    Just no, no it should not............ otherwise it's going to take someone ages to get their 1st Dan black boxing shorts.......unless it's a McBoxing Gym and your mum knows the instructor.........really well........

    well you could supplement your boxing forms training with some braking practice, and maybe some improvised form competitions to dance music would help speed the student along?

    Would it be disingenuous to wear black boxers whilst in a gym, if you haven't earned them............

    Also I sometimes use a black or brown belt to work but maybe as I have only been working for this company for a year......a white or yellow one would be better......

    already addressed that.

    those fighters are more like traditional kung fu watch the movie kick boxer with JCVD to see a real accurate representation of the style

    No, boxers would get destroyed in a muay thai fight. And Muay Thai figjters would get desttoyed in boxing.
    Once again, I said striking meaning any individual striking art. Never did I say that boxing was on some level of its own or anything like that.

    Well, just saying the level of boxing next time. Or pugilism...or something.

    When people say striking around here, it generally refers to more than just hands

    Your post was confusing because you're saying the May/Mac fight showed the difference in striking between boxers and fighters, when really it was the difference in boxing between them (as evidenced by your post about a pure boxer going into less restrictive rulesets).

    I was thinking due to the structure of most MMA gyms, it would difficult to train somebody like this from the ground up unless he had a dedicated team from the get go
