How to Place Your Punches | Boxing Lessons

September 8, 2019

Using Neiman Gracie today, I’m going to show
you precisely where to land your punches. Neiman, front and center right there. We’re going to start with the top down. First, we’re going to start with the temple
shot. Turn your head left, Neiman. Right here is a knockout punch. It’s a great way to knock out your opponent. And then, stay away from the forehead. The forehead is the strongest part of the
skull. We want to work in this area from the eyes
down. All that’s good stuff. You’ve got the nose. You’ve got the mouth. Dental bills are expensive. That’s a great place to land your shot. And if you catch the chin that’s the sweet
spot. It’s the sweet spot because it snaps your
head back. That’s surely a knockout. All right. Also, you have the jaw bone on the left side
and the right side. Right here, below the eyes, you have the orbital
bone. A strong enough punch will break the orbital
bone. Also, when I’m looking at my opponent, right
beneath the sternum I’ve got the solar plexus. So any shot delivered right in there will
knock the wind right out of your opponent. It’s important that if you take a shot to
the gut to use some muscle tension and exhale on the point of impact. It’ll save you from getting knocked down or
the breath knocked out of you. My favorite shot, of all shots to the body,
is the liver shot. The liver shot’s a devastating shot especially
when you drop your body and you’re able to send your shot just below the chest cavity
up 45 degrees and send your shot all the way up and through to the back of the spine. You’re surely going to knock down your opponent
with that one.

    Guys please do not do that, You dont want to have trouble with the law, when the injured person press charges against you, or you dont want it to turn into a blood bath and gangsters fight, He brings his friends you bring your friends, So only do this for self defense when some thug or anyone tries to steal something from you , or attack you for no reason at all, If you are strong enough to deliver such strong blows to a person, then you should be really careful not to put yourself into trouble.

    Not sure how the mouth is a figjt stopper or how the possibility of dental bills especially with a good mouth guard will stop a determined opponent. Maybe a lip bleed but hardly an optimal target.
