Totts was thinking of getting into white collar boxing at work, it seems ever increasing in popularity and a good way for the gyms to make money.
I don't want this to be a case of another million dollar baby, and admitedly Im terrified, but totts is no slouch when it comes to getting off the couch, so could I be a 50 Cent honey? oh know that just sounds so wrong.
back to the post, can you box, what titles do you have and what are your views on the sport?
The path to enlightenment is not a path at all, it's actually a metaphor for the time it takes for you to allow yourself to be happy with who you already are, where you're already at, and what you already have - no matter what.

I boxed in the Marines. It's a tough sport that requires a tremendous amount of discipline and training. You have to train a lot before you're good enough to really compete and then you have to keep up on conditioning.
I boxed as a welterweight at 145 lbs and I did okay. I lost more than I won but I enjoyed it. Boxing is a mix of quick feet, quick reactions, strategy, and conditioning. It always hurt the three days after a bout if it went long enough but I gobbled Motrin and used ice packs. Luckily I never had any serious head damage or major busted noses.
I love all the martial arts and I enjoy training. Nothing gives a person confidence more than being able to close with a stranger and beat them to a pulp. It's a safe environment in the ring and you're not a bar so everything's fine.
A lot of people don't like it. It takes a while to get used to sound and feel of getting your face punched.
