From the Author :

During my formative years in the military, followed by a police career which included teaching boxing and self-defense to thousands of police officers, and later as a college physical education professor, I found that the most important thing that an instructor can pass on to a student is a solid foundation based on the building blocks or the fundamentals of a particular discipline. In this case, we are talking about boxing as a sport and as a mode of self-defense. Training in boxing fits into the natural character of anyone who desires to be in great physical condition and to feel confidant in their personal physical ability. Using the hands and fists is the most rapid means of self-defense and can be readily applied almost anytime and anywhere. The hands are always ready to move. An extensive warm-up is nice but is not necessary before the application of defensive and offensive moves in gym and in real-life street situations.

Many are the stories of youngsters who have turned their lives around after getting involved in boxing. The discipline required to become proficient in the sport can only be maintained by living healthy and training hard. This same dedication can be channeled into every other activity in life. The strongest and most able fighters are also the politest people that you can meet. They know what they can do and they don't have to flaunt it. Many great coaches and volunteers in amateur boxing are dedicated to developing the character, as well as the bodies of their athletes.

This book is about the most important thing in this sport of boxing or in any other sport. It is about basics. The book can serve as a training manual for both athletes and for trainers. It starts with equipment, physical training, goes to the primary punches, and then gets more detailed with many how-to pictures of combinations and counters. Traditional training and learning in boxing has been done without reference manuals. Most boxing books are anecdotal or biographical. Not Boxing Basics. This book is a how-to manual for athletes and trainers that can help in speeding up the learning process that transpires between an athlete-boxer and his or her trainer.

Review :

Outstanding text for a college course. This book has been assigned as the text book for a credit bearing course at my college. I have been a boxing fan for years and when I signed up for a college boxing course I wondered if a book would be required. With pleasure, I saw that the book is perfect for the course. In addition to covering the technical basics of boxing, it also has helpful hints that can enable a learner to avoid mistakes such as purchasing the wrong equipment, training in the wrong type of gym, or selecting the wrong trainer. It is an outstanding text for a college boxing course
