    Boxing Defence to MMA

    Ive just recently started training with a MMA group and SERIOUSLY need to adjust my defence. Ive boxed for years and being a small, stocky guy generally take most of my opponents shots on the gloves going in and box from the inside. Obviously, this isnt the best idea with tiny MMA gloves... Can anyone reccomend any advice, articles, resources on adjusting my boxing defences to MMA? Ive started focusing on my basics again ie parrying and slipping and just need to know if im going in the right direction...

    Hmmm, have you seen Rodney King's clips/concepts on "Crazy Monkey" Boxing?

    Someone (I think Omega) referred one time that a hand stance similar to what the Kyokushin folks use feels/seems better when using the tiny MMA gloves as well. I'm just parroting stuff I've heard and read, btw.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Well, he's at an MMA class now, so hopefully he'll learn about all the marvellous things he can do from a clinch which aren't done in boxing.

    I'd just use my forearms similarly to the way I used to use the gloves and leave my body more open as I entered.
