    sparring

    I have trained in boxing for 2 months last summer ,but I had to quit because the summer vacation was over and where I live there is no boxing gym.a few days ago I met someone who trained in kickboxing.does it help my striking if I spar and train with him without having an instructor?

    Depends on how long he's been training or if he's any good. Two months of boxing probably means you still don't know how to box. He very will might become a defacto instructor to you.

    that's cool he might have some things to show you. I don't think you'd get any worse by training with him.

    So should boxing really be in your style field if you boxed for two months a year ago? I mean, if I smoked cigarettes for a month last year I wouldn't call myself a smoker...just my thoughts.

    edited to add:

    But yeah, it couldn't hurt your technique or lack there of to train with this guy, if he knows what he's doing.

    MT is kinda funny, in that there aren't a ton of attacks. There are the basics, a few more advanced moves, and most fighters learn/devlope their own slick tricks. If you have an eye towards fighting, then get a trainer. Not just for the techniques he will show you, but for the conditioning methods, and the motivation to do them.

    MT has some moves that some would call advanced, and yea I sugest learning those from some one who trained for more than two years with a coach. For sparing as many others have said it can't hurt unless he just uses you for a mobile punching bag.

    As far as learning from him, if he is not throwing combos, and switching levels (kicking and punching) in those combs, don't pick up bad habits. As I do always, I suggest light sparing till you get to know the guy, what I call shadow sparing, or what the Thais call Len or play.

    Really, find a gym if you want to learn.
