Dirty Boxing - Street Striking (Krav/Self-Defense Drills) at POW! Gym
About this class
At the foundation of building your self-defense skills, it the ability to throw effective, decisive and confident strikes. This class will help to bridge basic boxing drills to explosive combatives for self-defense. The science of boxing provides anchoring skills for combat, however, when you use them on the street adjustment must be made. These include your stance, practicing very powerful punches and movement to provide advantageous positions to honestly fight 'unfairly.' When you are defending yourself on the street, you are already in a position of disadvantage and should never underestimate the convictions of the attacker. This class will mix crosses and hooks with stealth elbows, fast knees and monster punches. The class will also create situational drills for your 'dirty boxing'.
