The systematic formulation of intrinsic facts, principles, and
guidelines of applied personal defensive skills through
utilisation of the fists is the science and Art of Boxing.
The objective of Boxing as a sport is a subjective matter to
participant's and onlookers alike due to their viewpoint and
knowledge base. The scoring rules of boxing codes have both
boxers commencing each round with 10 or 20 points that decrease
proportionately when a boxer is judged to have failed to defend
punches to their target area. It is therefore the failure to
defend punches that cause boxers to lose whilst winning requires
the necessity to score.
'We don't know how hard something is until we try it,
and don't know what we don't know until we learn something.'
The boxing beginner practising at punching a bag often feels
confident enough to spar with someone else because they are able
to punch. The begiiners success in sparring will be dependant on
their punching but lack of success will be due to their failing
to defend the opponent's. The beginner may think and be told
that they would of done better if they had thrown more punches,
but a knowledgeable assessment would be that the implementation
and acquirement of a defence capability would be a more positive
approach to future success and sports enjoyment
The thought when defending punches is to duck, slip, and weave
as do skilled boxers with many years of experience and training.
The major problem and stumbling block if this route of learning
is pursued is that the beginner does not initially have the
experienced boxers anticipation, and timing, and may never
acquire the subtle body movement skills to avoid being hit and
score in return.
Unlike the previous high skill acquisition requiremnent only a
small amout of time is required for any begginer to learn how to
hold their hands and arms up to shoulder height for service as a
barrier defence. The legs allow positional choice and in
co-ordination with the hands and arms provide a defence or
attack movement capability.
