    Does this sound like a plan?

    I've been pretty stressed out lately, between pressure at work and at home it seems like I'm almost constantly under the boiler and I'm beginning to show the strain. I'm thinking about joining a boxing gym, and having a few full contact fights, I think it might be an effective catharsis... anyway...what's your take on this?

    Like a fox!

    Maybe it'll knock some sense into you while you're at it ;) Go for it, haven't you seen Fight Club?

    I've done a little boxing and there are two types of victory, the type where they hold up your arm to the crowd, and the type where the other guy bleeds and you don't. I only got the second type.

    Sounds like a good idea. But I'm the resident forum fitness fanatic, so any physical training is a good idea IMO. :drool:

    can't you just play raquetball? why put your head in jeopardy of someone trying to break it?

    actually it will help oyu let off some steam, but make sure you are safe about it...fight club style fights are a bad idea...but in a gym with gloves and a first aid kit is much safer.

    have at it!

    Go for it, if I didn't have my Hapkido tourneys I would go crazy in a month. Just make sure you're not fighting angry. . .that will lead to problems. Have you ever done anything like this before? Can be loads of fun or another source of stress, if your new just remember to practice before you actually get in the ring.

    I actually haven't seen that movie yet, since I've been living in a cave...

    I should mention though, that I'm no stranger to fighting, I have a black belt in Kenpo and a few years ago I did some full contact kick boxing and shoot-fighting (for those of you who don't know...that doesn't involve firearms ;)) so in other words, getting punched repeatedly in the head would not be a new experience to me. But I'm sure most of you have guessed that already.

    I'd like to get into boxing too. Only a few things stop me from doing so.

    1) I'm not the most physically fit of people. I don't believe I'd have sufficient muscle mass to last very long in a boxing match. Endurance a plenty, but little weakling muscles.
    2) Nowhere to go that I know of. I really have no clue where the hell I could go to learn some boxing stuff and to train for it or whatever. Martial arts, sure, there are thousands of them all over the place. But not many high visibility boxing joints.
    3) Dental plan. I'm not quite sure the dental plan I've got would be good enough to cover the expenses I'd be more than likely to rack up. I have a history of smashing teeth. Figure, in my two seasons as a baseball player, I broke 4 teeth. In the rest of my life, I smashed an additional 6, 2 of which had been broken during baseball.... It's a wonder I'm not already using a denture... :teeth:

    But I think it'd be a good idea. It's something that'll allow you to vent your frustration and such, and release it in a healthy manner rather than bottle it up.

    Just the thought of it brings out something primal in me...I like it. I have to do this now.

    Have fun with it, but don't overdo it to cause your body's injury.
