Re: Boxing type punches

The boxer is a striker but his sphere of strength is the same as anyone elses. To draw him/her out of that sphere you have to take his balance. In the case of the boxer this is more of a mental balance you will have to address. You have to make him/her miss and counter strike (atemei). This over time will draw the boxer outside of their normal boxing mode. This is not easy. Practice, practice, and more practice.
