She wants to learn so we can go at it for fun. I am happy she wants to learn because this will help her defend off anyone that maybe tries to rape her. Sure the chances are very slim but its always nice to have.
How do I go about teaching my gf how to box?
If you want her to be able to offend, teach her to belch, fart, shoot a snot rocket, and not wear deoderant or shower.
on the other hand if ya meant defend, then its the same way anyone learns. Mostly by doing.
Look into the boxing threads (theres a couple of them that are on here, mostly by Africa) for more details on proper punching and learning.
Let's agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours may be.
There are self-defence courses for women that teach more effective techniques than boxing. Male rapists tend to have advantages of height and reach and weight over women that require fighting dirty to counter.
Yeah, I can picture her boxing with a 6' guy and not getting the crap beat out of her. Not.
If she's not of similar size, weight, and strength as you, I'm not sure that sparring with here would be that much fun.
As HelsmaN said, a martial art would be a lot more useful, and a self defense course, as Ineligible suggested, would be more quick and dirty.
