i mean i have a basement....but im not sure where im gonna place this bag...yikes

He is saying hang it from the beams on the cieling of your basement. If they are sturdy. If not do you have a garage or carport? They may also have strong beams in the cieling you can hang it from.

As a last resoert what about a tree, if it is well covered from rain. Maybe use a tarp to cover.

Thats where i hung mine, in the basement off one of the floor support beams.

My parents used to get freaked if it was 1am and i was getting rid of some stress.

Then i was kicked to the garage with the punching bag :laugh:

Make sure to turn your jab over, same thing with the rest of your punches.

Well if your right handed (I am) there is the left jab, right straight, right cross, overhand right, left hook, right hook, left uppercut, right uppercut. So that would make it 8 punches.

Well if you live near a gym go there, its always great to go to a full fledged boxing gym to be trained. I go to Larry Holmes gym in Easton, PA. Larry is in there all the time and jokes around with me and all of the other guys. But training there is finominal, and Larry gives me pointers all of the time.

Good question, I'm guessing female because of the kitten part. No offence if you are a guy though. I like kittens too, even though I prefer dogs.
