Response to a question on.. integration?


I don't really do it in that manner. We do a lot of boxing type workouts - agility drills, bag work, focus mitt, partner interaction training, and sparring. When I teach sparring, I teach boxing and kickboxing (based out of Joe Lewis Fighting Systems).

I teach young children more of the point oriented Kenpo sparring and I teach adults boxing and kickboxing, because that is what works in full-contact. You won't find outward, inward, upward and downward blocks in boxing for a reason - you would get your butt handed to you if you attempted one of those goofy blocks.

I teach a lot of head movement drills, body movement drills and foot movement drills. I teach that timing, distancing and rhythm - primarily broken rhythm - are what rule a fight situation (primarily talking sport - boxing, kickboxing, MMA). What happens if you aren't as fast as your opponent? Or, you don't hit as hard? You need to master timing, distancing and rhythm to have the upper hand.
