If you’re a bit nervous, you’re not alone, but there’s also no reason to be.
We’re going to show you exactly what you should expect as a beginner.
You’ll spend a long time learning the basics. Bruce Lee once said, “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”
While Lee wasn’t known for boxing, this saying definitely applies to the Sweet Science. Other martial arts like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu may have a library of different attacks, defensive maneuvers and various techniques in between but not boxing.
For the most part, you have: Counterpunches, Crosses, Hooks, Jabs, Overhands, Short Straight-Punch, Uppercuts.
While there are also evasive maneuvers and combinations to learn, the truth about boxing is that victory usually belongs to the person who masters repetition.
