How to take a punch? – AKA Karate Poole & Kickboxing

How to take a punch?

You can learn to “take a punch” via sparring. First I’d stick to just boxing with 16oz gloves as you will take more punches in a safe environment. Secondary I’d encourage corner drills, simply riding the storm of your opponents pressure then swap. This will also teach you to keep your eyes open under pressure. This type of training is usually not part of karate but it should be. However some things are almost God given like the iron jaw. But we can only be the best we can be.
