Would specific hockey fighting training be a good idea at all?

Fighting in hockey has differences compared to boxing or street-fighting. There are no boxing gloves, but there are unwritten rules most follow and lines that (usually) aren't crossed.

And sometimes I've read of players who in their youth or during the off-season take boxing training or the like, which I'm sure can help, but again, isn't exactly like what would actually be encountered in a real hockey fight.

If someone who actually knew how to "do it right" (probably an ex-player?) opened up a school to teach it, do you think it would get any business? What public/media backlash do you think would occur, if any?

It seems to me that with no NHL games being played anyways, that even some players who are non-fighters would do well to learn how to defend themselves (insert THAT Sedin clip here)....

I think it's better to leave it to the veterans kind of thing... the older fighters always help the younger ones. As a Leaf fan I know Domi helped Belak, Orr helped Brown etc.

Didn't Boogy and his brother running a fighting camp for kids?

Its not exactly a hard thing to learn if you can box or whatever... Balance is your biggest problem...

Yeah he did, I seem to recall him taking a lot of heat for it too. I didn't see anything wrong with it, it's good to know what you're doing if you get into a fight so you don't hurt yourself.

Players who train in boxing can make really effective fighters if they're stable on their skates. Rick Rypien had a really beautiful style to watch.

Yeah I recall that, but I think his intent with it was that young kids would know how to protect themselves in a fight... I liked the idea personally but what do I know eh?

If you really want to become proficient in the pugilistic arts on ice, rent Youngblood, and fast forward to the part where Rob Lowe's dad gives him lessons in the barn.
You're good to go after that.
