    Boxing help

    Well im new to boxing and im a lot shorter than the people i spar with.

    I cant seem to get past the jab and when i started to come in they move away and keep jabbing.

    My coaches tell me to come in with a high gaurd and a lower stance and work the body then the head but how effective is this if i were even to use it in a street fight or MMA?

    Does anybody here have any idea what to do because i want to start MMA but i dont think coming in with a high gaurd and a lower stance then working the body will help much in MMA or a street fight but maybe im wrong. any help is appreciated

    If you're going to be doing MMA, that advice seems fine to me.

    Of course you'll have to train some form of grappling to make it really work (forget body punches, perhaps go for a shoot).

    That is if you're planning on doing MMA. It's 'Mixed' for a reason.

    Don't concern yourself with if a strategy will help you with MMA. You're boxing, not doing MMA striking. You're getting your ass kicked because this guy is using boxing strategy to beat you in boxing.

    In MMA, you can tie up and take him down to defeat his range. In boxing, follow your coaches advice.

    Be better than them at striking? It's a tough call since getting on the inside to deliver shots since you're smaller includes getting into their range for take downs first.

    I wish there was a secret but I don't think that there is one. Just keep training/fighting.
