Nerdcore Boxing Returns!

After more than a year away from blogging, he's back! Woohoo! Welcome back, big guy! It's great to see you blogging again. I'm as eager as ever to read your site. I'm glad to learn things are going well and you're back to training.

To the rest of my readers, I encourage you to read his blog. As you can see from his past blog entries, he publishes a lot of useful content and logs his experiences, which seem fairly similar to my own adventures in the sweet science.

Hat tip to Marc at My Boxing Blog, who keeps punching as the Australian winter sets in.

Thanks Steve! Sorry for being so out of touch this past year. I need to keep in touch with my cyber buddies just like I do with my "real world" friends.

You're most welcome. I'm glad to see that you're back in action.

I can appreciate the difficulties of keeping in contact with all your friends, especially given the very full year you have just experienced. These days, I no longer distinguish between the "cyber buddies" and the "real world" friends, simply because the two groups can overlap one another significantly.

I've had the pleasure of meeting several of my online friends in various settings. I've gotten to box against one of the guys twice, and to train with a few of the others while visiting their gym. I've also had the chance to meet and either chill out or share a meal with some others and I have found that they have been invariably the same as they are online; happily, I had no surprises.

Anyway, I'm glad you're back. I see you're wasting no time: you've just posted an interesting entry about 3-dimensional boxing defense. It's good stuff.

If all goes well, I'll be putting the gloves on with a Canadian friend later this summer. I'm just hoping he's not reading your blog! :-)
