I went to a TKO gym last night. It has a lot of heavy bags, a ring and octagon. It was once a UFC gym. I did their boxing routine last night. Boxing is great and you can get fairly decent at it quickly. For my tastes now tho in my 40’s, I find traditional martial arts more fun. Specifically WC. For those that have done traditional martial arts most of their life I can see how changing to boxing would be fun. Boxing gets boring to me. You will get in great shape though with boxing and really have an effective base.
