    What do you take from boxing?

    This got me thinking about personal styles, and about taking what you find useful. We all know boxing has some great aspects, but is high specialised and so limited. The real question:

    Do you personally integrate western boxing techniques in to your overall striking style?

    If not why not? If so, what did you take?
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Boxing has the best punches, cross it with muay thai for all the other strikeing elements.

    But most of the time just muay thai will suffice.

    A jab, a hook, a cross and an occasional uppercut, that's all the striking I have. If it wasn't for (rudimentary) boxing, I'd have no pugilistic game whatsoever.

    Boxing, helping striking-impaired grapplers since its' inception.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    Absolutely not. My jab, cross, bolo punch, overhand, hook, and uppercut are distinctly Filipino in style. :icon_cool

    Seriously though, you just can't do too much wrong with boxing style strikes, and the footwork is just makes sense for combat. It fits right in with the FMA weapons footwork. We use the shuffle pretty heavily with stickfighting, although it's just a hair more extended, and you keep your weight a bit lower. Still, it makes for an easy transition from weapons to empty hand.

    Footwork and defensive techniques.

    Parry, slip, bob/weave, etc.

    I use the parry and slip, but I wouldn't ever bob and weave. Too many knee in the face accidents.

    All the punches find their way eventually, along with the fact that I know I can take a punch to the face over and over again =P

    Boxing has done wonders for my balance and footwork. Everything about how I punch is also of course very boxing influenced (which gets me in trouble some times with the leg kicks).
