I was doing boxing and kickboxing (with low kicks, no knees) at a competitive level a few years back. Due to insufficient free time I have stopped for a couple of years and now I decided to learn some grappling.
I chose to begin Judo and I really like it and most important, I like my judo club a lot. However I do not wish to "forget" my boxing as I would like to be a more cross-trained athete.
The problem is that I currently live in a small town and the boxing club is aimed for athletes who want to do fights. I have done my fights in boxing but I now I want to learn judo, and therefore I will train almost on a daily basis for judo (I wish to compete, ... that is when I learn the sport first!).
The other boxing/kickboxing schools that I found are more or less in a McDojo mode. I do not know if the instructors are good but there are no real sparring sessions so I do not think that it makes much sense to join such a club.
The question is therefore simple, how do I keep up with my boxing by self-practicing 1-2 times a week.
Friends of mine can hold hand pads however thay cannot help me much with combinations that much, they 're pretty slow and I cannot jab hook ...wait
duck and then left hook.
Has anybody been through a similar situation, how did he/she manage to keep in touvh with his/her previous sport?
