Boxing is a combat sport or martial art in which two opponents use only punches to attack the body and head. Nicknamed the “sweet science”, boxing uses footwork and head movement to create openings and set traps, giving the practitioner the ability to take open shots at will.

Although this art only utilizes the hands, these same techniques allow the practitioner to evade and disrupt the opponents attack, giving them the upper hand offensive and defensively.

Although boxing has roots in almost every culture, the modern era of prize fighting started in the 1800’s and has continued to be one of the most widely recognized martial arts worldwide.
