A FLEX FIST BOXING CONCEPT
From Water to Ice
As some of you are already aware I published a book called Flex Fist Boxing.
This book illustrates a non-conventional boxing concept that I put together.
Although I teach conventional boxing as well, I feel the Flex Fist Boxing
concepts are incredibly useful in gaining an edge over a fighter who uses
conventional boxing only. The reason I say from water to ice can be easily
understood but not necessarily easily applied. It takes practice. As you can
see in the image above the HAND IS WATER and the FIST IS ICE. What I am
showing you here is how you should keep your hands open and calm like
water until the moment of impact. At the moment of impact the
“water” freezes. This causes an increase in velocity because in order to
“freeze” the “water” you must FLEX. Flexing is freezing! So think of it like
this “Flex Fist Boxing” can be visualized as “Freeze Fist Boxing”. Also,
although I call it “CODE OF THE FLEXING FIST” I teach students to flex
multiple parts of the body upon impact. I am sharing this to give more
insight into my contribution to the martial arts world. No martial art has
the market cornered on creative elements. There are many great martial
arts instructors out there some of whom I am still learning from myself.
What I share is simply what I have to offer in Shu Ha Ri Do. It is my hope
that I have inspired you with what I have to offer as a Sifu. I will be posting
more articles to explain some of the other metaphorical illustrations of Flex
Fist Boxing. Please like, comment, or share and thanks for reading.
