    Shadow Boxing in public is A.O.K. As long as no one is looking. Some of you may disagree, well let's face it, it's not as gay as posting it on youtube.

    <object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSFvAE7tTrk name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSFvAE7tTrk type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

    Wow, to look gay and suck tremendously at it. That's a new low.

    No, mostly because I don't like the inevitable attention. I'm quiet like that. I see my douchebag co-worker bragging about his rebreakable board for ATA TKD class, I keep my mouth shut. Same thing with shadowboxing. I don't need people thinking I'm a poser.

    So, shadow boxing is a bit embarrassing when performed in public?

    Try kata. No, even worse, try Aikido Kihon Dosa!

    At least with shadow-boxing the surprised onlooker knows you are punching - sort of.

    My answer to dudes who shadow-box in gyms is to go and smash the floor-mounted bag into the ground and walk off. Well, OK if they look good I leave them to it and prey on idiots.

    LOL - last week some Polish guys came in 'sparring' and posing. After my bag smash stunt they asked me for lessons. Then I told them it was Aikido. Gobsmacked. No idea Aikido included punches. Sent them to a guy who offers Karate and Aikido as I don't instruct any more.

    The ratio of a room in a gym with mirrors to the number of prats who think they look good in it is 1:20 in any given hour. Me, face on I look good, side on the belly indicates that I am well past realistic pugilism. All rooms should be equipped with mirrors!

    I shadowbox around the apartment much to the dismay of my wife.

    Sometimes in the office bathroom too.

    i used to spar with a friend of mine basically all around campus, but shadow boxing outside of my home/gym? i prefer not to be associated with the type of people who crochet things that aren't there.

    Actually, when I've got a moment at work or whatever, I often WANT to... but the idea is damned embarrassing, mostly because I don't want to be the kind of douche who is all 'HA HA I DO MARTIAL ARTS LOOK AT ME' because they're as bad as, say, the guys who are all 'I AM SO GAY CHECK ME OUT I AM SUPER SUPER GAY' (who are a step up from the 'LOOK HOW STRAIGHT I AM!!!!' guys).

    Then I do it anyway, because practice is practice and I'll take any chance I can get. Anybody who doesn't like it can have a waist-chambered reverse punch from a deep front stance.

    Naruto doesn't wear goggles. Uchiha Obita does, or rather did, before he got all killed and crushed and shit. I don't see what's wrong with practicing your shit at work when you're bored. Yes, it is a little nerdy and gay and shit, but whatever, you know.
    Ohh... my bad. Please, don't shadow box in front of the urinal anymore dude.
    Please.
    For the sake of all of us.

    I have a friend that does WC and he would start doing forms in the frozen food section of Trader Joes. I would stand horrified and pretend to study the ingredients of a packet of green beans with the utmost scrutiny.
