Will Slap Boxing Get Huge in Bodybuilding? – IronMag Bodybuilding Weblog


by Christian Duque

Slap boxing is a particularly weird passtime. I’ve no drawback calling bodybuilding a sport, regardless of the actual fact many individuals have misgivings about it. Lots of people assume it’s only a pastime, a pageant, or a pastime. Okay. Effectively, if that’s so, then I’m positive these identical individuals wouldn’t fault me for, maybe, being overly-critical about slap boxing. It is a state of affairs the place two individuals face one another and take turns slapping the hell out of the opposite. There’s judges, cameras, and followers. That final ingredient is vital.

Individuals can’t get sufficient of those matches. You’ve acquired women and men, of all ages, from all elements of the world, throwing their hats within the ring. What’s really totally different is that this phenomenon has gone from being a very underground state of affairs, to at least one that’s acquired the likes of Logan Paul and Arnold Schwarzenegger turning it onto the mainstream. For somebody on the extent of Arnold to wish to get entangled on this, implies that it’s acquired the potential to be actually common, and extra importantly, actually worthwhile. Simply take a look at what Dana White has been in a position to obtain with MMA in 20 years. It’s larger than boxing, it’s not depending on any state or nation, which means they might have a UFC in Seattle or Singapore, and everybody will attend and purchase Pay Per View. What different sport are you able to say that about?

If the followers can’t get sufficient, you’re going to have distributors, licensing, and residuals. At its core, it doesn’t appear all that thrilling, however that’s as a result of I’m taking a look at it with a sure diploma of skepticism. That’s why I’m a author and never a promoter. To me, there’s nothing all that thrilling about individuals exchanging slaps, but when we take a look at the game’s reception in Europe and Asia, then it stands to motive it’ll be big in America. There, I lastly referred to as it a sport.

In fact it’s a sport, it’s simply SO bizarre. For starters, there’s an plain power part. Whereas this isn’t a physique-based sport, it requires numerous full physique energy. The rivals should have wonderful hand-eye coordination, the power to hit on a quantity events, and accomplish that with a substantial amount of accuracy. Very like boxing, it’s not a lot in regards to the amount of hits, as a lot because it’s in regards to the high quality. The important thing can be to supply the utmost quantity of pressure potential. They’re not attempting to tickle one another. That is an aggressive, violent sport. Of us can’t actually knock it for that, then go watch MMA.

Combined Martial Arts might be probably the most violent sport on the market, from native struggle nights to the PPV choices. Individuals can’t get sufficient and never solely can’t they get sufficient, however they wish to take part as nicely. Simply take a look at what number of MMA gyms have sprung up all through the nation. Who is aware of, perhaps we’ll begin seeing Slap Boxing dojos in your hometown gyms. Afterall, if the demand is there, somebody’s going to capitalize on it. And you recognize, perhaps my preliminary skepticism is just based mostly on the actual fact I’ve by no means heard of this earlier than.

To be trustworthy, the primary time I noticed all of this slap boxing stuff, I had a flashback to Kali Muscle’s Slap Metropolis. That’s somewhat totally different although. There you had a yoked, juiced to the gills ex-con slapping younger punks on the again after taking pre exercise powder at large health expos. That’s not a sport – it’s simply bizarre. Slap Boxing is fairly bizarre, too, however perhaps not that bizarre. For those who slap these individuals, they’ll slap the hell out of you, again. It’s additionally organized round guidelines, referees and so forth.

That mentioned, from the appears of the strikes, I’d think about a few of these of us might simply have damaged cheekbones, noses, perhaps lose some tooth and/or perhaps even undergo concussions. Whereas it’s not closed fist punching, you’ve got an individual standing nonetheless whereas one other makes use of an unlimited quantity of complete physique energy, all channeled by means of one slap in opposition to the nonetheless individual’s face. There’s no telling what sort of accidents might outcome. And I imply completely past swollen lips and eyes. TBI’s, or traumatic mind accidents, require MRI’s and CT Scans to be able to develop into recognized. There’s no telling if the more durable slaps might trigger a lot of these very critical accidents. Additionally, not like boxing and MMA, all of the hits in Slap Boxing go to the top and in contrast to these different sports activities, the individual receiving the blows can’t even put up their guard. They only stand there and take it. It simply looks as if a extremely dangerous concept, however I’m only a author; I’ve to report on what persons are doing. With guys like Logan Paul and Arnold now concerned on this sport, it’s certain to get rather a lot larger, very quickly.

Apart from power, whoever does this sport might want to have a really excessive ache threshold. That is frequent in aggressive, violent sports activities like wrestling, boxing, soccer, hockey and most positively MMA. One other sport that additionally requires an extremely excessive ache resistance, can be armwrestling. Athletes don’t simply should endure the ache concerned with coaching for meets, however they’ve to have the ability to ignore very uncomfortable conditions, persevere, and be capable to make use of power by means of that ache, to be able to greatest the competitors. I don’t know that that’s one thing simply anybody can do. In actual fact, Slap Boxing is likely to be a sport for these few freaks who don’t really feel ache. Perhaps there’s people who do these meets that not solely don’t really feel ache, however may be capable to snicker at it. There are such people on the market, loopy as it might appear, who don’t really feel ache. That mentioned, I’m fairly such that they’re the exception.

Along with power and the power to take and ignore ache, there’s an plain stage of technique and precision that’s required. Very like how a boxer has to attach, both with single punches or combos, there’s a science to how these lovers strike, what a part of the face they goal for, and when and the place they make use of totally different variations. To an outsider, this may very well be defined as nothing greater than two bozos, counting on brute power, swatting one another until one falls down. Perhaps that’s all it’s, however perhaps that’s all it takes for a man or gal who simply will get knocked out. For those who’re desirous to be the most effective, you’re going to price range your power, take solely as many hits as crucial, and greatest your competitors as rapidly and effortlessly as potential.

The extra I give it some thought, the extra Slap Boxing is unquestionably a sport, it simply appears extremely harmful. I additionally assume individuals in all probability dig seeing on a regular basis, regular of us pull that change and develop into maniacs. I imply, it’s a must to have a screw unfastened to have the ability to do that. That mentioned, think about how loopy it will be, if a competitor didn’t get offended. Like think about in the event that they have been all smiles earlier than, throughout, after slapping the hell out of one other individual’s face. That’d be an entire psycho, proper? However that, too, would in all probability get peoples’ rocks off. Who doesn’t love an absolute nutcase? Geez…, I might see this getting actually large, I simply can’t imagine ARNOLD of all individuals is concerned on this, however then once more, he’s all the time been a trendsetter. By the point I get it and settle for this anomaly as being a sport, he’ll in all probability have made a billion {dollars} off of it. It’s simply how it’s, of us. It’s simply how it’s.

What’s your tackle Slap Boxing? Is it a sport, a freak present, what? And do you assume Slap Boxing will get large in bodybuilding (e.g. as an add-on at bodybuilding present expos [like arm wrestling and powerlifting] and/or – at big worldwide health expos [like the Arnold or Olympia]?).
