The most important thing in boxing is the stance

The stance is a universal thing, it is different for all boxers. As a boxer becomes more experienced, he has to change his stance for more effective defense and attack. The athlete must stand in such a position that the opponent cannot attack easily. Also, a boxer should not forget about the counter blows that he needs to deliver. It is very important to keep your feet neither too wide nor too narrow. A wide stance will not give you the mobility you need, and a narrow stance will easily knock you off your feet. So the best option is to keep your feet hip-width apart.

Attacking zones

To learn the basics of a sport like boxing, a beginner boxer must know where to hit first. The most productive strikes come from:

  • solar plexus area;
  • liver area;
  • edge area.

Also, blows should be applied to the chin and temple area. The main task of a boxer is to get into a stance and cover all vulnerable spots.

Necessary protection

A good stance involves protecting the chin and liver with the right hand. Straighten your back, pull your stomach in. The knees should be slightly bent, as the legs act as large stiff springs, and the boxer uses them constantly. The right leg is jogging, that is, the athlete does not stand on the heels. This is necessary for quick movement from place to place. Thus, we provide mobile protection, which will allow you to mislead the enemy, making feints and provocations. The more mobile the body and body, the better for the athlete. Defense should be multifaceted.

There are three types of punches that boxers take:

  • straight punches;
  • side impacts;
  • blows from below.

All of these shots are performed in different planes. The direct hit is mostly short. The shoulder moves to the chin, the hand is a continuation of the prelie down. This technique is performed directly with the index and middle fingers. On this part of the fist, the athlete takes the main load of the blow.

It is necessary to strictly observe the technique, since with an incorrect blow it is possible to get injured (cracks, stretching, etc.). From the very beginning, the beginner needs to put a blow so that in the future there are no problems with the wrong hit. To correct the blow, the athlete does push-ups on his fists. When a boxer does push-ups, he will not be able to place his fist unevenly, as this will immediately cause discomfort. This exercise immediately helps to deliver the necessary kick.

Front the athlete's hand holds the opponent for the distance. He uses his far hand to strike. Side kicks are effective at a distance when the enemy is away from you. They are often used at the start of a fight. Side impacts from below are more common for people who want to attack at medium-close range. Such blows are striking, as they inflict maximum damage.

Bottom blows are very similar to side blows, they are applied at the same distance, but the boxer changes plane and he is executed from bottom to top. The peculiarity lies in the fact that the athlete must make a movement from the bottom up, that is, twist out. When a beginner masters all three types of blows and a stance, he begins to practice and begins to combine the acquired knowledge. Then the athlete masters double and triple punches (deuces, postman), using the stance already studied.
