Denny Denholm's Bible of Boxing
This book is dedicated to my first boxing coach and biggest inspiration in boxing
Archie Mackay (RIP brother) 1957 - 2010
Welcome to the Bible of Boxing - this is my way of teaching this Great Art.
I have been active in this sport for over thirty years and am still learning new things each day. I enjoy training everyone in boxing from fitness enthusiast, amateurs and professionals alike. I believe that every man and woman should know how to defend themselves, and boxing is the foundation from where I teach that.
Learning how to become a boxer should be, in my opinion, a school curriculum for every nation. Boxing is not only for the young or a person with a dream of being the World Champion and it's not just the sport for the poor kid who is escaping the hardest challenges of their young life, although there are many of them in thousands of gyms.
Boxing is for everyone and in my experience, has become my passion, family and my life. The Art of Boxing is not easy for the beginner. There is so much to think about if you are serious about learning the Art. Every muscle in your body needs to be conditioned, each weakness in your mind strengthened, and every aspect of your life changed.
The Sport is not for everyone but the Art should be
Boxing is a mindset, a lifestyle, a family, a home and a place that breeds champions, mentors and legends.
Understanding the journey of a boxer, is in my opinion, one of the most liberating human experiences. It touches your emotions and challenges fears and takes you so far out of your comfort zone that you will never be the same again once you've embraced it. One thing for sure is that once you have learned how to box properly, you will always have the tools to become fighting fit for the rest of your life. No matter who you are.
A professional boxer lives for this sport and knows only too well the sacrifice that they have to put into training as they master the Art of Boxing. It takes countless hours of pain to be in extreme fighting condition and well prepared to climb into the ring.
I share with you throughout this book the ‘foundations’ to becoming a boxer. By learning these skills, you will have the tools to strengthen your body and mind. Whilst at the same time increasing your confidence and ability to stand up for yourself in any situation. Not only in the ring but in everyday life.
At the beginning of 2015 my wife and I were fortunate enough to be able to train at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Boxing Gym in Hollywood whilst Manny Pacquiao was preparing for his fight with Floyd Mayweather. We trained at the Wild Card for two months as boxers (not trainers). It was one of the best things I have ever done in my life. Being able to train next to professional national and world champions, up and coming to seasoned professionals alike. As a coach and Boxing Club owner, I learnt a lot and made the finishing touches to this World Class Boxing Bible.
WHY ARE YOU FIGHTING?
It would be awesome if I were in a position to declare to you that there was no need to learn how to fight and defend yourself. Unfortunately, it is my sincere duty to shout out to you from afar, “YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO FIGHT!!”
The truth is, we live in a tough, cruel world, which is constantly changing and the majority of us live humbly in a very rich society. Crime is never too far away from our communities have drug addicts, men and women who are depressed and unemployment is never too far away. The fear of losing everything is a very real because if we miss a few payments on our bills it is the hard reality.
THIS IS WHY I HAVE COME OUT OF THE GYM AND INTO SOCIETY
Use your talents and knowledge so that you can train like a professional and live your life as the champion. Know that because you are a boxer, you have limited the chances of being bullied or abused. Be strong and keep close to my website and make sure you say hello on FaceBook, YouTube and anywhere else you see me.
