How Boxing Improved My Martial Arts Overall

In looking at my years of training in martial arts, I would say that boxing has had the biggest impact. Spending 17 years actively training in boxing gyms, I have seen some of the best train and have learned skills that have carried over into all of my other martial arts experiences. The training of a boxer is intense and the reaction, timing, mental and physical toughness, are some of the things that carry over. In combat sports, I have always said that the fighter with better hands will win (all else being somewhat equal). In fighting the hands are used more than any other weapon. So, if you want to get better at punching, train in the sweet science. a couple of rounds from one my boxing fights
