    So I turned 29 today and decided to ask the chick I hang with to buy me one of those standing heavy bags.

    I'm a complete and total noob who hasn't thrown a punch since I was 14 years old. Before I get up off my ass and pay to take some classes, I figured I'd get a DVD or two and see if I could take a few baby steps.

    Can anyone recommend anything for someone's first day? I need a DVD that'll take me from the bottom up and show me the basics.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You can get a lot of free shit from youtube.
    Other then that the only person to come to mind is bas and his Istructional videos.

    For boxing i recommend Russ Anber's Basics dvd from title boxing.

    For kickboxing i recommend Rob Kaman's series

    For mma i would say go with Bas, you can never go wrong with him.

    Haha, with Bas' DVDs, they're great even if you just watch them from the couch with a bag of popcorn! =-)

    Before I started taking Muay Thai classes, I prepared myself by using the Rob Kaman videos to learn technique, and the Bas Rutten tapes for a good striking workout. (tapes like this are a great way to help you push yourself when you're starting out)
