Nice manual on Boxing
Is here: http://bodybuilding.com/fun/drobson68.htm
Boxers, and fighters of many kinds, and those interested in the training - like me because I want to widen my teaching skills - should take a look. It features lots of pictures and links to vids, mostly of Beth Westover, a Boise Idaho woman who recently has gone pro, after some boxing and MT fights.
and it can be compared to http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=13610, An Amateur Boxing Manual.
.and just because I can't resist:

Thanks Pat. That's a pretty decent 'boxing basics' outline. The interview with the cutman was a good read." If one wants to have a friend one must also want to wage war for him: and to wage war one must be capable of being an enemy." - Fr. Nietzsche 'On The Friend' Thus Spake Zarathustra

That is nice to link, GIJoe. I want to think I could teach, and ****, we never wrapped in class or the gym, just wore gloves. And in a lot of Wado and KK, they didn't even have gloves. It's like my instructors who tried to go mma. They could fight great, but had no real idea how to break down things to teach like throwing techniques, and had no knowledge of wrapping, of for that matter, very little knowledge of any protective gear.
In KK we went to more kickboxing, but one of our BBs had spent a year with Benny, and Sensei was smart and humble and learned everything he could- the mma wannabees had BB level sport karate and high level ground skills, but lacked, like me, practical knowledge that is needed to protect and train."Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez
