Another important basic is the boxing guard. In this quick tip video I explain just 3 of the many guards that are available in boxing. The high guard - Great for using in close to protect your temples and jawThe low guard - Protecting your chin and jaw, the sides of your body and ready for lower shots by dropping your elbowsThe half guard (the Mayweather style guard) - This is great to use when you are against the ropes, a perfect base to defend and then throw your own punches - you really need to see some Mayweather fights if you want to see a master of this.
