tvp is the boxing method created by the authors with the objective of developing creative boxers with an intuitive feel to use the right technique in the right situation against the right opponent.
tvp is a method which focuses on a three stage development process -technique, variety and predictability.
Correct technique and principles ensures that the techniques are delivered most effectively in terms of end result, most efficiently in terms timing and most economically in terms of energy wastage.
Variety is ensuring the fighter possesses a sufficient array of techniques to cope with different situations and opponents.
The Predictability phase is ensuring the fighter has creativity and the ability to deliver techniques in a way which is unexpected, yet effective.
"tvp - comprehensive boxing concepts" begins by discussing the relevance of core principles which are taken from the latest research in sports science. Some of these core principles are;
- Core attack principles: explosion, broken rhythm, bodyshifting, tempo changes, relax and acceleration,
- Core defensive principles: retraction, meeting the attack and breaking off
The principles behind specific attacking and defending techniques are explained as well the processes to deliver the techniques most effectively.
Another unique element of the book is the presentation of the authors boxing forms, which are designed to develop different forms of movement and different attacks and defences from a variety of positions, testing and acting as an evaluator of the fighters capabilities.
Training strategies and the adoption of different training phases is advised to ensure optimal development of the fighter. A chapter dedicated to surviving in the ring and ring strategies ensures that the training fulfils the fighters potential.
Principles from sports science in the form of SAQ (speed, agility and quickness) training have been modified for boxing by the SAQ's chief coach and Managing Director, Alan Pearson.
