This is one of the most helpful 90 second boxing tips that I can give you.
Feinting in boxing is the ultimate deception. It is the diversionary attack, the ‘secret agent’, that flanking move. Feinting enables you to exert pressure without even throwing a punch.
Feinting enables you to set a counter punching strategy in place and make an aggressive opponent think twice before attacking. In short, feinting is an absolutely fundamental aspect of successful boxing.
This video gives you a great introduction to feinting in boxing and there is a link below to a follow up video and article that provides some more information and insights.
There are 3 types of feint:
- Feint with the hand
- Feint with the body
- Feint with the feet
When you apply these feints during a round, and remember to fire your punches in the right proportions, you cannot fail to land more punches and exert more control over your opponent.
