Here is a tip: you can find (online if you have to) punching boxes....get one. They are basically a padded square looking box that goes on a wall. Get one and start punching it. I started that when I joined Karate as a teen. The first few weeks your knuckles will be red, sore and bruised. Then they start to harden up. I wouldn't recommend fighting until you harden your knuckles. It seems like a small thing but it will have a huge impact on both how hard you hit and how much hitting you can do before your wrists/knuckles give out.
Just in case it's needed they are basically wood wrapped in what is a lightly padded leather though there are probably different kinds. You can make one at home if your handy. It isn't about speed or anything...just punch the thing. Like I said...it will suck for a few weeks but when your knuckles harden up you will be very happy you did it.

"The sun is always gonna rise, and always gonna set and I'll just keep on punching because everyday is gonna bring something different and I just want to be ready for it."

If you refer to a fighter who you've never met in real life as "my boy" as though their performance somehow reflects well on you for simply being a fan, you're a lame ass.
