Yes, and I used to believe my kung fu helped me more than it really did.Quote:
Ya it's been tough meshing these together, the only advantage is that i didn't have to learn how to rotate my hips at all when i punch since i definitely have that down pretty solid already, and i'm pretty tough to hit as a result of the karate foot work (at least as far as getting away).
Practice boxing and forget trying to mesh the **** together. The real problem? 1 day a week of boxing is not going to override 9 years of Karate, especially when you continue to train Karate diligently.
Also, lose the whole karate vs. boxing attitude (no not the negative) and just train.
