Be a Boxing Defense Master With These Tips – These Are the Defense Drills of the Top Boxers Ever!

It seems like a very basic boxing defense tip; you simply slap the punch out of the way. However, parrying a punch involves some technique that many people fail to realize and many trainers fail to teach.

Parrying a punch can be considered to be a basic boxing tip but I like to think of it as a more intermediate tip. The reason behind this is that in order for it to be an effective defense tip, the fighter has to be confident and relaxed in his/her abilities. They have to know that a simple touch will cause your opponents punch to completely veer off target.

What is Parrying A Punch?

Parrying is used as a defensive tactic for straight punches. What you are actually doing is actually using your hand to lightly slap your opponents punch off target. This is a very effective and low energy defense maneuver that will frustrate your opponent because none of his punches will land where he wants them and if he is a novice, he will probably revert to aggression and try to attack you with power and anger, exactly what we want!

Tips on Ensuring your Boxing Defense

When it comes to parrying, remember this is only for straight punches, your right hand matches with your opponents left hand and your left hand goes with his right. You’ll never want to parry your opponents left hand with your left because it will leave you open to a counter punch.

When your opponents punch reaches your hands, you can parry the punch by simply, quickly and lightly slapping the punch down. You never want to go out and reach for the punch because an experienced fighter will pick up on your tendencies and faint a punch so you commit and then come with another powerful punch.

You also don’t want to slap the punch to hard, forcing your hand to move too far away from your original hand position because this will leave you open.
