I think the obvious part is breathing while striking, exhaling on every kick and punch thrown. However, I'm unsure when it's comes to defense. When I slip or duck a punch, i will typically exhale, I feel it allows me to move faster and out of the way. If I shell up, i will exhale everytime My opponent throws a punch and I block it. I don't know if this is the right breating technique though. I feel I lose out on deep breaths while doing this. If i need to block hooks, turning the body while protecing the side of my head, I will also exhale.
How do you guys breathe while being on the defense?
