Mocap Boxing

Mocap (motion capture) Boxing uses the same sensor array as does Police 911 but adds an extra rail to detect punching motions. Plastic protective boxing gloves are provided. To avoid major punches, crouch or shift your weight to make your character duck, dodge right or dodge left. To hit your opponent, make a punching motion during the times he is identified as vulnerable.

This is an exhausting full-body exercise! Punching will tire your arms; crouching will tire your legs.

If you just want to do well in the game it's possible to cheat a bit. When the game requires you to hit your opponent 30 times in a row to knock him out, you will get quite tired and sore if you throw full punches. The cheat is to just wiggle your fist in place in the proper location to trigger the sensor repeatedly. But for the best workout you should scrupulously treat this like a real fight, throwing real punches and dodging appropriately.

Unfortunately, the game logic is weak; you can't hit the opponent except when target areas are specifically identified and it really doesn't matter how fast, hard, or accurate your punches are. So it's not useful from a martial arts perspective. But it is fun and energetic.

Exercise type: There are both aerobic and resistance/weight training aspects. The gloves you lift and wave around are heavy plastic.
