Probably one of the oldest and most well-known fighting styles, especially by American Standards, is boxing. The sport focuses solely on utilizing the hands for combat, although footwork is very important as well.
Boxing is incorporated into almost every fighter’s regimen, mainly because of how applicable it is. Straight, Jabs, Hooks, Overhands and Haymakers are the most basic punches boxers learn. The biggest disadvantage it has is obviously that it doesn’t utilize the legs for offense at all.
Because of this, chances are even the most seasoned boxers will almost certainly need to learn some form of kicking or they will be at a HUGE advantage in the cage.
