What do you plan to "figure out"? If you don't know? You won't know what you don't know.

Jump right in to TRAINING. You will need it to get the basics down and your arm strength/endurance up. You should also work on the double end for jab accuracy and breaking in your Boxing shoes moving around the ring. That will take you 1-3 months depending on your fitness level.

Sparring? That depends on the kind of guy you are. Some guys can go in there unprepared, take a licking, and happily return. Some guys take that first whipping and never return. You may be the former, but better to train a bit ahead of time and be prepared than find out you are the latter.

I'm in Daegu, Korea. Where are you other guys living? My boxing gym is sweet, the coach is good and everyone there is cool. The only problem is that they won't let you have an organized bout, some shit in the rules or so they tell me. Plenty of good sparring though.

Go to the gym, they won't throw you in with the wolves. I usually see beginners doing a lot of shadow sparring before they go into the ring full contact, so don't worry about that. You learn to box by boxing.

P.S. Enjoy Korea, there's a good time to be had.
