My friend has been traiing in boxing and well my friend says that in boxing u aim 4 the persons throat. Is this true??? I was like but that is illegal 2 strike some1 in the throat.
But my friend kept saying that's where the instructors are saying 2 hit.

Idk i think those instructors are crazy.
Or am i jsut stupid and that is where u are supposed 2 aim 4?

I didn't argue 2 much cuz that person has been training for like 5 months in boxing.
And i've been training in mma for like 3 weeks.

I've never heard of this. I think he's bullshitting you. Besides, a throat punch is pretty hard to get. Boxers fight with their hands up and chin down. You're much more likely to hit their face than throat.
 
yea i thought it was like dumb 2 even say that!
Im like what y would u do that
 
I all my years of boxing.. never heard of this...
 
Stupid. Maybe he meant in a street fight? Throat strikes are pretty devistating if you can actually hit them in the throat.

Yeah, in boxing you aim for the place you want your punch to land, typically on the chin or right behind the ear. Nose/eyebrows are a good place too.
 
Either your friend is pulling your chain, or his instructors are idiots...
 
Hold up peeps, there is a valid reason.

When you see a punch coming, what is your first response? To tuck your chin. Where does your chin go when it gets tucked? Normally about where your neck was.

Not only that but when someone starts doing head movement, most always they have to bend at the knees a little, thus causing there head to go down. This would do the same as tucking it... in other words, your chin would be where your neck was.

Not that I punch at the throat, but I could see why someone would.

but the chin is supposed to be tucked in most of the time anyways. unless your out of range
 
Our Boxing coach tells us to aim for the neck, just for the same reason that the guy above stated. When people try to slip punches you hit them right in the face. I usually don't aim for the neck though. I either aim for the body or head. But I wouldn't doubt what our coach says, he's trained 100's of fighters and won lots of fights.
 
I think he's just talking about leading the punches..not actually hitting someone in the neck
 
yeah this sounds like the instuctors saying one thing about leading a punch, where your friend actualy belives they want you to punch someone in the neck. Basicly you will punch them in the face/chin.

could be useful i guess if you have a problem if punching people in the forhead :p Never really heard of someone teaching that though.
 
YES I have heard of this before. As stated above you will not get the throat with a glove on but when a person moves there head you will get the jaw or nose. If you punch for the nose then when he moves you may ge the forehead.
 
Actually it was a girl that was arguing w me! LOL
she thinks she's nice. LOL
Na i just said when i punch i usually go 4 some1's nose and then she said when i punch i usually go 4 there throat.
 
In a match yea aim for the lower jaw/throat area that is how I am informed.
 
I always fought taller guys,who tend to lean head back. I aimed for the throat. It was vey effective. Not as a KO punch but just an intemidation factor. Got their mind off hitting me and on protecting themselves

Holy crap how old are you? 12? Damn man... Back on topic - with 20oz gloves you can't even fit in that space between your chin and chest! Even bare fisted - if a boxer chooses to execute the proper form by rotating their fist before impact, you can't really hit their either.

But yeah, in terms of aiming for that area you have to realize from a teaching perspective, you tell students to aim for the nose they'll be glancing off the top or sides of head, which is really what ends up happening with a lot of punching. You would want to tell beginners to aim for a part that you think has the most chance of solidly landing.
