Chad Boykin: Body Punching

Excellent. What I like about Chad is that he gives boxing lessons from a kickboxing perspective. Here he cautions about the knee, elbow, and takedown, and how to work in the body punch.

Caution:Body punches may not be the most appropriate tactic. It depends on the rules of the fight and/or skills or your opponent.

A Muay Thai fighter, for example, may find it very easy to land a damaging knee or elbow to your cranium should you attempt a body punch because you have to drop your head). A wrestler may take advantage of this same situation. There are, however, many times when body punches are quite appropriate and useful.
