    Default School Me on the Classical Boxing Stance

    I'm interested in learning as much as I can about the classical boxing stance used by fighters such as Charles Burley, Archie Moore, I want to learn the pro's and con's of such a stance. How to effectively use techniques like the rising jab and shoulder roll from it. I then plan to take what I learn and try it out in the gym. I'm a 17 year old senior in highschool who currently is taking Muay Thai and what to take things from the old school style of boxing and apply it to Muay Thai and possibly MMA in the future. My style of fighting is a bit close to Dutch Kickboxing.

    I feel that the way that old-schoolers fought is the proper way. I want to learn as much as I can from their footwork to their punches. This video is what sparked everything for me: "Charley Burley: Analyzing Genius " (I cant post links, so please youtube that vid)
    When explaining things it would probably be best to do it in the context of boxing, then add a side-note for its effectiveness in Muay Thai and/or MMA.
    Thank you all for your time.

    I know little of this, but would interested to learn more.

    If talking about 1800s-1900s, time frame.

    I may be wrong on the details but fighters protected their ribs and solar pelx, more than the head.

    Punches where thrown starting with the palm up ?, rotating if throwing a hook, so every punch thrown you could see your palm, prevent breaking your thumb on your opponent.

    Punches thrown with less power, to protect hands, bc of no gloves or small gloves.
    Lots of hands where broken.

    Interesting fact that the spinning back fist, was banned bc it lead to so many knockouts, usually landing with the forearm instead of the knuckles.

    Alot more dirty fighting was involved, thumbing to the eye, headbutts ect.

    I'm not sure if you knew this DiPoet, but the person who made that Charley Burley video is actually a poster here in the forums.

    Would you like to use the classical boxing stance in MMA?
    Or just the fundamentals of strikes and targets?

    The classical boxing stance might be all wrong for MMA.
    I have to re analyze the Burley video, I'll get back to you most likely to tomorrow.

    I guess the fundamentals for now would be great, since I'm not going to an MMA gym. And I'm also starting to contemplate between MT or boxing. Which one to try as an ammy then see if I got what it takes to make it as a pro. Someone told me MMA was mainly a grappling sport and not to really bother since I haven't grappled before in my life.

    Interestingly Charles was diagnosed, with a form of M/S in 1948. Makes you wonder , Great Fighter.
