Want to fight? Best get a good base!

Ready to start your boxing career? First you will need to get a great "base" to work with. What? I take on new boxers or boxers that used to box and want to get back into it. What you need is to get some functional training under your belt to strengthen all of your muscles and your balance. Think you don't need functional training? Think again! Just check any boxing(ex. Titleboxing.com) website and you will see that they sell the same functional training equipment that I will use when training you!

Using dumbbells encourages stronger bone densities as well as joint and ligament health when used regularly and with proper posture.

The problem is that none of the aforementioned are types or styles of Karate-Do. Karate styles either originate from mainland Japan or from Okinawa.
