They are called Boxing techniques; to the set of means of attacks and defenses, which as a result of systematic exercises become habits of the boxer.
Concept of Boxing Techniques:
- Skill to move, quickly and lightly inside the ring.
- Mastery of the attack actions, which are carried out in a surprising, fast and abrupt way.
- Correct mastery of the habits and knowledge that make up the defensive media.
- Mastery of counter-attack actions.
The tactic is used and studied simultaneously with the technique, since in the training process they become interdependent, and as we teach and fix the blow, we must simultaneously teach its defenses and the different tactical forms of counter-attack. We must understand that during the combat action the boxer is constantly in unexpected situations, and must act with great speed and precision of the movements.
Teaching is a Pedagogical process that requires the coach:
- Dedication and attention.
- Planning and organization of your work.
- Use of the most acceptable means and methods of the activity.
- Taking advantage of the interest shown by the boxer, and fulfilling the assigned tasks.
- Selection, dosing, and linking of physical exercises and technical-tactical elements.
- Make corrections of general and individual errors.
- Avoid demonstrating to the boxer the mistakes that he makes, before having stereotyped the movement.
- Evaluation of achievements and deficiencies. Measures to take.
- Individual boxer control.
These signals are essential for the coach, who is the central axis of the progress of his boxers during the training period. I recently review top punching bags and You can read here.
One of the most used methods by the trainers the GLOBAL-FRAGMENTARY. In this, the coach will explain and demonstrate the movement, accompanying them with photos, projections, etc., to provide the boxer with the broadest vision of the training exercise.
Then the boxer or the boxers will execute the technique taught, repeating the coach’s demonstration. If not done correctly, the coach must then provide the simplest elements and then the most complex. This methodological process allows the fragmentation of the technical movement for better understanding and mastery until reaching the perfection of the movement.
