The perfect course for boxing enthusiasts and fans of the noble art of any experience level. Description This course will teach you to recognize, critique, and perform the techniques of Willie Pep, Roberto Duran, Ray Robinson, and Joe Louis. The course consists of seven, one to one lessons: 1. An introduction to foundational boxing technique or an appraisal, depending on your current experience level. 2. Our second session you will learn to observe, discuss, and practice, the stance, guard, and weight-distribution of heavyweight great, ‘The Brown Bomber’, Joe Louis. 3. Session three will teach you how ‘Sugar’ Ray Robinson evolved boxing technique, why he is Muhammad Ali’s precursor, and how to practice this technique. 4. In our fourth session will look at some of the techniques leading to Roger Mayweather calling ‘manos de piedra’, Roberto Duran, ‘one of the best in the history of boxing’. This session will also teach another dimension to boxing as the influence of wrestling and close-range hand-fighting will be explored. 5. By session five, you will be ready to tackle the trigonometry of ‘Will o’ the Wisp’, Willie Pep. The former featherweight champion of the world honed his defensive skills to the point he is rumoured to be the only boxer ever to win a round without Punching. 6. The final session of the package gives you the option to apply the techniques you have learnt in a safe, controlled, body-contact-only sparring session with a former professional boxer. If you are hesitant about this option, the session will be used as a summary session. Each lesson will combine bag-work, pad-work, and film study. By the end of the course, you will be amazed at what you never saw happen in boxing contests.
