Not sure if I'm posting this in the correct section, but amatuer sounded like the best place to ask. I was wondering how to get started fighting. I'm pretty novice, i wrestled for 10 years and had some minimum boxing experience, other than that just fights that have broken out and stuff. I'd no doubt want more training, probably in boxing or kickboxing, but how do you find exhibitions with other novices? The other problem is that i live in South Dakota and the sport isn't quite as popular and accesible as bigger places.

My suggestion would be to find a "combat" type of gym (MMA, BJJ, boxing, kickboxing, etc..) and start training. Most of them either have, or have access to, promotions.

Good Luck

If you're considering a bag to use at home, here is a site I found with a small matrix about different types of heavy bags and reviews.
