Boxing is in principle a sport more than a martial art. Boxing matches are heavily regulated and when it comes to punching technique and power. There are few martial arts that are as focused on fist strikes. Fighters are well known for their fantastic footwork and the manipulation of angles to beat their opponents; these two aspects combined make boxers very dangerous in fights. Considered one of the best exercises for stamina, breathing, and hand/eye coordination, it is an excellent way to becomes more proficient with your punches and stay in excellent shape.
