Simple Boxing Moves For Beginners
Jabs are an excellent beginner move for boxing. To do a jab, throw your dominant arm straight ahead and orient your fists so that your knuckles are pointing up and your palms are facing down. Make sure to snap your arm back to near your chin after you finish the jab, as this will provide cover for your face in the ring!
A cross is a great boxing move to improve coordination, and involves your whole body. To perform a cross, extend your non-dominant hand out while rotating your torso at the same time. By putting your whole body into the cross, it has more power than a jab and will build arm strength too!
