THIS IS AN IMAGINARY FIGHT BETWEEN YOU AND INVISIBLE OPPONENT. THE IDEA IS TO PUT TOGETHER A SERIES OF PUNCHES TO OUT- MANOEUVRE YOUR IMAGINARY SPARRING PARTNER. YOU WILL PROBABLY FEEL A BIT SILLY AT FIRST DANCING AROUND THE ROOM CHASING AN INVISIBLE ENEMY BUT IT WON’T BE LONG UNTIL ALL IS FORGOTTEN IN A HAIL OF JABS, HOOKS AND CROSSES. SHADOW BOXING IS VERY EASY TO PICK UP AND YOU MAY BE SURPRISED HOW THERAPEUTIC AND EFFECTIVE AN EXERCISE IT IS! FIGHTING STANCE!
