I apologize in advance if this should have been included in an existing post. A common question that comes up among the WC practitioners is how do we modify or improve it, while still maintaining its core principles. Boxing is usually the most common comparison and art that is most often blended in with WC. I want to rephrase the question and ask what can a boxer gain from WC? Boxers are extremely proficient with their hands. WC fights often turn into what essentially looks like sloppy boxing. Some things that come to mind when look at both styles: Boxers are light on their feet. WC uses the anchored stance. WC seems to favor elbow strikes and blocks. Boxing has more punches. Center Line theory is not exclusive to WC IMO. Boxing, arguably, has better long range and strikes from multiple angles. WC, arguably, has advantages with blocking. Boxing has advantages in overall movement. I think a boxer can gain several things: defend and attack simultaneously. Better elbow strikes (being boxers don't use them lol), more direct striking, kicking and anchored stability when close range.
