When it comes to your boxing education don't shortchange yourself. Learning how to box from someone whose never done it before is kind of like learning about the birds and bees from Sister Joseph Loretta. Appreciate the effort but not the outcome. The fact is training like a fighter has implications that go well beyond the ring. Adding braver and saner to stronger and leaner looks a lot better on your resume when things get rough. Whether it's private or group training you'll learn skills that will stay with you for a lifetime.
