How many times have you flipped through the channels and caught yourself stopping to tune in to a scene from one of the Rocky movies?

I, too, got caught up in the movie's theme of hard work and determination prevailing over all. As with most kids Rocky was the reason I got involved in the sport of boxing. Every time I would watch one of the movies I would find myself outside training to the soundtrack.

What fascinated me the most was Rocky's pure determination to go the extra round. Even more impressive was the shape that Sylvester Stallone was in for the movies. It would not sink in until much later that boxing and conditioning is hard work.

Everyone wants to either learn how to throw a punch or dodge one. However there is far more to boxing, such as getting your body ready and conditioned for what boxing is about to do to it.

Here you will learn the basics of boxing, from how to throw the common jab, cross, and hook, to learning proper form for push-ups, squats, pull-ups and chin-ups. Boxing exercises and weight training are just as important as learning to punch.

This might seem overwhelming at first, but I have broken the site down into different steps ranging from beginner boxing tips all the way through advance boxing training works outs.

Throughout these sessions you will begin learning how to box one step at a time. You will not only learn to box, but also how to condition your body. Soon this will become something that you look forward to.

Learning to box will take time and a lot of effort. We will provide you the tips and tricks on everything you will need to know at no cost. It will not be an easy task but nothing good ever comes easy.

Simply follow the on-site navigation bar on the left hand side of your screen in the order listed to progress through the program.

I would like to personally be the first to welcome you to your one-stop shop on how to box. Good luck and good training.
