Page 31 Straight Punches Straight punches are very useful against an opponent standing at long distance. Long distance refers to the distance between two boxers being far enough that the boxer cannot deliver the punch without stepping forward. The straight punch is an important punch as it can be used to prepare for the main attack in a bout. It can also be used to measure the proper distance to the opponent, disturb the opponent’s actions and to score blows. There are two types of straight punches, straight punch to the head and straight punch to the body. Also, these are divided into straight punch to the head or body using lead arm and straight punch to the head or body using rear arm. In order to effectively train the boxer, the following sequence of teaching and training is recommended: Lead arm straight punch to the head in standing position Lead arm straight punch to the head with forward step Lead arm straight punch to the head with backward step and side steps Rear arm straight punch to the head in standing position Rear arm straight punch to the head with forward step Rear arm straight punch to the head with backward step and side steps Lead arm straight punch to the body in standing position Lead arm straight punch to the body with forward step Lead arm straight punch to the body with backward step and side steps Rear arm straight punch to the body in standing position Rear arm straight punch to the body with forward step Rear arm straight punch to the body with backward step and side steps After a boxer masters the punches with movement, the coach should begin teaching basic defense against the punches that the boxer has learned. After mastering basic defense, coach should start teaching and training the counter attack.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
