Pro, I do boxing now. It's hitting bags and in pairs using pads. I find it great for fitness and coordination and its really fun. Its a very disciplined professional club that I belong to and I'm in no danger of getting hit.

To protect my head I don't ski anymore. I'm sad about this. I also am extremely careful when walking on uneven ground or stairs.

In your boxing club is it against the rules to hit the head area?

Only the top level boxers are allowed to spar and only with head protection. The lower level members aren't allowed to hit anything other than pads held by another member or bags hanging from the ceiling. No body contact allowed whatsoever. Its perfectly safe. I havent been even accidentally touched even on my shoulder or hip ever.
PS. last night I stayed late and helped with training the top members - tried to punch them in the forehead while they ducked or blocked. omg such fun! they are sooo fast! and sooo strong!!

my daughter wanted to do amateur boxing. i discouraged her from it because i am not convinced that the protective headgear is protective enough. i certainly would never try to hit someone in the head, even if they had on protective headgear, unless i was in a threatening situation and i had to protect myself for real.
