arthursze has a little shameless behaviour in the past
From grappling to boxing, gloves

I wrestled in high school and had been taking jujitsu classes for the past year, until I moved. Now, I find myself less than half a mile from a boxing gym. I wanted to know what you striking guys think about the transfer of a traditional boxing class to both mma (something I might get into after some boxing experience) and self-defense. What are the primary considerations I need to keep in mind? The biggest concern I have is the transfer of boxing with big, padded gloves versus mma gloves or naked fists.
