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

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
