“Why should I add boxing to my martial arts repertoire?” Occasionally students wonder why bother learning how to box when they’re at a Martial Arts school? The answer to that question is very simple. Boxing has been one of the most practical, effective striking systems and has withstood the test of time. It’s origins date back thousands of years, before the Roman Coliseums and before the Olympics in Ancient Greece! The “Sweet Science” has subtleties giving the competitor a wide range of tools against his/her opponent. Boxing provides us with a great base, combining all the striking arts. 1) Footwork: Good footwork dictates the pace of the fight. The fighter can step in and out of danger, using angles to become an ever more elusive target while delivering devastating combinations. 2) Rhythm and timing: Highly underutilized in MMA, they could mean all the difference in heated exchanges where it comes down to who connects first and last. 3) Head movement: Many traditional martial arts will not teach proper head movement and shoulder rolling. A seasoned boxer can not only slip and roll out of a deadly knock out punch to the face, he/she can “see” the punches way better and react accordingly. 4) Hand eye coordination: They prove invaluable when zeroing in on a battered, vunerable opponent and coming in for the finish.
