Re: Boxing type punches

Take them to the deep water. That is, where you have the biggest advantage.

A straight-forward approach vs a boxer would be to show them a couple of boxing-type blocks and/or punches to lull them to sleep, then show them a jab and quickly transition to a dive into the inside or outside of one of their knees and drive, drive, drive while holding on. Their instinctual reaction is to go down face forward, thereby giving you their back.

My favorite is to hold onto the leg, step over it outside to inside and trap them in a very painful leg lock that leaves both my hands free. If someone can't figure out how to wrap it up from there, they just don't have any imagination.

Of course, how well you succeed at this depends on how well trained you are at it. Hard work, rather than a silver bullet.
