    Only been doing it for 4 weeks, mostly for cardiovascular fitness, but I'm really loving it and have learned a lot. It's changed me a lot, both in character and how I look at things.

    I just started boxing in April. Since then I've completely fallen in love with the sweet science and I've been working hard to realize my goal of fighting in some amateur matches.

    Hi folks. I'm Wil, I live in Chicago and I've been boxing on and off half-assedly for many years now, though I follow the sport with my whole ass. Started in the basement with a duffle bag of blankets etc but didn’t' get into a proper gym until I was 19 or so where I bounced around from gym to gym when I was moving around. Got serious about it a few years back and trained almost every day for an am fight but, as most of you know I'm sure, it takes months to get in shape and days to lose it. I got the flu missed my fight, went off to grad school and have been half-assedly training in a crap gym for a few years, learning nothing and getting worse. I joined a much better gym a few weeks ago and am feeling much better about the sport. I'm glad to see so many boxers here and hope to learn a lot from you all.

    Never boxed professionally but did a lot of club boxing especially with golden gloves fighters in NYC. I fought in a kickboxing tournament in MSG a long time ago. My Sensei Jim Powers always taught us boxing along with karate, ju-jitsu & judo. When there was a big fight on TV he would bring one into the dojo & we would watch the bouts especially Ali's fights. Boxing always helped me in amateur karate too. I knew I could take a punch from the boxing but the footwork is an incredible tool for the tool box. The best I ever managed was a bronze medal in the AAU National Championship. I teach my fighters boxing in my small humble dojo the Ronin Martial Arts Club. Just the other day I put the 16 oz. gloves on the little guys. I think I had more fun than they did just watching them go at it. They get the basic mechanics of it though - slipping, parrying, catching, snap away, duck, bob & weave, jab, cross the old 1-2, upper cuts & hooks. I love it. Hey this may be the wrong forum but I just heard that Mayweather & DeLahoya will fight 5/5/07. I can't wait but I'll try to bring that discussion over to the right forum. I stopped fighting when I turned 55. Now I compete in kata, weapons, self defense & breaking. Thanks for listening to an old man.

    I'm Scott and I've been boxing for 2 years now. I unfortunately don't have a place to train since I moved but I have my own heavy bag and a frame for it so I make do as best I can. I never competed, unfortunately, just did some inter-gym matches.

    I'm Bobby, I've been boxing for a couple of years, but not very often of late (musicians schedule). I've got quite a few rounds of hands only sparring under my belt, usually before we kickbox in class, but don't compete. I love watching boxing, and try to be sneaky when I spar, drawing on the wealth of footage I've seen. It doesn't always work, and I get eaten up on the inside more than I like. Many of my favorite boxers were/are short guys, and I'm a lanky,gangly mess.

    not even remotely, I'll be at the ny throwdown sep 30, I love it. I just want to talk to more martial artists, and read more about things. Also, I'm not crazy, but that would be hard to discern from my rantings over there...I have a lot of fun with it on BS...but have an academic streak in me, that will serve me well here. I'm glad for the warm welcome from everyone, I wont post the first BS responses I recieved there, they alone would get me banned here...hehe.

    My name is Byron, I am in Manitoba Canada. I am not currently with a gym, but formerly trained at the Brandon Boxing Club. I am currently working towards brining myself back to shape and rejoining the club sometime this winter, and hope to compete within the year after.

    My current struggle with boxing is deciding which side to fight out of. I naturally go to my right, my feel more comfortable and tactical from the left ( if that makes sense)
