“We always appreciate a good loser, especially when he is part of the opposing team.” – Milton Segal
This maxim could be applied to all combat sports : because although boxing or mixed martial arts are not sports in which one team faces another, but rather they are melee sports , we do like it when the one who loses is the other.
It is something universal in all individual and team sports: to win (or to land a good blow in boxing ) and to maintain physical shape or prepare well for a fight, you must have good sports equipment.
From head to toe, a boxer must be protected against any punch or kick from the opponent , keeping guard, dodging, advancing with good agile footwork, and “arming” for his attack.
This is accurate in all contact sports: French savate boxing, English boxing, Thai boxing, kick boxing , full contact (American boxing), kung fu (Chinese boxing), taekwondo, aikido , ju jitsu , rav maga , viet vo dao , karate or mixed martial arts boxing.
Generally, the boxing modalities are not usually mixed.
