BOXER'S START-UP: A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO BOXING by Doug Werner

Tracks Publishing
140 Brightwood Avenue, Chula Vista, CA
www.startupsports.com
Genre: Sports/Non-fiction
Rating: Very Good
ISBN: 1884654096, $12.95, 160 pp.


For those interested in physical fitness, this may be just the book for you. The sport of boxing has grown in popularity over the past few years, not so much to fight, but as a general good workout with the added benefit of learning to defend oneself.

Boxer’s Start-Up is well organized and will provide the beginner with sufficient basics to get started. There are lots of pictures to help you learn about the gear, stances, basic footwork, punches, combinations, working with the heavy bag, basic defense and counters, the boxer’s workout, and sparring.

Werner has added some history and a boxer’s journal to complete this little book. For the price, you’ll get a lot of punch for your buck.
