Six months ago my friend Joe Jingoli recommended boxing lessons. Although I had spent years weight training I had never developed a punch. Learning how to load your weight behind your right and jabbing with your left has been a great experience in achievement and success. I have spent hours on the bag and working the speed bag. Suppose you are attacked in a parking lot or, even worse, a corporate board room. Suppose, in the middle of a discussion, a business man jumps up and tries to strangle you. The defensive moves I learned in martial arts free you of his grip. Now you are prepared to take the fight to him, using his neck-tie as a cinch and punching him in the head with your right, shifting your weight behind the punch by leaning slightly in to the front foot and pivoting on the rear foot while shifting your body weight while turning your hips in the follow through of the punch. I highly recommend boxing lessons.
