Classic Boxing

ATTENTION MIXED MARTIAL ARTIST: We strongly encourage you to dedicate more time to pure classic boxing. If your specialty is grappling that’s great, but good scientific boxing will help you set up takedowns a lot easier if your opponent has good takedown defense. Keep in mind that Anderson Silva ruled the UFC for one reason “GOOD BOXING SKILLS”! If your opponent knows you’re a good wrestler he will work harder on his takedown defense and out strike you. You need the knowledge of legendary boxers like Sugar Ray Leonard, Tommy Hearns, Larry Holmes, Floyd Mayweather Jr, Pernell Whitaker and yes the greatest Muhammad Ali who were lethal tacticians in the ring. OC Boxing Academy is the only place in the orange county area where the science of boxing is truly exemplified, learn all the basic punches of boxing and then learn every possible way to combine them and make combinations with strategy.

Learn defensive tactics that allow you to shut down your opponent’s combinations, gain an understanding of how to combine your footwork with your punches and create opportunities to land clean shots and escape before your opponent can hit back.  Learn to off balance your opponent and hit him while he’s out of position, confuse him and make him do things he doesn’t want to do then take advantage of him, hit pressure points to the body and break him down, take his stamina, scramble his vision, take away his jab and out smart him with intelligence.
