    I was considering getting a boxing bag for at home, mainly to let out anger and stress I have in my life. Another question as it just came across in my mind, is it possible from someone to going from having never boxed in their life to a professional in 9 years?

    Hmm okay, I for some reason am scared about boxing or something at my gym though. I don't mind working out there but I think my punches are weak af and I feel that I feel embarrass myself. I mean, its better buying this than Far Cry 5.

    The hell you on about, noone judges you. You're there to improve. Im sure they would have seen worse than you. Just make sure to throw the basic punches a practice them for a week. They won't care, they will teach you. You need a stance before that. Boxing is more than just throwing punches. Boxing clubs are so good will learn how to box, keep up good levels of fitness and discipline. Noone can match an athletes (especially a fighters) discipline. Discipline is the most important aspect in anything you will ever do.

    I know that boxing isn't all about punches, it's about footwork being technical and discipline. Hmm okay I will look into boxing as I might as well, it will be fun. I will look for clubs near me, i'm going to university in Leeds in September so that may be an issue though.

    Everyone has to start from somewhere, but if your not comfortable dont pressure yourself.

    Exactly so noones going to judge you on punches when everything else isn't great and you have never boxed before im guessing? No it shouldn't be! Most Universities have their own boxing clubs! Email Leeds and ask them if they have! Leeds will also have a few boxing clubs anyway, stop making excuses😉

    Yoooo, after my GCSE's I want to start boxing as well.
    Hell, i'm no muscly dude (pretty much stereotypical asain dude) but I was praised when I used to do other Martial Arts for my speed. To bad I have a glass chin, sloppy footwork and slow reaction time/ability to anticipate and dodge punches ;/

    £20 a year what a bargain haha Should be good literally all you need is a speed bag, heavy bag ring, hand wraps, some gloves, a ring, maybe head gear and an alright trainer, im guessing they will use Uni students from sport to train just a guess if not will be a decent trajner anyway! But definitley try go to one before and learn the fundamentals!
