Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
i used to spar, as an endurance training type thing, and my brother keeps me active currently since he's fully into the mma thing. he loves it, has had bouts around the states, etc. tough as nails, that kid. 18 years old and would kick the shit out of me. literally. he's a vicious kickboxer.
but i understand why your dad isn't into boxing. aesthetically speaking, mma looks really violent, because there's blood, torn flesh, etc. but boxing involves sustained, prolonged periods of head blows. mma is short, intense, and is very well conducted in terms of the rules and the way that it's refereed.
good luck with it. if you can stick to it, you'll be in the best shape of your life. few years ago i was beating on my little brother. that isn't the case any more. i look to him for protection when we go to the bars
wut. why would they make you sign that?
