The 3 Axes of Boxing

Becoming a slick boxer requires the ability to flow through EVERY POSITION in boxing.

If you’ve ever watched a slick boxer for more than 2 minutes, you’ll see him tilt his spine. First he’ll tilt it one way, then he’ll tilt it another way. His upper body moves like a joystick nearly every minute of the fight.

But WHY should you do it? And an even better question—HOW?

You’re crazy if you still think it’s possible to fight from only one position.
I’ll show you the advantages and disadvantages of the different axes in boxing. Next I’ll tell you how to transition between them. Then I’ll tell you how to transition WITHOUT wobbling off balance.

Keep reading if you want to become a slick boxer.

weights and punching power

 *This was 10 years ago when I thought lifting weights made me a stronger puncher.*

My body isn’t like that anymore and yet I’m so much more powerful now even without trying. Earlier this year, I wrote a controversial article explaining why lifting weights doesn’t increase punching power.

A lot of people disagreed,

many got angry.

One person called me a “stupid kid that doesn’t know anything about sports science or boxing.”

…this guide is not to convince ANY of these individuals.

For everyone else willing to READ and LISTEN and set aside your bias for a split second, here are some more explanations as to why I stand confidently at this conclusion today.

I write it because it might change the way you think about training, change the way you fight, and help you punch harder than you ever could. [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!
