It helps alot but eventually you will have to find a place with sparring partners. If you plan on eventually finding a place to spar then fuck yeah shadow boxing, heavy bag training, and practicing techniques and learning at home makes alot of difference. Will you learn to be instinctive and predict opponents strikes, no. Will you be able to take a punch and not be flustered, no. But at least you'll have alot of other things down and your hand speed, cardio, power and accuracy can be much higher.

It's a slower and less effective way to train but it is beneficiall especially when compared to doing jack and shit at home.

Hitting a bag, heavy or speed is only part of the game. Go to a gym in your area, pay your dues for at least 3 months to get an idea how the game is played, be polite and ask for pointers. 99 percent of the fellas there will be happy to help.

Train what you learn at home, more time spent training means better results. Once you have the basics down your time training alone is much better spent.

If you insist on not going to a gym to learn then Ill give you one piece of advice. Skip (with a jump rope), a lot, at least 15 min a day. Stay on your toes when you do it, this will build your calves up for quick footwork and help you with timing a little. Seriously though, train boxing a bit at a gym with fellas who know how to move fast on their feet.

anyone else feel like this kid is fucking with us?

If ur not good luck with everything, just get a buddy to spar with you if you wanna be a better fighter. getting better technique, power and speed buuilds up your confidence so its a good thing, but you gotta be able to use it in real situations not against a bag filled with sand. Sparring helps with your reflexes, speed and accuracy, which are pretty damn important lol. Srsly get a partner if you wanna be good.
Headgear is not really necessary, get a mouthguard tho, its cheaper and its very important protection. and respect each other enough to not try and KO eachother like on tv.

Hey dude i would say with the proper eye for it yes its possible to learn boxing to a certain level on your own but you have to make sure your not just willy nilly throwing punches.
At the age of 14 i started to teach myself to box basically because i couldnt afford to take any kind of martial arts.
I started taking martial arts at about 16-17 and clearly took a very fast stride from anyone else in the area of boxing.
I am now a muay thai fighter for the last twoo years with amateur and a little bit of professional experience and i must say alot of my hand work in my skills has come from just being in touch with it from a early point and has helped me alot in gaining experience in other fields of combat.

But last and not least you really have to work hard and have a good eye in any form of combat you train in. Simply just showing up is not enough to learn the things you could be learning from whatever it is you may be doing!

You can, of course, pick up some new stuff and try it out. Just be careful trying to dive too deep, because what you're trying might be based on imperfect technique and flawed motions to begin with in it.

You already have the MT background, so that should help you in seeing the little details in videos you watch to get a bit better precision training, but it still won't be as good as it could be.

IMNSHO, you should start off by watching some old Shane Moseley, Mike Tyson, Ali, etc. fights and see their styles of movement and things they do somewhat regularly.
