Manual labour does that to you as well. Trigger fingers.

my brother smashed a mirror shadow boxing, and obviously couldn't think up a good excuse quickly enough

(unless of course, that was an excuse...)

no doubt if you caught a cyclist shadow-cycling on his way to the toilet you'd consider it odd though

Come to think of it I shadowbox in a place that a view of my neighbours have a clear view on. I also do jump rope and stuff over there. They all know I'm a boxer and if not I don't really give a ****.

i also think like this. I think about hitting people when they are in my way or even if they arnt. Sometimes i look at people and think to myself, i would love to punch you in the face or id love to drop you like a sack of ****e with a body shot. I would never hit a inocent person for no reason though.

oh no, you actually show people boxing defensive moves at parties.

How do you even get on to the subject of ill show you a few moves. This is probably worse then shadow boxing at a party. You would look like a gimp if you were showing somebody defensive moves then he beat the ****e out of you. Would be kind of ironic.

We used to get people shadow boxing in the club I worked at years back, they'd do it to try and scare people, it looked stupid and they usually got carried out.

Not like I'll show you a few moves, it starts as a discussion but you basically end up having to demonstrate it. I have these kind of discussions with other boxers or enthusiasts, as they know I'm obsessed with it.

I do the same. I'm always showing people at work little things like how to stand, how to hold their hands, how to get more power into a shot. little things that make them think wow.

they routinely like to come up to me and hit my hand or my arm to test out their new found strength.

it's jokes and fun.

You didn't. Believe me, you looked like a *****. She was just too nice to not walk away.

I see guys doing it in the park along with sprints, burpees and stuff. I don't think badly of them...
