    Review ------ Book Review: "Some books just show you how to box, others just tell you. Still others do a little of both. With Boxing Basics, Professor Gotay becomes your personal trainer, teaching you step by step how to box. This is the most definitive "how to" boxing book I have ever seen". --Randy Gordon, Former Editor-in-Chief of Ring Magazine Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) Review ------ Everything you need to know about coaching boxing. As a lifetime educator and athlete I found this book an easy way to relate to the the sweet science of boxing. My background as an athlete was I was a Division I baseball player and a Division I AA All American football player. My coaching has focused primarily on these two disciplines. I am currently an assistant football coach and baseball coach at Sachem North Hight School on Long Island. I was looking for some cross training opportunities for my athletes. What better way to get great strength, cardiovascular work and toughness than through boxing. My main concern was to keep my athletes safe and I found this book to be a great tool for me to make sure I was teaching my athletes the proper techniques. I especially liked the easy step by step ways to teach each type of boxing move, whether it be a defensive clinch or an offensive punch combination. Many of my athletes wanted to spar, but they had no idea what had to be done before they could actually fight someone. I also thought the instant reference guide was an excellent way for me to prepare quickly before a training session. It is perfect for today's busy athlete/educator. I believe the cross training that is involved with boxing is huge. I am excited about finding a book that has allowed me to train my athletes correctly in order to take advantage of the many positive attributes of boxing. This is a great book for first timers getting their feet wet in the sport of boxing. It is clear, concise, and leaves nothing to chance Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) See all Editorial Reviews ( /dp/product-description/1432725068/ref=dp_proddesc_0?ie=UTF8&n=283155&s=books&isInIframe=0 )
