Recently I found myself in a couple of situations where it all ended well but after I tought to myself.. damn, I would NOT now how to defend myself. I'm about 5'7 at 165-170 lbs, depending on how active I am. Usually if someone at a bar starts talking ****, I'm their choice 'cause I don't seem that much of a threath. There's a kickboxing gym opening nearby, and I'm seriously thinking to join in just to learn how to fight properly and boost my self-confidence. I did some martial arts as a kid, but now I'm just not flexible at all, have shoulder issues.. so I'm overthinking it I guess.. Should I start with training and would I benefit mentally and physically? Do any of you have experiences where your training has helped you to be more confident in these situations where dudes just pick on you for no reasons?
