Learn defensive tactics that allow you to shut down your opponent’s combinations, gain an understanding of how to combine your footwork with your punches and create opportunities to land clean shots and escape before your opponent can hit back.  Learn to off balance your opponent and hit him while he’s out of position, confuse him and make him do things he doesn’t want to do then take advantage of him, hit pressure points to the body and break him down, take his stamina, scramble his vision, take away his jab and out smart him with intelligence.
