The History of Boxing
Boxing in the western world traces its history back to ancient Greece; believing that the gods themselves engaged in fisticuffs, the ancient Greeks added it to the Olympic Games in 688 BC. Since then, boxing has evolved through a variety of rules and styles. Modern boxing can be traced the Marquess of Queensberry rules established in 1867.
During the Industrial Revolution, prizefighting became a common sport of the working class. Many fought as a means of making money, seeking to elevate themselves or their families out of poverty. In 1908, amateur boxing was reintroduced to the Olympic Games, bringing the Grecian tradition full circle.
Today, boxing is widely recognized as a powerful and effective combat sport. Modern boxing focuses on developing powerful, precise punching, skillful footwork and evasive abilities, and a “never say die” mentality. Along with Muay Thai, Wresting, and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, it is considered one of the key training methods for Mixed Martial Arts practitioners.
