The only thing standing in between a boxer and getting knocked out by his opponent is his defense. A fighter will use a guard to avoid and block punches while still allowing him to strike his opponent.

The art of pugilism, or otherwise known as the profession or hobby of boxing, has been around for centuries and has developed over the years into the form and martial arts discipline most people are familiar with today.
Also known as “The Sweet Science”, experts harp on its intricate and nuanced techniques. The full-contact combat sport, enjoyed and practiced by many since the early years of humanity, is a collection of offensive and defensive moves.
If you’re just starting to take up the sport, then you have probably heard of its basic punches, as well as its advanced tactics. You know your jabs, your crosses, your uppercuts, and your hooks. But when you reach the advanced stages of boxing training, the focus begins to shift from offense to defense, and a large part of defense in boxing is counterbpunching.
In boxing, there is a myriad of variations to the counter punch, with different combinations used in different ways. It is almost impossible to list down every single exact counter punch in boxing because there are just so many ways they can be utilized.

The recent uproar over an MMA fighter's beatdown of a tai chi practitioner is a virtual case study for Bruce Lee's emphasis on real world application of the fighting arts."Organized despair." That's the phrase Bruce Lee often used to characterize many of the prevailing practices within the martial arts world.
Bruce actually had an entire arsenal of these kinds of colorful criticisms, and he wasn't shy about using them: "the classical mess," "dryland swimming," "patternized robots." He employed these terms to argue against where he saw the martial arts going astray, and to illustrate his opinion of how many practitioners were merely engaged in choreographed routines, or as he put it, "artificial techniques … ritualistically practiced to simulate actual combat." . . .

Everyone loves a good submission finish in an MMA fight. Grapplers, wrestlers, BJJ specialists, and sometimes even strikers turn to submissions as a means to end a fight. And out of all the submissions, nothing is more devastating than a choke.
Ask any MMA fighter or BJJ practitioner, and they’ll tell you that joint submissions, are much easier to resist than a choke. Unlike a joint submission, a choke challenges the neck strength of one’s opponent, testing him/her until he/she is forced to tap. Because of this possibility, a choke has more potential to end any fight as opposed to a joint submission.

The real Ip Man was known within the Hong Kong martial arts community, but he was far from a household name. While teaching Wing Chun was his primary source of income, he never advertised his school and refused to even hang up a sign. His younger students in the 1950s and 1960s certainly looked up to him as a role model. In accounts of his school they remember not just his great skill but also his humor, gentleness and genuine friendship in an era when Kung Fu teachers and students did not always have close relationships.
For the current generation of students in both Hong Kong and the west, who have never had the opportunity to meet Ip Man, asking in what ways he functions as a “role model” becomes a more complicated question. He has gone on from being remembered as “the teacher of Bruce Lee” to becoming a popular media property in his own right. The Ip Man that most of us are familiar with is not a humble Kung Fu teacher in Kowloon, but a local hero from Foshan who single handedly defended the honor of the southern Chinese martial arts (and identity) by wiping out a room full of Japanese karate students after defeating a number of wandering northern wushu masters in artistically choreographed duels.
