Re: How do you improve your ability to take a punch/ not get KOed?
Neck exercises but be very careful and seek professional help if you do neck exercises wrong your in serious trouble.
Most important proper stance with weight evenly distributed.
Good mouth guard custom made from dentist
Mental grit repeat to yourself you will absorb the shot and dont panic
Try not stand square on and give less of a target.
DONT GET TIRED this is the main cause. Make sure you conditioned properly
Be cautious when facing a big puncher dont let them get set and plant their feet
Keep your chin tucked in. Use a tennis ball under your chin till it becomes a habit
When throwing a jab tuck your chin in and return your arm asap. Work your triceps for this.
And most Importantly PRACTICE. without practice none of this matters. Good luck
good luck hope this helps.
