Non contact Boxing is introduced to the student at an early stage and generally consists of four types of punches, all other punches basically being variants of these; the jab, hook, uppercut and cross. Students are encouraged to seek out maximum power in every punch from the jab to the cross. We do not teach Boxing as a means to enter a ring and face an opponent and fight an agreed number of rounds. If forced into combat our aim is not to ware down the opposition but to settle the dispute as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Utilising a vast array of equipment students learn various attacking combinations, blocking, weaving & evasion tactics, footwork and the ability to defend themselves.
GOYARARU MUKA BAZI
Muki Boxing is an ancient form of bare-knuckle boxing and considered by many to be the roughest form of unarmed fighting Arts in India and possible anywhere in the world. Practitioners would harden their fists by striking against hard objects like trees and stoney surfaces, testing themselves by breaking rocks or coconuts. The Indian government banned Muki Boxing for being too dangerous, but open practice without actual full combat still continued using the more acceptable name of Muka Bazi. Rough translation; Muka, means `fist` and Bazi, meaning study, ceremony, way etc. Therefore Muka Bazi means `The Path to Muki`.
Muka Bazi is not just the study of attaining physical power, but the harnessing, controlling and guiding of the intellectual and emotional energies created.
Careful strengthening and conditioning of the mind and body is an essential part of Goyararu training.
The absence of kicking in both these forms indicate that a devastating fighting Art need not have recourse to the legs to be truly effective.
