I'm new to self defense and I want to learn boxing. Does anyone know if it's hard to learn and is effective?

I would like to learn boxing for self defense, confidence and as a workout. I%26#039;m only 5%26#039;5%26quot;, 120lbs. Does anyone have any first hand experience with it and could recommend a good way to get started?

Also, what does the average conditioning routine look like for someone trying to gain weight and be able to hit harder, and be more resilient? Do you have to be a certain weight to have it be effective in a fight? Any help or advice would be really appreciated.|||boxing is excellent for both exercise and self defense. boxing doesnt discriminate the small: im almost exactly your size, a little shorter.

anyways, boxing is based on gross motor skills rather than the fine motor skills of most martial arts so the movements are extremely natural. not only does that mean you learn to become proficient rather quickly, but when the sh*t hits the fan you%26#039;re not thinking straight, your training kicks in naturally. besides, the things that really matter in a fight, in a technical sense, are mobility and of course not shying away from a punch. if you%26#039;re small, you%26#039;ll just become particularly adept at it through all the sparring.

pick up some gloves, google a gym in your area, and start training.|||I just started boxing, and it is one hell of a workout. A good way to get started is to find a local gym that has boxing. Where I go, the workout is different everytime to keep things fresh and not be boring. To be effective in a fight is all about technique, it%26#039;s not about how big you are, but more about using what you have to be effective. You don%26#039;t need to weigh 300 lbs to throw a knockout punch on someone.
