How is that not available in my 50 mile radius
I'm taking personal lessons. The group classes in my gym are for MMA/grappling but like you I wanted to get some boxing/striking fundamentals and conditioning down first before I try anything else. My typical lesson starts off with 3 rounds of jump rope, followed by 3-5 rounds of basic body movement/defense drills (bobbing, weaving, etc), 3-8 rounds of pads, heavy bag, shadowboxing or non-contact sparring and we finish off with a couple of rounds of agility ladder drills and/or ab work.
My right hand is kind of sore now from my last heavy bag workout (also I might need heavier gloves) so we will be doing some basic Muay Thai to let that recover a bit.
