Well ask them to train you, then spar. At my gym I had to wait 6 months before my first sparring session.

But dosen't do much good getting in the ring with no training, and you face a guy with expeirience and training. All you will learn is how to take a punch.

You will more than likely have to find a gym thats near a big city or large town if there isn't one near you.Just look in the yellow pages first. Now depending on your age and patience you'll start with amatuer bouts before you turn pro.Most trainers will have you do alot before you get in the ring just to spar. Any sensible sparring partner will also take it easy on you at first then welcome to the real world, good luck and keep us posted.....

The "Golden Gloves" is more of an organization than gym. Its the highest level of competition amongest the amatuer level.Most gym that have competetive boxing will have participated in golden glove tournaments. But first you have to find a gym that has boxing.good luck

if i spar with a novice i just use fotwork and flick the odd jab, most guy's starting out just try to rip your head off. it's fun making them miss and a good education for them aswell.

Tonight I did a google search on boxing gyms in Indiana. On the top of the list is Indiana Boxing Gyms. Clicking on to it, I saw a list of boxing gyms from all throughout the state. There are the names of twenty-two gyms, addresses, zip codes, cities, and phone #s. Titles of most of the gyms are in blue letters and you can click on to those names and get information about them. You would have to either phone or write to the gyms in black letters.

There is also a list of BOXING BOOKS in the upper right, just above the list. If you click on to that it will show covers of books about boxing for beginners such as: Boxing For Everyone, Boxer's Start-Up, Boxing The Complete Guide to Training and Fitness, The Boxer's Workout, and The Speedbag Bible and six more.

Above that list, also in upper right of the page, are the names of three more sites: HOW TO FIND A GOOD BOXING GYM, HOW TO FIND A GOOD BOXING TRAINER, and BOXING EQUIPMENT REVIEW.

I hope this information has been of help. Good luck.
