ok, i consider myself (along with almost anyone who has stepped in the ring with me) to be a pretty good boxer... im trying to pass this trait on to my little ones, so they can learn self defense.. i have a 2 yr old boy and girl.. my question is, what is the best way to start them off?

I'd say to teach em how to jab..If they can get good coordination with their left hand at a young age,it'll be real nice later on..

I would make it a game. Your kids will like doing it more if it is fun for them. I would start with simple punches. If you start teaching you kids now they are likely not only to know how to box, but learn the importance of working out.

Some city sponsored gyms teach kids for free on certain days of the week. Try to find a gym like that and take advantage of it. Maybe when they are a few years older. But like the above poster said try to make it a game, because they are young and might get bored.

I noticed this thread is like a year old, but I believe this is still relevant.

The Jab and how to move their feet properly, everything else will fall in place once they have those two things down.

best thing to do...let them put on some gloves and beat on u (or some mitts). make it fun. reward their activity with praise...especially when they get it right. also...teach/add/correct as u go.

first thing to teach....

stance
hand placement
how to move(footwork)
jab
cross
left hook (uppercuts are advanced punches i'd save them for last)
slips
rolls
blocks
combination punching

don't try to do it all at once. treat it like a work of art. start with the base and just build on it as u go. if u notice anything blatantly wrong, fix it. don't let them develop bad habits.
