i always imagined that to box, you work with a trainer, practice on your own, and the spar a lot. it never really seemed, to me, that you could learn good boxing in a group class. am i teh wrong?
Big Shot - Bro my best advice as far as boxing goes and speaking from experience. Only way to truly learn the science is to get in the ring and spar as much as you can with trainer in corner. You can learn all the basics and think you have a solid foundation until you get in the ring. Once you start getting hit, it changes your game plan drastically. Unlike a speed bag or heavy bag, your target now will hit back. My opinion is to get as much sparing in as you can, only way to learn how to fight, is to fight. Sparing is a great source there of.I respectfully disagree. Do not spar until you have mastered the basics. Sparring as a beginner only reinforces bad habits
