Andy applies a kick to the Boxer, posed by Hwan King

If you wish to be combat efficient, you have to learn and practice how to fight a Boxer. Why is fighting a Boxer so important. It is because today most martial artists, irrespective of the styles they practice, use Boxing techniques in their sparring and fighting.

An invaluable aspect of our training is that students work out their own techniques and tactics from actual experience instead of merely being told by their instructors. They are first given some good advice so that they do not have to start from scratch but benefit from the wisdom and experience of past masters.

An important combat principle is to know the strong points and weaknesses of your opponent. Of course, you avoid his strong points, and attack his weaknesses.

The strong points of a Boxer are his speed and agility. If you try to match him in speed, you would have a big disadvantage. His weaknesses are his techniques are limited and his attack and defence are relatively in short range. How would you avoid his strong points and exploit his weaknesses?

The video clips in this series show participants at the Intensive Shaolin Kungfu Course of October 2007 in Malaysia working out amongst themselves some effective ways to fight Boxers. Would you be able to work out some effective ways yourself by watching these videos? The next series will show the review of their own effort with Grandmaster Wong's comments and advice.
