Boxing is an ideal sport for couples seeking a method to connect with a partner. It is unusual that women love its extremeness, dynamism, and accessibility but it isn’t impossible.
Researchers believe that couples practice boxing together benefits their relationship, assuming that when romantic partners release their animosity towards each other in a physical activity like boxing, it lessen verbal fights in a relationship.
It was not until the beginning of the 21st century that men accepted the fact that women can be boxers as well. Since then, coed fighting developed at a furious pace, especially when couples sparred with each other.
Strict rules applied before sparring is the reason coed combat popular today. Women punch men substantially harder than men hit them, and sometimes, men do not hit women by any means.
In any case, that does not mean the male boxers are not having a proper exercise when fighting a female opponent. They believe it time well spent on improving their defensive skills and movements such as bobbing and weaving.
When it comes to female boxers sparring with a male partner, they feel enormously empowered doing so. Both professional and amateur female boxers prefer their male partner to hit them harder to develop their blocking skills and raise their pain tolerance.
Coed Sparring Critics And Alternatives
Despite the popularity in couples sparring with each other over the past decade, some critics consider this practice is not good for relationship. Some say that accidents occurs in the ring all the time and that a romantic partner hardly can get over the fact their mate responsible for such a bad thing to them.
Most men, however, have the tendency to hold back when practicing with a woman, trying to avoid making any pain on them. Many of these men are only practicing and doing it with their romantic partner makes it much better.
