Definition of Style

"Style" is often defined as the strategic approach a fighter takes during a bout. No two fighters' styles are alike, as it is determined by that individual's physical and mental attributes. There are main three styles in boxing: Out-fighter ("Boxer"), Brawler (or slugger), and In-fighter ("Swarmer"). These styles may be divided into several special subgroups, such as counter puncher, etc. The main philosophy of the styles is, that each style has an advantage over one, but disadvantage over the other one. It follows the rock-paper-scissors scenario - boxer beats brawler, swarmer beats boxer, and brawler beats swarmer. Rock-paper-scissors is a hand game played by two people. The game is also known as roshambo, or by other orderings of the three items (with "stone" sometimes substituting for "rock").[1][2] The game is often used as a choosing method in a way similar to coin flipping, drawing straws, or throwing dice. Unlike truly random selection methods, however, rock-paper-scissors can be played with a degree of skill by recognizing and exploiting non-random behavior in opponents. The players usually count aloud to four, or speak the name of the game (e.g. "Rock Paper Scissors!" or "Ro Sham Bo!"), each time either raising one hand in a ist and swinging it down on the count or holding it behind. On the third count (saying, "Shoot!" or "Go!" "Scissors!" or "Bo!"), the players change their hands into one of three gestures, which they then "throw" by extending it towards their opponent. Variations include a version where players use only three counts before throwing their gesture (thus throwing on the count of "Scissors!" or "Bo!", or a version where they shake their hands three times before "throwing." The gestures are (in the 3 gesture version): Rock, represented by a clenched fist. Scissors, represented by two fingers extended and separated, sometimes coming together Paper, represented by an open hand, with the fingers extended and touching, in order to represent a sheet of paper (horizontal). The objective is to select a gesture which defeats that of the opponent. Gestures are resolved as follows: Rock blunts or breaks scissors: rock defeats scissors. Scissors cut paper: scissors defeats paper. Paper covers, sands or captures rock: paper defeats rock. If both players choose the same gesture, the game is tied and the players throw again. The game is usually played in Best Out Of 3 Series, but the players can choose to how many victories they will play this game.
