So, you guys may think I’m totally crazy, but I want to be a boxer. OVU has started a boxing club, hopefully to be a team next fall. So before I tell you about my experience, let me tell you a little about the kind of boxing I'll be doing.
First of all, what I will be doing is very clean fighting. We will be going off a collegiate points system, as opposed to a knock-out system. Points are scored for clean hits, and when the buzzer sounds, she with the most points wins :D
Alright, so we had our first workout on Thursday. I LOVED it :) We started with footwork, jumped rope for five minutes, learned jabs,crosses and hooks. We also learned combos one through five. I am still so sore that laughing hurts! We also got in the right with Mel(the coach) and punched at the pad things.
I feel that I can easily get obsessed with boxing. I feel so strong when I’m hitting something, I feel super fit, and really fast. I love it. Stay tuned for my new pink boxing gear!
