My name is Marshal Kauffman, owner and trainer of King's Gym in Reading, Pennsylvania. We're going to talk about the traditional training methods for boxing. One of your traditional training methods is showing someone how to throw a jab. A jab is one of the most important tools in boxing and you work on the traditional training methods which is basically standing in front of the mirror and shadowboxing. There's really only about six punches in boxing which are your straight punches, your hooks and your upper cooks. Those things are very important and once you get them down pat and no one can ever take that away from you. One of the other things that we would work on after they graduate from being on the line is then they would learn how to jump rope. Jumping rope is very important in training because it builds up conditioning and stamina. Another one of the training methods would be hitting the heavy bag. Hitting the heavy bag is important because that too builds up conditioning and stamina as well as strength but those steps of hitting the heavy bag doesn't take place until they learn the basic of standing in front of the mirror and learning how to throw a jab properly, learning how to throw a right hand properly, learning that their footwork has to be right. One of the other things that they would do in the traditional training for that day would be after hitting the heavy bag for say six rounds then they would come into the ring with me the trainer and they would do mitt work. Mitt work would basically be something where I'm one-on-one with them as they throw a jab at me I can pick out their mistakes, and I can help correct them, and I can work on different combinations with them as we're in the ring doing mitt work, which is a very important part of boxing. After they would be done with that, then they would go over to the speed bag. A speed bag helps with helping to build up your shoulder conditioning, helping to keep your hands up. My name is Marshall Kauffman, owner and trainer of King's Gym, and we just talked about the traditional training methods for boxing.
