What sports do you guys do?
The ordinary footy, rugby, tennis etc
Or COOL sports like rockclimbing, abseiling, kayaking, canooing etc.

I love rockclimbing and kayaking, they're the best =D

You missed out boxing mate!

Long term passionate football fan, good to watch and can be very exicting. I like playing it too but I picked up many injuries while playing 5-a-side including a 2 week concussion where I slipped and some big Portuguese guy tripped over me and landed straight on my head.

Formula 1 is ok I suppose, a bit boring though. It's good to see those machines thunder around a track. Incredibly quick and you'll only know how quick they actually are when you see one of them compared to a sports car or DTM car... or a normal car in a race.

Cricket is a terrible sport, like Golf and Snooker too. Tennis is not too bad though, good to see Nadal and Federer as those two are head and shoulder above the others.

But for me it's boxing that I like, I'm learning it now and a hard one it is.

well i guess as far as sport goes.. the only one i'd say i love is boxing. Don't do it as much anymore though. But i can't say i don't like the odd game of footy or rugby though.
Find it quite boring watching the sports though. Unless its an exciting match or fight ovbiously.

If I pass my PRMC and I go into the same troop as you, maybe you could teach me a few advanced techniques ;)

Bring head gear and sparring gloves ;)

*text deleted* your probably right there. dunno they may go a bit sckitso if they were to someone sparring in their free time.

I've only been into boxing for like 2 months now but it's really grown on me since I've taken it up. It's a lot harder than any other sport out there in my opinion. I think I'm sparring tonight, any tips?

i did it for 5 years. had 15 fights, which isn't a lot in that time if u think about it. But i was injured quite a bit and couldn't find fight and wasn't fit and just like every possible reason going *text deleted*. I don't do it know because my trainerr started being a *text deleted** with me because i wanted to join the marines and focus on training more.

Tips.. Well erm.. guess i'd have to see you spar really. But keep your hands up obviously and don't throw wild punches. best to pick your punches and move or wait for him and then counter. only 1-2 punches then move away. I find it much easier to stay on my back foot then counter with 1 or 2 punches than go forward throwing. just use the defences u should have been shown and counter and u should do good. Thats what amature boxing is mainly about.

no it's not a huge one, it's mainly one of the starting championships. Which i think it was people under 20 fights can enter, people with more than 20 go in the next one up obviously and so on.. but it's like the whole of great britain, depending on how many people enter oviously though. I have had 2 fights in gurnseys as well and one in Poland :) And nope mate i'm southpaw. :)

Well I sparred in the club for the first time last Friday and I did quite well. I was against the people that joined the same time as me. My tactics were to wait for his jab and counter, and it worked a few times. Rarely got caught, maybe 3 or 4 times in the 4 rounds of boxing. But it's natural for it to be like that. When you go wild I think it shows that your just focusing on beating the sh*t out of your sparring partner rather than learning new techniques :laugh:

I do rowing, standard marines stuff (running, circuits bla bla), mountain biking, and mixed martial arts (Thai-Kick-Jitsu, a cross between Aikido, Muay Thai, Taekwondo, and Jiu-Jitsu). My favourite is without a doubt mma.

One of my boxing coachs is an army pti (bassingbourn barracks is just down the road), and he basically says, just do straight punches (shortest distance between two points is a straight line), and get super fit. When i first starting a few years ago i just went in looking for a knockout - right hook, upper cut, etc, but its more about hitting a lot quickly, rather than hitting hard not very often.
