Basic Boxing Footwork

Beginners absolutely need to master the step-drag and pivot maneuvers. This type of movement may seem difficult at first because many people have a habit of always jumping off the ground. In boxing, you want to keep your feet down on the ground so you’re always ready to attack, defend, or move away. Also, jumping around is a huge waste of energy. The flashy footwork will come naturally once you develop better conditioning and technique.

BEGINNER’S Guide to Boxing

The proper boxing stance 

  • Front toe & back heel on the center line. Dominant hand in the back (if you are right-handed, put the right hand in back).
  • Weight evenly distributed across both legs, knees slightly bent.
  • Feet diagonal, little wider than shoulder-width apart, back heel raised.
  • Elbows down, hands up.
  • Head behind your gloves, chin slightly down, eyes see over the gloves.
  • Relax and breathe!

Besides keeping your body fit, boxing has tons of other benefits;

You can burn anywhere from 800 to 1000 calories an hour with boxing! Boxing also reduces and relieves stress. It is a rigorous workout; controlled punching movements carried out with the discipline and skill can do wonders for feelings of frustration and anger. Practicing boxing moves can also help to improve balance, flexibility, coordination, and endurance.  Boxing is also a great way to get a total body workout while learning simple self-defense moves. Boxing fans say the sport helps them to feel more empowered and confident.  So get out there and jab and punch your way to fitness!
