    Getting back into boxing

    Since it appear imminent that I will be losing my teaching contract for two of my classes each week (over a totally personal vendetta, not for any real reason that anybody can/will vocalize to me), I am going to have some free time.

    I do not deal well with free time, and the No Limits Boxing Club is just down the street from me, so I am debating getting back into boxing, especially soince I seem to be in good shape after wrestling again.

    I want opinions, insults, and maybe even a bit of moral support here so fire away guys.

    Here are the Pros/Cons:

    Cons:
    I haven't boxed in about a decade
    I will be the oldest guy there outside the coach
    4 concussions
    Bad right shoulder and knee

    Pros:
    I'm stronger and faster now than I was when I last boxed, as well as heavier
    I'm medically cleared to wrestle, so my head and body must be in pretty good shape despite everything else
    I like humiliating guys younger than me

    Well, if you are infact stronger and faster than when you last boxed and you did alright a decade ago, surely it will be even better.

          Do it you lazy old bastard, just don't bug young people like myself about 'the good ol days', its the best way to lose respect.

          If you haven't done it in a decade, it should be a reawakening experience for you, where everything is new again :)
          have fun, theres no boxing near my house :(

            I hope someone catches you with a lucky cross and you die of a brain hemorrhage.

                      Never let age hold you back!!! Unless they won't let you take your walker into the ring.

                        Mr. Kicker, I take it from your name you like to kick women during sex and not during sex, is this correct?
                        And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

                            While I'm sure you're more than capable of doing anything you set your mind and body to, I would be a little cautious about the 4 concussions. Why not think about starting Muay Thai, instead of boxing? You'll take less head shots in Muay Thai, and the ones that you will take, will be a lot less punishing than a full tilt boxing punch. Because of the potential to get kicked or kneed, your opponent will be delivering punches at distances a little greater than you'd otherwise face from a traditional boxing opponent. Thus your chance of getting hit hard enough to trigger a concussion is diminished, while maybe only slightly, its still worth considering.

                            Good luck!

                              What does 4 concussions mean, medically, anyways?
