Point taken, thanks for the tip. It will be shadow boxing for him. I do have time, he has not taken much of an interest to the bag yet.

Unless you rarely plan on hitting the bag stay away from the cheap Everlast and Century bags you find at sports academy. If you hit them on a regular basis you will only get from 6 months to a year out of them before the D rings tear off, the bag splits, or it hourglasses beyond repair. If your at 230 you need a heavy bag. I'm a middleweight, grated I cut a good bit to get there, but I hit a 150lb bag
