Shaolin Kungfu

An excellent tactic is to close a Boxer and strike him, giving him no chance to counter-attack

When you have closed a Boxer effectively, he cannot strike you or move forward. You can then strike him repeatedly. His likely escape is to bounce back.

As he bounces back, you should chase him, “taming” his hands at the same time. The space taken by a Boxer's bouncing is short. Usually you can cover the same space in one step that a Boxer needs to bounce back twice. Hence, you have superior technical speed over a Boxer. In other words, when a Boxer tries to escape by bouncing away, you can easily cover the space and still close him and strike him.

When you close a Boxer correctly, he finds it hard to counter-attack you. But you can attack him with your other hand. If he tries to move back, follow him closely with repeated strikes.

Shaolin Kung Fu Close Boxer as Soon as he Jabs

Close a Boxer as soon as he jabs. As he pulls back his jabbing arm, follow his momentum and close him. This gives the Boxer little or no chance to escape. Strike whatever exposed parts of his body, including his upper arms.

“Shaolin Stick to Boxer like Glue

If you fail to close a Boxer on his first jab, you can close on his next or following jabs. Shift back your body, without moving your legs, to avoid his strikes if you fail to close him. Once you have closed him, stick to him like glue and strike him relentlessly.
