Boxing is misunderstood by people who do not box.
Boxing is the ultimate sport for countering stress. The combination of strength training and aerobic workout provides the best of both worlds in terms of feeling a muscular pump and stimulating the cardiovascular system - both of which enhance your well-being.
Possessing the skills to look after yourself provides a significant amount of confidence. Despite what most people think, boxers do not seek confrontation just because they have the ability to fight. After a hard training session in the gym, the last thing they would want is to get into a street fight.
Boxing is not a team sport where if you slack off a little, a team member can help you out. In boxing, there is no one else to depend on but yourself.
Boxing is a skill sport that takes years to learn! You do not "play" boxing, as you play other sports. It is impossible to understand and appreciate boxing, until you have stepped into a Boxing Gym and experienced the sport first hand!
