Boxing Classes in Burton on Trent
Boxing Classes Burton - What is Boxing?
Boxing, quite simply put, is a combat sport in which two people wearing padded gloves throw punches at each other for a pre-determined amount of time. Or, until one of the participants is unable to continue.
Boxing is a combat form that is widely used in MMA and is one of the primary striking bases for many fighters. Boxing punches account for the vast majority of strikes during the stand up portion of a bout and also account for the largest number of significant strikes, knock downs and KOs in MMA matches.
Because of the difficulty and stamina it takes to box, this sport hotly contested for the recognition as the toughest sport there is.
At the Martial Arts Burton academy we teach the traditional hand work and drills needed for boxing as well as footwork, use of combinations, and defensive techniques like slips, stance and head movement. All the training equipment is available for beginner levels meaning there is no outlay until more advanced levels are attained.
