Good Start ???

When school starts I will be attending boxing club 3 days a week and a subbmission gym 3 or maybe 4 days a week

I have no past fighting experience
Im only 16 but would like to start fighting and maybe one day make it to the real octagon.

My questions are

1. Is this a decent start to somebody without any experience.

2. What age are you aloud to start fighting

Its a good start but train at home, that will make you look better in the gym and be more prepared. Dont just go out there wanting to swing away. There is a proper and certain way for everything to ensure you dont get hurt.

if your in america you can fight before the age of 18, we have many amature events to to with just boxing if you want that to be your base art. such events are smokers and golden gloves.

you ask is what you have going on a good start, i say yes because most people just sit there and wish, while you are taking action.

i belive instead of starting in your house, go to the gym and learn how to throw a proper punch instead of throwing a sad ass punch thinking you know what you are doing.

Someone kinda versed in fighting but in shape will almost always beat someone very versed in fighting that is out of shape.

I thought there was some mysterious technique that would allow my skill to beat people without maintaining my body, this is entirely untrue as i have found.

I find it alot better to have everything a step away. Easier than going to a gym and the equipment is always free. A gym is always ideal but I think everyone should have a home gym to.

in the gym you start form the basics. without a solid foundation it is hard to build up. if you do not know how to breath, throw a proper punch, slip a punch, set up a punch, foot work, combo, when to or not to turn it on.

who will teach all these lessons to you?

For 5'10 you're way to light. Work on gaining muscle slowly over the next couple years and be a rock solid 155 or 160 in a couple years.

175 is damn good for your weight though.

You can fight in boxing or martial arts tournies , just not real matches until you're 18.

Frank Shamrock
Aleksander Emelianenko
Fedor Emelianenko
Shogun
Phil Baroni

Rep me + and I will return the favor.

When I mentioned train at home I meant on top of the boxing and grappling gym. You didnt mention much about working out and I figured sence your 16 its easier to do home training then a gym. When I was 16 I wanted to join a gym but around here you had to be 18 for insurence purposes for them. I should have been more clear like, Dont just depend on classes to keep you in shape. Work on your routine out of class too.
