View Full Version : Punch Numbering Variations

10-01-2009, 06:46 PM
I have noticed that with the variety of styles that come through my gym and experiences that gym members have had, I have come across quite a few different punch numbering systems. (1= jab, 2= cross, Etc.) Many of them take into account of course, the style of boxing, IE in-boxing, out-boxer Etc. But also where a person has trained, for example a fellow out of Catskill still knows and uses the Cus D'Amato system. What caught my attention was the application and omition of the rear-hook, which I understand is an "impure" punch and not considered good technique by some trainers and considered important to others.

Any other systems you guys have come by that are helpful or easier to use?
