Leicester Shootfighters – Boxing Session by JD Hylton 21st Sept 2011
Session 2 Co-ordination, Rhythm and Timing
All physical skills require coordination of muscles in order to move limbs/the body in certain way to achieve an optimum balance, which results in an efficient and meaningful outcome. In order to move, balance, throw punches, defend punches etc we need good coordination between our balance, posture, stance, shape and anticipation.
Coordination is the ability to repeatedly execute a sequence of movements smoothly and accurately. This may involve the senses, muscular contractions and joint movements.
Everything that we participate in requires the ability to coordinate our limbs to achieve a successful outcome – from walking to the more complex movements of athletic events like the pole vault.
