Boxing, referred to as the sweet science, goes back to the days of antiquity. People from all cultures have been throwing punches, in one form or another, for ages. Currently, the art of boxing has been dominated by the West. Names like Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather are just a few of the boxers from the West which are known and respected all over the world.
Our head coach Salmaan learned how to box in the United States. From his sparring experiences in Houston Texas, he concludes that one definitely needs to know how to box to be a capable mixed martial artist. How many fights have ended with a brutal knockout from a well timed, crisp punch?
It is common knowledge that you have to have good hands to be an effective fighter, but boxing is much more than just throwing punches; you have to have strength, stamina & endurance. You have to be agile, fluid, and be capable of defending against and evading strikes – not just throwing them. You have to be able to slip punches, move in and out, weave hooks, and carry out many other skills to be effective. Most of all, you have to outsmart your opponent.
