Peroz, perez...what the fuck ever his name is.
I think most people here MMA box if they do it at all(like me).
I'm somewhere between shitty and "eh" at proper boxing, but pretty decent for a amateur MMA fighter.
But I have long arms so I can get away with it.
I have long arms too. My striking is primarily kicks and im not that good with my hands I just use them to set up kicks and take downs but now I want to start working my hands more so I decided Im gona take up boxing Im gonna start doing 2 hours a day 5 days a week for like 2 - 3 months. I just wanted to know how much id improve in that time
A decent amount, esspecially if you trained with a boxing coach(not a MMA striker).
Hes gonna have a heart attack at your stance and the way you move though.
yeah my stance is really really deep because im a karate/judo practitioner lol and yeah its a bocing coach main reason i want to do boxing is for the foot work
boxing footwork is going to kill your TD defense. Learn the hands and adapt it to MMA.
ill probably keep my stance then
i just started taking boxing lessons.... but to be totally honest, i love it and all, but i really wanted to take Bjj and Mt but they dont have morning classes... there is only boxing... so i have no choice, but beggars cant be choosers right?
quite a bit id imagine, depending on your learning curve, your coach, if you actually go 2 hours a day 5 days a week though should be great to improve your boxing skillset... dont go for 2-3 months, why not just do it from now on?
my instructor gets so mad at me when i do anything mma related- hes a boxing purist.
I got lucky. I help a guy who boxed professionally with his bjj and he teaches me standup, but primarily boxing in return.
I've been doing that for a few months. My hand speed is so much better than it was.
Thank you for the intro.
Yes sir i do box, but looking to expand my game.
my boxing sucks. I have a good boxing coach at the gym but haven't done much training with him. my kicks are superb though
omfg your AV is what my roomate says when hes drunk
it depends because I will be in the police academy in three months so the schedule might conflict and I train in muay thai now so I was going to use that to help develop my game
you can be another vitor lol
