Default Re: Is boxing more of an instinctive sport or a thinking sport?

most of what a good fighter does not come natural. Leaning back from punches..windmill punches, those come natural. The trick is to train train train, build muscle memory, rep, repeat..learn it in shadow boxing..on the bag..on mitts...light minimal contact sparring, than full sparring..learn what you have to do until it becomes second nature...make it "instinctive" even though you are doing things that you would not do in a state of nature.
