. Anytime you bring yourself closer to your opponent, you’re potentially walking into a dangerous counter punch. For this reason head movement is crucial for all forward movements—ESPECIALLY THE JAB.

It’s time you learned how to SAFELY come in behind the jab. [Click to read more…]

how to throw a straight punch

Straight punches are supposed to be faster and longer leaving you less vulnerable than curved punches…but only when thrown correctly.

Somehow I managed to box for years before being taught how to throw a straight punch. I thought I knew how to punch so I was surprised when my trainer showed me why my jab and straight right were actually slightly crooked.

Here’s one little tip to make those punches really straight: [Click to read more…]

dance for boxing

PHOTO: this is my brother, Brian Nguyen, the tango champion.

My brother tried for years to get me to dance. I refused at first thinking “what the hell does dance have anything to do with fighting?” He was the lover, I was the fighter. Could dance and boxing have been any more different? Turns out, I was wrong. There’s a whole lot fighters can learn from dance lessons besides balance and footwork. [Click to read more…]
