In the sense that form is so critical. Like in golf a beginner may try to muscle the club to try and it hit the ball as far as they can. What ends up happening is: 1. They miss the ball. 2. It doesn't go very far. and 3. Their shot is not accurate. But once they learn proper form and know when and where to apply the force their shots are accurate and the ball travels further though it doesn't necessarily feel like they're hitting it harder. Is this the same feel for technical boxing? In the beginning you try to muscle your punches and though they may be harder punches it comes at the cost of inaccurate punches, slower punches, and being more off balance and susceptible to counters. The two just seemed really similar to me as I was learning them. Any experienced boxers w/ some level of golf experience that can attest to this or am I totally off?
