im soon 18 btw idk if this has any impact
go in the dangerous part of your city and challenge local thugs to fights
this will help you with experience when you start
thatboxing is not so good.
Did muay thai for 12 years and mma/bjj. Being muscular is not an advantage.
You'll see when you get kneed in the stomach or get low kicked hard.
Anyway, go for muay thai! it's really fun! :)
don't have fight experience either so don't know
last time i fight was vs 10 club bouncers & they had to bring riot squad where i willingly walked away, insurance covered the damage i caused
I started MMA at 20, I was fit and strong without fighting experience just like you.
I been dominated even by physically weak guys for first two months, then I learned basic wrestling and grappling (it's easier to learn compared striking) and started winning some sparrings. In 4 months I started winning something in stand striking. In 6 months I participated in my first amateur tournament and get my ass beaten, but I don't regret.
I mean, it's not hard to learn basics at all. In grappling and wrestling you just need to learn controlling your weight and opponent's weight. In striking you need to overcome the fear of being punched in the face. Every newcomer's problem is that people cover their heads and close their eyes when they getting punched, and if it happens you don't see what is happening, and get lost. When you overcome this reflex, you will be able to win sparrings in stand.
Get ready to be rocked around in the beginning. But don't let it refrain you from fighting, it's a phase that every new fighter has to go through. It's hardening you, you will get used to taking a beating.
