Default Teaching a friend to box

alright a good freind of mines parents just got divorced. his dad is going to live in my town and his mom is moving to a bad part of the city afew miles away. he lives with his mom and will comes with his dad on the weekends and for a week or so everynow and then. he was always big kid and worksout and stuff but in his new school there are fights over little things. i figured i would teach him a little about fighting so i am going teach him boxing. any tips on what i should teach him first? i would assume first i would teach him the stance, then jab, then cross, then footwork. the i would teach him some basic defenses for the jab and cross. do you agree with how i teach him or no?

I'd suggest footwork and stance first..Moving around etc. then the jab. After that you can teach him some other punches/combinations, but keep pushing on the footwork and stance.

1. Stance
2. Footwork
2. Jab
3. Cross

That should keep you busy for a bit. Make sure he understands the previous step before moving on to the next.

I think you should work on quickness and power in straights and body shots. Streets fights require knockdown power in the first few seconds of the fight. Its straight to the ground no time to waste in a street fight. Teach him to put them down quick with shots that will hurt and stun the opponent.

hypnotiq, I am also teaching a friend to box. I started with an explanation of the reality of boxing - since most people only think it's about knocking someone out - and then had him spar with me for a minute to illustrate it. After that, I did stance, then footwork, then jab.

should prolly teach him one that will give him a better view, you can kick in a street fight too. Also teach him to react from an unexpecting stance, he might get jumped or something,keep him on his toes and show him how to react if he's attacked from behind.

ya, more variety the better. street fights are unpredictable where they will go.
