How to Box

Why ALL Fighters Should Learn Boxing

Boxing can teach you more about fighting than you might ever realize.


Those who’ve never tried boxing could easily say:

  • Why bother with a limited fighting art that only uses the hands?
  • No kicks, knees, or elbows? Boxing isn’t real fighting.
  • Boxing is only about landing the knockout punch, anyone can get lucky.
  • Boxers have bad punching technique.
  • Boxing is so unskilled, it just looks like a brawling street fight.


Those who HAVE tried boxing could easily say:

  • Boxing is tough. Tough training, even tougher competition.
  • Pure athleticism. Raw speed, power, and endurance. Tiring and painful.
  • Incredible reflexes and extremely fast fight reaction time.
  • Very skilled, commonly misunderstood and under-appreciated fighting art.
  • Very humble fighters and learning environment.


All fighters, mixed martial artists, could benefit from learning how to box. Even if you don’t care for boxing techniques or boxing punches, you could still learn a lot. Boxing can make you a better athlete, improve your reflexes, make you smoother, and more comfortable in a fight. There’s a reason why all MMA camps have dedicated boxing trainers on staff.

Knowing this allows you to determine your proper boxing stance for strategic and anatomic benefits. It may not be an advantage but at least you don’t handicap yourself.

But first of all, how do you figure out your dominant hand? [Click to read more…]

Strong Arm in the Back

After correcting so many beginners, I write the official guide on why the strong hand belongs in the back and not the front.

Just about every month, I see a new fighter standing with his strong arm in front. He’ll give me endless reasons about why he hits harder that way or fights better as a southpaw. Like the rest of them, they all base their reasons on their favorite fighter or their experience in back yard fights. To settle the debate once and for all, I break down all the known discussion points for advantages and disadvantages from fighting with your dominant hand in back or in front.

Everyone wants to know:

Should I stand with my strong arm in the back like all other traditional boxers?

Or should I convert into a right-handed southpaw or left-handed orthodox fighter for some tactical advantages in having a strong front arm?

Do the advantages really make you a force to reckon with? Or are you giving up your natural advantages for just a silly trick? [Click to read more…]
