Quotable Autobiographer

indeed it is
My first boxing class.

I pulled up to NBS gym just like I would any Tuesday or Friday night for judo, but some how it just felt different. Today wasn’t a day they held Judo classes, it was Monday, the day they held boxing and offered the introductory boxing lessons as well. As I strolled into the gym in shorts and a Tshirt instead of my regular judo gi set up I felt abit of nervousness. That same kinda of lingering unease at the unfamiliarity at your first day of highschool. You scan the room hoping and wishing to see a familiar face so you can begin your assimilation. Instead all I saw was people warming up on heavy bags, jumping rope and shadow boxing. Their hands flew with a sort of agility that could only come from muscle memory that took years and thousands of reps to build. I saw a girl who wasn’t doing any warmups so I went up and introduced myself. “Hi, I’m Karl. You here for the beginners class too?” She replied with a shy smile and a yeah and then we sat in awkward silence for abit before the classes began.


Soon class began and we did warmups with the entire boxing and kick boxing class before splitting of into our little newb corner. I was surprised by the number of beginners in the intro class as was the instructor. We had two kids who couldn’t be older than 12 or 14, Two girls in their late teens, Some dude who used to do Muay Thai and wore a NC state shirt and Myself. We went over basic punches, foot work, and such before getting a run down of the gym, and whats to be expected if we did want to end up competing. After we did some drills with the basics we were taught we were merged into the main class and we did pat jab counter drills. The “uke” threw a punch while tori pat blocked it rolled up their shoulder and threw a counter jab all at once. We drilled this for a significant about of time to get a good feel for the timing and what not before we moved on to conditioning.

I don’t like to swear much but HOLY CRUD, dat conditioning. Words cannot describe the hellish exercises we were put through but it was worth it and I had a smile on my face the entire time. Bear crawls, backward bear crawl, sideways bear crawls, Explosive pushups, sprints, suicides, skipping, backwards skipping, grape vines, Medicine ball sprints, Hindu squats, you name it we did it in circuits. By the end I was drenched in sweat. They have a fitness test they make their fighters do a week before their match and if they don’t do it in a satisfactory manner the Gym won’t let them fight. Which I thing is a great policy.

So tomorrow I will show up again for judo practice, then I will have my second boxing practice Wednesday. It looks like that I am going to stick with it and hopefully have my first amature fight before December. I am hoping my background in other striking arts and my extensive grappling background will help me advance quickly.
If I do well in amature boxing I will start trying out kick boxing and then advance into MMA.
