There isn't one. You go in a ring and punch him and that is how you determine his skill level.
Even so, Judo will turn you into a piece of rawhide, as will any similar wrestling art. If you can box well and wrestle well, you're golden. I've seldom met tougher folks than those in my Judo club.
I boxed long ago when I was in the army. I still train it some 30 years later. Even at my adavanced age, boxing is useful to set up Judo/BJJ. My knees aren't what they once were and I don't have the flexibility in my legs I had when I was a kid, so I don't think it's a very good idea to train like Muay Thai (especially to be on the receiving end during training). I'll stick with a blend of boxing and grappling, as long as I can crawl I can grapple Lol.
Boxing + Judo together cover a lot of territory. In fact, three boxing punches and maybe four or five judo moves would cover most self defence situations if practised seriously.
Are you leaving out the jab, cross, hook or uppercut in your 3 punches?
Boxing punches + 4 basic leg skill should be a good combination.
1. Front cut (1st side - attack outside of your opponent's right leg):
2. Scoop kick (2nd side - attack inside of your opponent's right leg):
3. Inner hook (3rd side - attack inside of your opponent's left leg):
4. Outer hook (4th side - attack outside of your opponent's left leg):
Uppercut. It's a great boxing move against opponents who cover up the other stuff, but is perhaps unnecessary in a self defense situation.
I feel like it would be useful for someone getting up into your face, where you dont have space to throw a long range punch, and are in a situation where you dont want to throw them
What are the options in your area. For most people practice and convenience are synonymous. You are on the right track I feel.
The uppercut is probably the least useful punch, from an opportunity to throw it standpoint. But it’s quite possibly the most devastating punch when it lands.
If you start the fight with your hands low. They will probably never see the punch.
And you can create space using a shoulder bump and get that uppercut off pretty easily.
I love an uppercut. It is my baby, my pride and joy, my mama, my *****.
If we fight you have to get in reach of me at some point. Or we just stand there and do the Monty Python thing - “Now, go away or I shall taunt you a second time”
And you know who the easiest people in the world to hit with an uppercut are?
People who have no respect for uppercuts.
I think dropbear hit the nail on the head on when it’s good to use. If your hands are down when you realize you’re being attacked, it’s the best strike to throw. Plus, no ones looking for an uppercut
You’ve both motivated me to start throwing more uppercuts at my BOB XL. And to play around with throwing a shoulder before the uppercut.
I throw them at my BOB, but it’s honestly an afterthought. Not anymore. I mainly throw a straight right to the liver or spleen followed by a right uppercut when I’m working them.
