    Greetings Everyone

    Newbie to the forum. Just wanting to say high.

    Always been interested in combat of many forms. I've also always been a big guy, and decided to do something I'm interested in to get in better shape. Will be joining a boxing gym in my area and will move on from there.

    Hi Allowaycar, have you any previous MA experience?

      You have chosen wisely.
      You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

          Not that it's a big concern, but make sure they spar. My friend joined a boxing gym once and SAID they didn't spar. It's not horribly reliable, but there probably are some boxing gyms that don't do it (so make sure you find one of the many that do).
          I think only idiots assume that someone who trains for the ring can't make the switch to the street as soon as things change. - dweidman

            I can't imagine a boxing gym that competes that doesn't spar:shock:

              I never said they competed. Also, he was only there for a few months, so he could have meant that HE didn't spar, but the way he said it led me to believe that they didn't spar. It's hardly important as long as allowaycar finds one of the 99.99999999% of schools that does spar.

                Nope, I have no real MA experience.

                Thanks for the advice on looking for a gym. I plan on putting together a list of all the gyms in my area and going and talking to the operators. Try to find some good knowledgable people who are willing to work with someone totally inexperienced.

                  That's a good start...
                  Good luck, and welcome to Bullshido.
