Alright so today I though I would try a different gym , which is supposed to be one of the best here ( reason I didnt go before is that theyve got training sessions in times that Ive got school ,but today it was holiday ). And the thing that is just really different is the stance ... Im used to having my hands about chin high , lets say that eyes are only like an inch above my knuckles - but where I was , the hands were held above the eyes , knuckles at the the middle of the forehead level , like if you would want to tuck yourself to defend from someone launching lots of strikes on you ( palms facing your forehead , not away ). Trainer said boxers hold the hands at chin level , thaiboxers forehead level . To be honest Ive seen some guys do it this way , but most hold their hands at chin level , ussualy under the chin I mean ... So whats with this thing ? Im trying to train some mma , so is this kind of stance "bad" for it ? Does it really matter much ? Any help will be appreciated .
