Tuesday night’s third and final lesson saw my client reach the ninth hour of his Western Boxing for Martial Arts Cross Training course. Tonight we completely threw the spotlight onto defence. After warming up we would be going through 12 x 3 minute rounds of virtual specific sparring, mainly isolating certain defences and then adding on counter punches. My client would be responding to techniques I through at the camera.

Round 1 – Slipping

Round 2 – Slip and Jab

Round 3 – Catch

Round 4 – Catch and Jab

Round 5 – Pull back

Round 6 – Pull back and counter combination

Round 7 – Duck/roll left/roll right

Round 8 – Duck/roll left/roll right with appropriate hooks, uppercuts and body shots

Round 9 – Cover

Round 10 – Cover and Counter

Round 11 – All the above defences

Round 12 – Free Sparring – An opportunity to now be on the front foot and take complete control
