If you can't join a gym, work on your conditioning. DON'T focus on technique, since once you do join a gym, your coach will have to make you un-learn all your self-taught technique.

Ok, I joined a gym tonight. I don't really know if it's any good so i'll ask for your guys opinions and would appreciate it if you could reply. They do two days a week for beginners, we did lots of exercises not a lot of boxing? There was about 30 people there including young kids, this is what we did: running around gym, jump rope, sit ups, push ups, squats, hopping, lying down arm wrestling (wtf?), some exercise where u try touch each others shoulder, and lots of other exercises, then we paired and he told us combinations to do with a partner for like 10 mins, then we did 1 minute rounds on the bag about 3 times (was knackered at this point) then finished with some stretches.
I mean, does this sound any good to you guys? There was people sparring as well in the rings, obviously they have been there longer so guess I got to get my fitness up first and get the basics. But what do you guys think? And about the conditioning, what can I do? I mentioned running but got jumped on, so will I benefit from running and if so how often and how far? Sorry for the long winded reply. Thanks a lot

You did combinations before learning proper footwork, proper foot technique, etc...???

What gym is this...??? What area do you live in...??? some of us can help get you a quality gym in your area...!!!

Nothing wrong with learning a boxer to punch before footwork. Arguments can be made for learning punching form before or after footwork.

Depends on the coaches training philosophy and says nothing about the quality of a trainer or the gym.

Why do you think footwork should be taught first?

I wouldn't say I got taught them, we just paired up and he said do this combination, Literally the only thing he said to me when he watched me was ''good'', I know I'm not good as I haven't been shown anything really. I live in Hinckley, Leicestershire. As I said, I really want to learn everything but don't want to waste my time, I want to make sure I'm getting it right from the start. thanks

It is imperative that a boxer learns footwork FIRST. Footwork is the main foundation for proper punch structure & technique.

How are supposed to know the proper technique of throwing punches if you do not know foot work...???

That is a not a good argument. I suspect you are just quoting what you have heard or read without really thinking about it.

How long do you think it takes for a raw novice to "learn" footwork?

Ive been a professional trainer for 17-18 years. Most raw novices I work with go through 2 to 3 weeks of footwork training before I even let them learn punch techniques.

My examples of footwork training:

Proper back, hip, shoulder placement.

Basic square style pattern...Boxer moves left-right-front-back for Four(4) Rounds, 3 minute rounds.

Circle in ring...Boxer learns to proper way to move forward & backward while moving around a circle within the ring for Four (4) Rounds, 3 minute rounds.

Move sideways around the ring, trainer calls out direction for Four (4), 3 minute rounds.

Boxer starts at one ring post, moves forward to next post, then retreats backwards to starting point, then moves from post 1 to post 2 on to post 3 in a forward motion, and retreats backwards to post 2 then post 1....Boxer does this exercise til he/she finishes all four ring post with the proper foot etiquette, technique, etc.

Jump rope for Eight ( 8 ) minutes continually.

After the 2-3 week period, the boxer MUST DEMONSTRATE proper footwork etiquette before they graduate to hand placement, punch technique.


Old boxing adage says "Boxing is like a house, no founation and the first storm will tear down the house" IE: Learn from the ground up, footwork first.







Answer me this: How do you expect someone to learn how to throw a hook if they do not know where their feet placement is supposed to be...???
