I recently started to box (just using a bag at the moment). I find it very empowering and energising. Any thoughts on whether this is a negative thing to do in regards to Buddhism? Also, is there not some distinction between learning to defend yourself/feel confident defending yourself vs boxing to inflict the most harm/boxing as sport?
As a woman, I think it's important to know how to defend yourself, or to feel confident that you can - so if you are in a compromising situation, just the mere confidence that you can handle yourself will mean that you may not have to resort to violence.
