Western Boxing is perhaps one of the oldest and most widely practiced martial arts in the world. Incorporating striking like jabs, crosses, hooks, uppercuts, footwork and head movement the art of boxing may seem simple, but it is complex in detail, extremely effective in bot sport, fitness and especially self defense and allows for a wide variety of arts to be incorporated along-side it’s biomechanics and tactics. It is an exciting arts, and one we have been teaching at AMAA for over two decades. Panantukan (Filipino Boxing) is a close-combat fighting system and is also known as “Filipino boxing”, “street boxing” or “dirty boxing” Consider it striking that is aimed at maximum efficiency. In contrast to “normal” competitive boxing, Panatukan has no rules, and that is why it is a tremendously rich art in the education of self defenses. Panatuken uses the whole body as a weapon, allowing you to employ the clinch range, incorporate elbows, head-butts and any other tactics and self defense tools into the art. It is a very effective empty hand fighting system, that when combined with our Boxing, Muay Thai, Jeet Kune Do, Kali and Brazilian JiuJitsu curriculum makes the practitioner unstoppable in any range. Both Boxing and Panantukan are not based on using strength or unnecessary force, but focus instead on using the core principles and correct body mechanics, which are taught in all AMAA classes.
