Some people believe boxing is enough for self- defence, do you agree?

I disagree with that statement. Boxers are skilled fighters but once things are taken to the floor or closer than arms length then boxers will become very uncomfortable and probably useless. Boxing is only any good when used with another martial art. 'Wing Chun 4 Life'

Western Boxing is one of the best styles out there. It`s fast, powerful and lethal when someone knows how to box.

Everyone knows boxing is one of the most deadly fighting sciences out there.

Boxing is great when used on it`s own, but even better when combined with another fighting method such as BJJ.

what do u mean by too many restrictions? In the ring there are but if a boxer was to box noholds barred he could be quite dangerous, you know. Errr, Mike Tyson maybe?!

Hello, Im new to the forum.

Anyone that trains in any style of fighting or self defence is going to better than those who dont. No one art is comparable to the next. No one style is better than the next. Those who get wrapped up in comparisons will only prevent themselves from learning more. Cobie Wells
